What is NFA Journalism?

The Norwich Free Academy journalism program started in the 1994-1995 school year.  The students in the program have consistently written for the school newspaper, The Red and White and produced video news for the student television news show.  As mainstream journalism has evolved so has the NFA program.  Students now learn how to become multi-media journalists.  Through the curriculum students write for the online student newspaper, take photos, and produce videos to go along with their stories.

The students learn how to communicate with others through interviews, how to organize their projects, and how to be a story teller in order for them to be successful.  They also develop editing skills on the twenty-four MAC computer lab.  Currently the students use Final Cut X as the editing program.

Throughout the nineteen years journalism students have won awards from New England Scholastic Press Association, CT FOX Student News, Manchester Community College Film Festival, Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Foundation of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

Journalism students who have graduated from NFA and pursued communications or journalism in college are currently working in the field in some capacity.
