Academics

NFA offers an integrated, self-directed approach to learning that combines academic challenge and abundant opportunities to participate in athletics and the arts, with meaningful face-to-face community service and a spiritual foundation. We work with parents, students and faculty to provide the best learning environment for each child. 

In short, we have a holistic approach to education, and prepare our graduates to attend the top high schools in the area. Many of our graduates earn scholarships that are in line or higher than the percentage of scholarships awarded by those area high schools.

NFA’s faculty, many of whom are studying or have earned advanced degrees, regularly go beyond the classroom, and continue their own learning and professional development, so they can bring what they’ve learned back to students. They participate in out-of-the-box learning experiences, and maintain personal connections with our students, and act as mentors and role models.

Our learning support program offers the student in need early intervention, small group/one-on-one instruction, frequency of support, consistency of staff, and communication within the school and with parents.
