Norman Albright (born c. 1921 in Birmingham; died April 10, 2010 in Decatur, Morgan County) was an attorney and founder of Albright Business College in Decatur.

Albright attended the University of Alabama and played on the Alabama Crimson Tide football team before entering the army for World War II. He returned to Tuscaloosa afterwards and graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law.

During the Korean War Albright served as an Air Force judge advocate. He moved to Decatur in 1951 to teach at a small business college, and bought the school a year later for $2,500. In 1960 he renamed it the Albright Business College and served as its director until selling it in 1977. He also owned the ABC Kindergarten from 1962 to 1978.

Albright's lifelong interest in athletics kept him working as a football official. He served as secretary for the Alabama High School Athletic Association and founded the Decatur Football Officials Association.
