Norfolk Academy's International Programs allow our students to journey beyond the classroom with teachers and peers. Students gain the knowledge and skill necessary to effectively engage with communities in our Tidewater region and around the globe; develop maturity of mind, body, and character; and become culturally perceptive citizens.
We provide a variety of opportunities to learn abroad, from traditional exchanges to service-learning trips to global classroom programs, which allow for increased self-awareness and the development of true global citizens.
The first thing that I realized was that I am more capable than I thought; I never thought I would have
been able to have conversations in Spanish like I did. The second thing I learned was all of the
small differences between Spanish culture and ours that make both cultures unique.
Finally, I learned that you can make friends no matter where you are in the world.
