At NFA, children from a diverse and inclusive community of families come together for an independent school experience like no other.
We empower students through a self-directed approach to learning that permeates beyond our classrooms. Here, students own their education and explore their potential as they're challenged to shape a more compassionate and socially responsible society.
By actively engaging in stimulating academic pursuits, extensive co-curricular offerings, and immersed in service opportunities, our students grow into independent and confident learners.
Age 3 - Age 5
NFA offers two educational options for children age three through third grade: Montessori and Primary. We work in partnership with each family to identity the best educational path for your child's learning style.
1st - 3rd Grade
NFA's unique, dual academic path program continues in 1st - 3rd grade in the Fontbonne Building. We work in partnership with each family to identity the best educational path for your child's learning style.
4th & 5th Grade
In fourth grade, the students from our Montessori and Primary classes seamlessly merge into our intermediate program. We like to think of our fourth and fifth grades as the bridge to our Middle School.
6th - 8th Grade
Students learn and explore in ways that prepare them to excel in the region's top high schools. We position students to enter the wider world aware of their own worth and their power as a positive force for good.
