one Intellectual Power, Intellectual Play At Newark Academy, the emphasis is
on thinking—and enjoying the process of thinking. NA’s rigorous curriculum includes the internationally recognized IB (International Baccalaureate) and nationally recognized AP (Advanced Placement) programs as well as a breadth of courses that enables NA’s intellectual focus to be adjusted to bright students with different needs and interests. A generous dose of humor lets students have the time of their life while exploring the life of the mind.
two Global Thinking, 360Â° Perspective NA encourages students to
look out at the world and to begin to see their place in it. Many programs and events explore international themes. Others examine subjects closer to home while taking students outside their comfort zones. A student body of diverse cultural backgrounds and an emphasis on approaching topics from multiple angles ensure that though students bring many different perspectives, they gain even more.
three Each Valued, All Celebrated Newark Academy welcomes and fosters individuality while bringing individuals together in an open-minded, inclusive community. Friendships donâ€™t cross lines based on age or background or interest because those lines donâ€™t exist. Instead, students of different races and religions, with different personalities and passions, find success at NA because they all are NA.
four Trust Given, Respect Returned Respect is the cornerstone of the Newark Academy experience. From daily teacher-student
interactions to the honor code, respectâ€”and the trust that resultsâ€”is woven into the NA fabric. Students absorb and appreciate this community ethos and are proud of the independence they are given. Just as they develop into independent thinkers, so do they learn to make sound, independent choices, preparing them for the greater independence that lies ahead.
five Inspiring Teachers, Memorable Mentors
Newark Academy faculty members are extraordinary, not only because of their extensive teaching experience and education, but also because of their ability to connect with students. With great knowledge of and enthusiasm for their subjects, teachers inspire students, enlisting them as partners in the learning process. That partnership extends beyond class, too, leading NA students to view their teachers as educators, mentors, and friends.
