Connecting modern tools with timeless principles

At Newark Academy, we are delighted when technology simplifies a task, makes a process more efficient, or empowers us to accomplish what is otherwise unimaginable. With technology, we can work faster, see things in a new way, and tap into an immense knowledge base. At the same time, we view technology as a tool—and not an end unto itself. We embrace new tools because they enhance our ability to reach timeless goals of collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
