Tho in years to come we’re severed, from that home we loved so well,
In our hearts the golden memories, of our youth will ever dwell,
So whene’er we see that banner, and we watch its folds unfurl,
We will cheer for Alma Mater – NFA – a priceless pearl.
– Alma Mater, Ruth E. Bogue, Class of 1916
On December 21, 1876, five NFA graduates convened the first meeting of the NFA Alumni Association to remain involved with and to support Norwich Free Academy. In 1877, George Ripley, Class of 1858, became the association’s first president. Since then, NFA alumni have remained connected, providing invaluable support to advance the mission of the NFA Foundation and Norwich Free Academy.
The NFA Foundation’s alumni relations program strives to create a strong alumni network through reunions, activities, communication, and opportunities to remain connected to Norwich Free Academy.
