School Notes

  • Trusted and reciprocally empowering relationships form the bedrock of the Norfolk Academy experience. The inspiring relationships we forge with one another underlie our college-prep curriculum, our innovative programming, and our time-honored traditions, like the Honor System.No exciting discovery, no personal breakthrough, no learning epiphany occurs at the Academy without the heartfelt, inspiring, and perspective-shifting relationships that students purposefully build with one another and with their teachers-who also serve as trusted coaches and wise advisors.The relationships we begin building in grade one-and that grow in ardor and complexity all the way through grade 12-make possible both the authentic kindness and the outsized accomplishments of our students. Years after graduation, Norfolk Academy students still count their friends and teachers here as the largest influences on their entire lives.
