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 more than fifty years, our students have engaged with their teachers and fellow students in the pursuit of a rich independent school education. Our faculty has graced their calling by bringing to our classrooms not only a commitment to teach, but also to strive for excellence.
Nansemond-Suffolk Academy is a place where every student has that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lay a foundation for lifelong learning. At Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, we are a close-knit community that is committed to providing a superior independent school experience in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. The trusting environment 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 of being a valued member of one of our athletic teams. A Nansemond-Suffolk Academy education is a holistic one; it is one with aspects that we deem essential so our students will be well prepared, not only for college, but also for the complexities of life beyond NSA. We warmly invite you to come visit us in person. Examine for yourself the combination of independence, trust and community that is unique to NSA.
