Each day, the Norfolk Academy campus buzzes with energy, hums to the frequency of mutual respect and the joy inherent in learning for learning’s sake. We come together to accomplish much more than any one of us could alone. Explore the Academy Advantage, featuring Norfolk Academy’s innovative education delivered through unique programs, which take learning beyond the classroom and into the wider world.

The Honor System is at the heart of our learning community, touching every interaction on campus.

Confident Speakers

Students discover their own distinctive voices, emerging as poised and confident public speakers.

Engaged Leaders

Our students grow into compassionate, civic-minded leaders.

Experiential Learning

Exploration creates memorable experiences in the classroom and beyond.

Global Learning

Our distinctive approach to travel develops students into culturally perceptive citizens.

Career Connections

Internships help students explore their interests and discover their future paths.

After 12 years on Norfolk Academy’s campus, I know what true leadership means. It isn’t about speaking the loudest or longest but about listening, encouraging, inspiring, delegating, and asking for help.
