As Philadelphia’s oldest Catholic and independent elementary school, and a National Blue Ribbon School, Norwood-Fontbonne Academy offers close to 100 years of proven excellence in developing students for future leadership, scholarship and service to others. As you explore our program and those of other area schools, we invite you to learn about what makes NFA unique so that you can get a true sense of why NFA stands out among our peers.

We are eager to help you envision your child learning in our classrooms and your family enjoying our school community. Our Early Education Information Nights will give you detailed information on our dual-path curriculum in early education that offers families a unique choice between our Montessori and Primary programs. An onsite daytime visit, whether as part of our Open Houses or a personal tour, will let you see our school and students in action. Seeing our children and staff living the NFA vision and mission offers the best testimonial to our commitment to the formation of every child. We look forward to welcoming you to NFA!

For more information or to schedule a private tour of the school, please feel free to email me at,  or call 215-247-3811, ext. 204.
