Click to SUMMER SESSION-ACADEMICS

The highly respected Summer Session provides students with an unparalleled summer academic experience including advanced credit, enrichment and skill development courses. The strength of NA’s Summer Session is a talented faculty, committed to helping students develop a passion for learning.

Click to SPECIALIZED WORKSHOPS
 
Specialized workshops, taught primarily by Newark Academy faculty, offer students a variety of opportunities to expand their intellectual and artistic horizons. These workshops allow students to step outside traditional academic coursework to discover and deepen new skills and passions. There are no prerequisites for the specialized workshop courses.

Click to SUMMER SPORTS CAMPS

Home of the renowned Mott-Leeney Baseball Camp, Newark Academy brings together state-of-the-art athletic facilities and experienced, dedicated coaches to provide young athletes with an array of experiences from skill acquisition to championship-level team play. 


The Schedule – Flexible, By Design

 
Newark Academy’s summer programming is designed to meet a wide-range of needs – from a single course to a full day of academics, arts and sports. Many Summer Session (academic) courses run the full six-week period, while enrichment courses and NA Summer Sports offer shorter programs.
