Allis House

Upon her death in 1957, Alice A. Allis, a former Trustee and one of three female Corporators during the school’s first one hundred years, willed to the Academy her home together with a large tract of land. The home, remodeled and subsequently expanded, now serves as the Academy’s administration building, housing the NFA Medical Center and the offices of Finance, Personnel, Registrar, Director of Curriculum, Director of Guidance, Director of Student Services, and Head of School.
