Student Life

The Operations staff welcomes you to Florida Air Academy!

An old saying goes, “Rules begin where common sense ends.”  My name is David Graham, but I'm generally called Dean Graham on campus.  Here in Operations, we believe that to be true and we urge you to exercise your common sense and instincts to assist you in making good choices.  The Operations department is here to help you in whatever way possible and to educate students in making the right choice.

In an ideal world, you’ll only come see us for mail, student services, transportation, and residential or day student life, but we’re also here to instill an understanding of how to live together as a community where everyone’s rights and privileges are upheld and appreciated. 

In my opinion, as we attempt to educate all students in ways in which they learn to get along and live with others, some boundaries prove to be helpful; thus our rules and guidelines are designed to provide you with an exceptional education and a safe and healthy environment.
With well over 20 years as a Dean of Students, a total of 38 years in a boarding school environment, and raising my own four children on campus, I am well aware of what it’s like to be a boarding student and a day student at a school such as Florida Air Academy. 

As a Dean living on campus, I am available 24/7 as the need arises; being on campus gives me the deepest possible insight into what’s going on and where problems might arise.  Rest assured, you will be safe and secure here at FAA and my staff will do everything in our power to help you make your time here a success. 

Please feel free to stop by my office during of your free time with questions, comments, suggestions, or a story to tell me.  We are here for you.
