Norwood-Fontbonne Academy

At Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, a Catholic, independent academy for preschool - eighth grade students in historic Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, children from a diverse and inclusive community of families come together for an independent school experience like no other. 

Inspired by the mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph that "all may be one," NFA students cultivate unity with God, their "dear neighbor," the school, and each other.

NFA empowers students through a self-directed approach to learning that permeates our classrooms. 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 immerservice service opportunities, our students grow into independent learners and confident leaders.

NFA offers a Montessori academic path and a Primary academic path for students age 3 - 3rd grade. The two paths seamlessly merge in fourth grade.

"The education at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy is OUTSTANDING! The children come home engaged and excited and ready to learn the next day. We are so thrilled that we made this decision to send our children to NFA." - Current Parent

    We are so glad that we have chosen to send our children to Norwood-Fontbonne Academy. At NFA, we have the opportunity either to choose the Montessori experience or the primary/traditional experience, knowing that each environment is going to benefit the needs of our children. We see our children coming home with empathy in their hearts, empathy for their environment around them and people around them and it’s all due to the skills and the ethics that they are teaching inside the classroom. The student are doing community service projects and they’re also learning about people around them. The education at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy is outstanding. The children come home engaged and excited and ready to learn the next day. We are so thrilled that we made this decision to send our children to NFA.
