Field Day

Field Day Race

Norfolk Academy Field Day, established in 1891, is the longest standing community event at the school. Students, faculty, parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, and members of the community gather on campus for a day of family fun on the first Saturday in May.

All proceeds from Field Day raise money for need-based financial aid and programs that directly enhance the educational experience for all students.
