The Norwich Free Academy is all about opportunities. We sum up our mission in four words: Providing opportunities…preparing lives. At NFA students develop the skills they need to achieve their dreams; whatever those dreams may be. NFA graduates go on to become doctors and lawyers, world-famous authors, professional football players, distinguished servicemen, artists and Tony award-winning producers.
Students are encouraged to ask themselves, "What are my capabilities, strengths, talents, interests, passions? Then NFA provides opportunities to discover the answer.
Standing on campus, gazing upon the Slater Museum looming behind the cherry blossoms trees, students become part of the rich history of alumni who have answered that question for themselves. For over a century, NFA educators and staff have provided a nurturing and challenging environment for students to learn, to experience, to explore, and to grow.
Wildcats leave NFA with an obligation; a passion really - to leave their mark on the world. Their passion drives them to teach, to fight for human rights, to lead their communities, to inspire and discover. Wildcats enter all walks of life --politics, business, medicine, law, social service, public service, education, and many, many more. Wildcats become responsible members of their local, national, and world communities. Their passion sets them apart from the crowd, and we are proud of that passion.
Become part of the NFA community. Schedule a campus tour, attend an open house or shadow a current student to experience the Wildcat spirit for yourself.
