Norfolk Collegiate students display the Best Of sign after the school was voted Best Private School in The Virginian-Pilot's contest. The students are also the creative genus behind award-winning student publications, such as Horizons Literary Magazine.


Norfolk Collegiate and our students produce several publications throughout the year, including student-produced literary magazines, informational booklets for parents and students and more. Below are some of the publications:

Strategic vision

During the 2015-16 academic year, Norfolk Collegiate's community engaged in a strategic planning process focused on our collective aspirations for our students and school. This is our shared vision for Norfolk Collegiate’s future. It includes six strategic imperatives that are focused on the instructional program and our commitment to learning that gives students the opportunity to delve deeply into topics they are studying, to make meaningful real-world connections and to grow personally in an inclusive community. The remaining imperatives are related to the administrative and operational support necessary for the full realization of our exceptional Norfolk Collegiate experience.

The Collegiate

It recognizes gifts made to the school between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2017, as well as the accomplishments of our students and school. The report summarizes giving to the Annual Fund, capital campaign and endowment funds by parents, grandparents and friends. It also highlights special event activities and developments made possible through the generous donors in the Norfolk Collegiate community.
