North Albion Collegiate Institute (NACI) earned a reputation for academic and athletic excellence from the time of its inception through the 1980s. In recent years, discipline has improved and, as a result the post-secondary success rate has been rising dramatically. From 2000 to 2004, the graduation rate rose to 40%. In 2006 the school was placed among the top 25 of the Ontario Grade 10 literacy test. It is placed above other local schools such as West Humber Collegiate Institute, Thistletown Collegiate Institute, and Martingrove Collegiate Institute, as a school known for reasonable excellence in Academics.
Community involvement is shown by the Institute's contributions through the Student Government, Parent Council, Leadership Club, Breakfast Club, the United Way Committee, the Duke of Edinburgh Club, World Vision Volunteers, Crime Stoppers, and by its participating in community beautification days. An integral part of N.A.C.I. is the multi-grade, whole school Teacher Advisor Program that meets regularly
Its feeder schools include North Kipling Junior Middle School.
North Albion became the first school in North America to offer Steel band as a full credit course in high school.
In 1962 the Hon. J. Keiller MacKay opened the school officially and gave North Albion its motto: VIRTUS, OFFICIUM, VERITAS - Excellence, Service, Truth. The Olympian torch and the book below the motto on the crest signify the struggle for the light of knowledge. The trees are for growth. We chose the mountain ash for its white flowers and orange berries. The triangle in the centre is a blue spruce to give us the school colours of ORANGE, BLUE AND WHITE.
