NFA Red & White

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 successful and effective story teller.  They also develop editing skills, using industry-quality Mac computers.  Currently the students use Final Cut X as the editing program.

Throughout the thirty years of the program’s existence, Journalism students have won awards from the New England Scholastic Press Association, Fox61 Student News, Manchester Community College Film Festival, Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Foundation of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

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