Most Meaningful Activity
College T-Shirt Day.
Over the past two years, I have watched many of my friends rep their college shirts and have been waiting to do the same. It is a very exciting and jubilant activity that marks the beginning of the end for seniors at Norfolk Academy.
Inspirational Teacher Coach
Coach Acra was my U.S. History teacher and my basketball coach for three years. His energy and passion in everything that he does has motivated me to work hard on and off the court. He is a role model and mentor for me, and I know we will keep in touch in the coming years.
The Academy Difference
Norfolk Academy is much more than just a college preparatory school. The teachers at NA take the time to interact with their students and get to know them on a more personal level. My history teacher was my basketball coach, and my statistics teacher was my lacrosse coach. I am grateful for all of those interactions and experiences that have taught me how to engage and interact with adults.
Making My Mark
During my time at Norfolk Academy I have done my best to better my local community. I have worked to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay, and I hope that younger students will carry on those efforts that are so meaningful to our environment in Hampton Roads. 
The thing that most makes me a Bulldog is…my pride in and passion for everything that I do.
