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

NAF academies can take the form of small learning communities within larger schools or a high school may choose to implement the educational design as a school-wide strategy. While they operate primarily in urban public school districts, they also thrive in many suburban and rural areas. With the support of thousands of education, business, and community leaders, NAF academies are able to grow and students are introduced to a new world of possibility.
