The Norfolk Academy Athletic Program is an integral part of the school’s overall educational experience. It contributes to the physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being of every student-athlete in a manner consistent with Norfolk Academy’s overall Philosophy and Objectives.
Athletics is powerful because it can bridge gaps, bring people together who otherwise might not interact, and provide opportunities not available elsewhere. The culture of Norfolk Academy Athletics enhances each student’s overall educational experience and character formation.
Norfolk Academy’s teacher-coach model builds cohesion and continuity throughout our Middle and Upper Schools. With classroom teachers coaching nearly all of our competitive athletic teams, students come to know and appreciate one another on multiple levels. Trust earned in the classroom continues to build on the field, and lessons learned on the court—about teamwork, about patience, about strategy and tactics—find applications back in the classroom.
