Advance Credit Courses meet June 22 to July 31, four hours daily for a total of 120 hours and are for students seeking to further their academic studies in the summer. These courses are equivalent in rigor and content to full-year programs at Newark Academy. Students can take advance credit courses for enrichment, or with their school’s approval, transfer the course for credit at their respective schools. There are no classes on Friday, July 3.
Preview Courses are two-hour courses designed for students who want substantial exposure to courses they will take in the fall. Preview courses are offered in math and science, and allow students to consider taking another two-hour course in the summer session. They meet June 22 to July 31, two hours daily for a total of 60 hours. Students in preview courses will cover approximately half of the entire course material over a six-week period. Students who wish to preview a specific math subject for less than six weeks should enroll in the Math Clinic. There are no classes on Friday, July 3.
Enrichment Courses for older students, such as writing and literature workshops, are offered June 22 to July 31, two hours daily for a total of 60 hours. Enrichment courses for younger students focus on developmental work in the critical areas of reading, English, math, science and study skills.
