Students on Campus Students will not be permitted in the school building prior to 7:15 am. Please do not drop your child off at the school prior to 7:15 am, as there will not be proper adult supervision until that time. Please note that students enrolled in our Jump Start program must be walked into their classroom. All students must depart campus within 30 minutes of completing their final enrolled class. No students are allowed in the building after 3:00 pm unless they are enrolled in a specialized workshop. Specific details about student conduct on campus are available in the General Information section of this brochure.

Absences Parents should notify the office if their child will be absent from class. Although missing any class time puts students at a distinct disadvantage in an accelerated course, students

taking advance credit courses are permitted two absences or a total of eight hours of class time. Students with excessive absences will not be eligible to have a transcript sent from Newark Academy. If they are absent, students enrolled in advance credit courses are responsible for making up the material and the work that was covered during their absence.

Academic Integrity Newark Academy strives to develop critical thinking and analytical writing skills throughout its curricula. Consequently, when a student signs his or her name to an assignment or assessment, the expectation and the understanding is that all work submitted is original or that the source from which the ideas or text have been taken is clearly identified. A student involved in an incident of academic dishonesty may be dismissed from Summer Session.

Final Exams All students enrolled in an advance credit class are required to take a final exam. A student will not be issued a final grade if he or she does not take the final exam in a 120-hour course.

Electronic Devices The use of cell phones and text messaging by students is restricted to the outdoors. If a cell phone goes off in class, a teacher will take the phone and bring it to the office. Personal computers may be used only for school-related work. Students are not allowed to play games or watch movies on their computers at Newark Academy. The use of mobile devices during a class is not allowed without expressed permission of the classroom teacher.

In a society marked by economic instability, citizens often focus on the study of education in math and science rather than the liberal arts. In this course, we will talk about the critical role that studying philosophy can play in the development of ethically-minded critical thinkers. We will also survey five major areas of philosophy – Ontology (What exists?), Epistemology (What can we know?), Ethics (How should we behave?), Aesthetics (What is beautiful?), and Existentialism (What is life’s meaning?). Important thinkers in each of these categories will provide readings for consideration.

In this seminar, students will receive training in critical thinking, dialectic, listening, and the art of inquiry as they practice Socratic-style learning. The catalysts for most lessons will be excerpts from the “great” philosophical books of the Western and Eastern canon. Before they know it, students will be engaged in conversation with others like Plato, Confucius, Lao Tzu, Descartes, Euclid, and Einstein in the enduring quest for understanding life’s big questions.

History The Mott-Leeney Baseball Camp, celebrating its 45th year, is the flagship summer sports camp program at Newark Academy. This camp has provided outstanding instruction to young campers since 1968. Camp founders Jack Mott and Fred Leeney taught the game of baseball to thousands of boys and girls throughout their long and distinguished careers. They

believed in keeping the “fun” in fundamentals when teaching the game to young people. The staff of the Mott-Leeney Baseball Camp is dedicated to sustaining this wonderful tradition as a legacy to Jack and Fred and to their love for the game. To recognize a camper who embodies the spirit of Mott-Leeney baseball, the Harry Shatel Will to Win Award is presented to one camper in each session. The award, given in memory of Harry Shatel, the beloved former director of baseball operations, is given to the camper who projects the same attitude and desire to win that Coach Shatel manifested in his illustrious coaching career.
