Newark Academy is a 6-12 independent school situated on 64 acres in Livingston, NJ. Since 1774, our enduring purpose has been to help students create fulfilling lives through intellectual strength and personal integrity from a rigorous program of academics, arts, and athletics. Each century has seen the pursuit of that purpose take different forms, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. Newark Academy was the first school in New Jersey authorized to offer (IB) Program.
Newark Academy’s students come from more than 90 communities in New Jersey, with students of color representing more than 55% of the population. We strive to equip our students with intellectual agility, global perspectives, essential skills, and the enthusiasm for life-long learning they need to successfully navigate the rapidly changing world.
Newark Academy faculty continuously recognize our students as uniquely promising individuals and inherently valuable people. We work to ensure that every child feels valued and validated, thereby inspiring integrity and reimagining the rigor that is a hallmark of a Newark Academy education.
Newark Academy offers families a profoundly optimistic, dynamically diverse atmosphere where we nurture by attracting active, intelligent young people.
