Newark Academy is a coeducational day school that serves more than 660 students in grades 6 through 12 from more than 90 towns across New Jersey. Founded in 1774 in the city of Newark before moving to its present 68-acre location in Livingston, Newark Academy has earned its outstanding reputation for transforming the lives of students through its dynamic program and student-centered approach. 

EMBRACING A LOVE OF LEARNING 

Newark Academy students develop a true love of learning through innovative and engaging classroom experiences, while challenging themselves in the school’s signature immersive and global programs: International Baccalaureate®, June Term, Capstone Experiences and the Immersion Experience. 

A DIVERSE COMMUNITY OF CREATIVE AND CRITICAL THINKERS 

Newark Academy has a diverse population and fosters an inclusive learning community, with students of color making up more than 60 percent of the student body. The school allocates more than $3 million per year towards financial aid. Over the course of their Newark Academy careers, students develop a genuine sense of belonging, cultivated by deep and meaningful relationships with their teachers and peers. Newark Academy graduates possess the knowledge and skills to be leaders in their fields, their communities and the broader world. 

“In every part of the NA experience, students are encouraged to become creative and critical thinkers and empowered to explore diverse interests,” says Director of Admission Keith Fischer. “Our students often find their passion in more than just a single area, becoming highly accomplished scholars, artists and athletes.” 

CULTIVATING LEADERS IN ARTS AND ATHLETICS 

Newark Academy’s award-winning arts and athletics programs foster these passions while also helping students become better leaders and teammates. 

The school’s commitment to athletic excellence resulted in eight New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) state championships during the 2021-22 school year. Newark Academy recently debuted its state-of-the-art, 700- seat Coraci Performance Hall—a central hub for its many talented performing arts groups as well as regular gatherings for the tight-knit, NA community.
