Naf Network
A dynamic partnership between the education and business worlds

NAF academies are designed as small learning communities within larger schools or as stand-alone public high schools. They operate primarily in urban public school districts, and also thrive in many suburban and rural areas.


    NAF network members are bringing the classroom to the workplace and the workplace to the classroom, helping underserved students prepare for careers with rising incomes.


    We believe every single high school in our country should be preparing students for their future careers. When you work with NAF, the possibilities for your school district—and your students—are endless.


    Across the country, education and business leaders expand the boundaries of the classroom.


    Distinguished academies demonstrate exceptional fidelity to an educational design that prepares students for college, career, and future success.
