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 to Norwich Free Academy, providing invaluable support for the institutional mission.
The NFA Foundation’s alumni relations activities, supported by the outreach and programs of the Alumni Association, aim to create a strong alumni network through reunions, activities, communication and opportunities to remain connected to Norwich Free Academy.
