Academics

The Nora School is informal, but not unstructured. Our academic program is challenging — and it’s balanced with the arts, community service, and sports — so our days are very busy. We encourage students to think for themselves, and respect is a key value of our community.

Classes are small — eight students, on average — and engaging. Students know teachers on a first-name basis, and this contributes to an atmosphere of mutual respect. Students learn to take themselves and their ideas seriously, to speak their minds, to form well-reasoned opinions, and to defend them. Everyone takes classes in English, social studies, mathematics, science, and foreign language, and chooses from a range of electives.

Life at Nora is organized so that students spend almost every hour involved in learning of one kind or another. As a result, our graduates continue on to colleges and universities throughout the nation.

Accreditation
The Nora School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. We were first accredited in 1992 and are now in the midst of our fourth re-accreditation process.
