Founded in 1920 by the Sisters of St. Joseph, Norwood-Fontbonne Academy is a Catholic independent academy for preschool to eighth grade students. Committed to a strong academic program, Norwood-Fontbonne Academy offers both Montessori and creative interactive education enriched by service learning, outreach, and co-curricular experiences. Within a faith-filled community, students are challenged to become self-directed persons who live gospel values, enjoy learning, make reflective choices, and treasure themselves, others, and the Earth.

The Norwood-Fontbonne student is one who…
enjoys learning, treasures self, others and the earth,
lives Gospel values, and
makes reflective choices as a self-directed person.
