Exciting Choices


On March 23, Gov. Ralph Northam announced all onsite classes for public and private schools are suspended through the remainder of this school year, to protect Virginians' health during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Norfolk Academy is committed to doing everything we can to support the Tidewater community through this unprecedented challenge.

In mid-March, we implemented a Distance Learning model that will continue through the close of the school year. All spring extracurricular programs, including athletics, are canceled for the remainder of the school year.

Other spring/summer events: 

  • May 2: Virtual Family Fun Run in celebration of Field Day
  • May 15: Seniors conclude studies and exams; Virtual Senior Speech Finals 
  • May 26: Virtual Ninth Grade Speech Finals
  • May 27: Virtual Lower School Awards for Grades 1-5 
  • May 28: Virtual Ninth Grade Awards
  • May 29: Final day of school for students in grades 1-11; Virtual Sixth Grade Closing Exercises 
  • July 26: Tentative on-campus Graduation for the Class of 2020, if conditions allow at that point.

Unfortunately, the pandemic has caused us to cancel all six weeks of Summer at the Academy. Please visit our website periodically, as we explore other potential summer offerings for our families.

The road ahead may require much endurance, but we know that our family will, like the Bulldogs we are, show our stamina, ingenuity, and love of learning. We will continue to send updates through emails, our social media channels, and this page, to keep you apprised of developments as conditions evolve.
