Norfolk Academy's comprehensive athletic program features 74 interscholastic teams for grades 7 – 12. Teams compete in the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools, the League of Independent Schools, and the Virginia Prep League.
The combination of sportsmanship, talented athletes and hard work result in many competitive triumphs, and we send our share of graduating seniors to play on NCAA Division I and III teams
At the heart of our athletic program is the teacher-coach model. Together with the students in the classroom and on the playing field, our coaches help develop strong character, discipline and leadership skills in our athletes.
