Newark Academy welcomes more than 1,500 students to its campus throughout the summer months. Management of traffic during the drop-off and pick-up times is heavy. We encourage students and families to car-pool, whenever possible. A list of families interested in forming car-pools for summer session will be available, upon request, after May 15. Summer Session students and Sports Camp students who wish to be placed on a carpool list must complete and submit the Hold Harmless Agreement Form when they enroll. Parking is not allowed in the Newark Academy driveway.
Before and after classes, students are welcomed into the Newark Academy Dining Room for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. The dining room is open from 7:30 am to 2:00 pm. By placing pre-orders and prepaying each morning, students will have more time to enjoy lunch. We encourage students to pre-order and pre-pay for their lunch in the Dining Room, each morning as they arrive. Pre-orders for each day must be completed by 10:00 am. This gives students an opportunity to make special requests and pick up their pre-ordered selections at lunch, without waiting. (Summer Session 2016 Menu)
