Parent Support

Parent gifts to the Annual Fund have a meaningful impact on your child every day. They provide resources for the difference-making features that made your family choose NA: the people, the programs, and the places on campus.

“I have such vivid memories of my own experience as a student at Newark Academy. I loved all of my teachers and because of them, my transition to Georgetown was seamless. College was no more challenging than high school!

I also loved that NA was a place where I was able to step on to the lacrosse field, never having picked up a stick, and find that I was surrounded by support. My teammates and coaches were so encouraging…they made me feel like I could actually play!

The campus, too, was a perfect blend of relaxed courtyards for hanging out with friends and academic spaces that fostered strong relationships between teachers and their students encouraged intellectual growth and accomplishment.

My husband (also an NA grad!) and I wanted all of that for our own children. That’s why they’re here today and that’s why we choose to support the Annual Fund each year. We know that the Annual Fund provides crucial support for the people, the programs and the places on campus that make all the difference in the educational experience our kids are receiving every day. We hope that other parents will join us in giving annually to NA in as generous a capacity as is right for their family – it provides the resources that make this great education…an NA education.“
