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.
Field Day is truly a community effort with over 40 volunteer committees working together to create a day of fun and philanthropy. Activities include the Bulldog Bazaar, a faculty-student kickball game, the talent show, fair games, Faculty Follies, the raffle drawing, a Fun Run, the Bulldog Marketplace and much more. Field Day is a fantastic tradition thanks to the many volunteers who participate!
