NFA blends the best of public and private education, offering students a breadth of opportunities for academic, co-curricular and social engagement. Since 1856, Norwich Free Academy has served a vital public purpose: to enrich, develop, refine and prepare its students to reach their goals beyond high school.
At NFA, we believe that all students can learn and achieve when presented with a variety of opportunities and teachers who will challenge them and guide them. With more than 250 courses to choose from, students at every level are challenged to achieve their best. From its earliest days, NFA has been fortunate to attract a culturally diverse and inclusive community. Over time, this has enabled students to experience the richness of learning that exists within NFA’s global community and see the world from a variety of perspectives.
