Inclusivity Matters

In collaboration with colleagues in the Office of Admission, the Director of Equity and Inclusion hosts an Inclusivity Matters event in the fall aimed at educating prospective parents and families on Newark Academy’s commitment to matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion. During this event, prospective members of the NA community have the opportunity to learn from the directors why inclusivity matters at Newark Academy and how it is practiced from our admission process to our curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular offerings.
 
If you are considering Newark Academy for the education of your child(ren), we hope that you will consider attending the next Inclusivity Matters event.

Parents and Families Affinity Groups

In collaboration with Newark Academy’s Parent Association (NAPA), the office of Equity and Inclusion supports the work of several parents and family affinity groups. Parents and family affinity groups aim to support inclusivity at Newark Academy by providing spaces and opportunities for members of our diverse community to self-identify, build community, and contribute to NA’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
