Norfolk Academy

About Norfolk Academy

Founded in 1728, Norfolk Academy is an independent, nonsectarian, coeducational day school of approximately 1200 students in grades 1-12. Located on a 70-acre campus in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, the school for generations has prepared young men and women not only for the most selective colleges and universities in the country but also for lives of learning, leadership, and service. An honor system is central to the school’s philosophy, as are traditions such as a public speaking program, family-style lunches with faculty and students sharing the midday meal together, open lockers, and daily assembly. A recently completed $68 million capital campaign has provided the school a national-caliber leadership center, a state-of-the-art athletic stadium and track, and major additions to the Lower School and dining facilities. Norfolk Academy enjoys a position among the top handful of independent day schools in the country.
