The Norfolk Academy is a college preparatory co-educational day school that strives to assist its students to develop maturity of body, mind, and character.
We hope to engender an awareness and appreciation of intellectual, aesthetic, and moral excellence in a setting that offers well-developed programs, not only in the academic disciplines, but also in fine arts and athletics.
We aim to prepare students to become useful and responsible citizens of a democracy.
We strive to make them aware of their roles in creating a just society.
We are committed to the spiritual and ethical values of the Judeo-Christian heritage and envision that these will become a part of the being of each member of the Norfolk Academy community.
