Admissions

Come learn about all the ways students become empowered at Norfolk Academy. In this supportive, trusting community, children not only gain an outstanding education, but they develop their voice, strengthen their character, identify their passions, and stretch their limits. At NA, they learn to speak confidently, work collaboratively, and think critically. They build integrity and honor. They grow into young men and women who yearn to make the world a better place, and who have the skills and drive to help make that happen.
