General Information

Athletics are a vital part of the Newark Academy experience. Through the decades, Minuteman teams have enjoyed success at every level and NA student-athletes have achieved remarkable distinctions – from a spot on the 2010 U.S. Women’s Soccer team to Davis Cup selections and the Olympics. Yet scores and trophies only tell part of the story. It is in the striving, the improving, the camaraderie and the challenges that NA student-athletes come to define excellence for themselves.
