Year of Planning

Prepare for your Year of Planning (YOP) journey—an essential step toward launching a NAF academy! The YOP program is self-paced and flexible, allowing customization to accommodate your school's specific needs and timeline. Here's what to expect:

  • Receive personalized support and guidance from NAF portfolio managers and supporting staff. They will help you align your local programming goals with NAF's Design before the academy's launch.

  • Utilize the YOP Guide, a comprehensive resource that outlines the admissions program and provides resources, activities, and guiding questions to shape your academy's vision. The guide streamlines the planning process and ensures the timely completion of the Academy Design Plan.
