At Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, our motto, Honor Above All, is the cornerstone of life on and off our campus. We take it into our daily pursuits with an enthusiasm that is not easily understood until one comes to know our community- up close and personal. We invite you to visit us, so that you may experience, firsthand, a school community that is like none other.
For forty-six years our students have engaged with their teachers and fellow students the pursuit of a rich independent school education. Our faculty has graced their calling by bringing to our classrooms a commitment to teach, and teach well. Nansemond-Suffolk Academy is a place where every student has that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lay a foundation for life-long learning. At Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, we are a close-knit community that is committed to provide a superior independent school experience in an atmosphere of mutual trust.
That trust enables our students to take chances in the intimacy of our classrooms; to develop artistic talent and aesthetic sensitivity in our choir and on our stages; and to exercise good sportsmanship and enjoy the camaraderie in being a valued member of one of our interscholastic athletic teams. A Nansemond-Suffolk Academy education is a holistic one; it is one with aspects that we deem essential so that our children will be well prepared, not only for college, but also for the complexities of tomorrow’s world. Indeed, the end depends on the beginning!
We warmly invite you to come visit us in person. Honor Above All is something best experienced up close and personal. Examine for yourself the combination of independence, trust and community that is uniquely NSA.
