The Academy Fund

First grade girls

Make your voice heard. Give today!

The Academy Fund embodies the generosity of parents, alumni, teachers, grandparents, and friends who believe in the power of the Norfolk Academy education and want to support its continued growth and success. 
When you give to The Academy Fund, you uphold the student-teacher bonds that help children strengthen their character, their skills, and their ability to lead in creating a better world. You demonstrate that together we can positively affect the lives of young people and the communities in which they live. Thank you.
