Managing Costs Beyond Tuition

Newark Academy makes every effort to minimize costs beyond tuition and fees for our students and families. All costs related to the required course curriculum are covered by tuition and fees. However, a student’s extra-curricular activities may require additional costs that are paid by families.

NA designates a limited pool of funds to assist students/families receiving financial aid with costs beyond tuition and fees. If available, this assistance is provided at the same rate (percentage of need) that governs the student’s financial aid award. Examples of costs beyond tuition and fees are costs for:
  • club, activity or team trips (both day and overnight)
  • instruments, equipment and supplies for activities
  • fees for standardized exams (PSAT, AP and IB exams)

The single largest cost beyond tuition and fees is for door-to-door transportation for those students living in one of the 90 communities served by Newark Academy bus service. Transportation is provided without cost for Newark Academy students living in Newark, Irvington, Orange, East Orange and Hillside, which is subject to change based on student population.

Transportation to many other towns is available through Newark Academy's transportation partner of choice and individual transportation contracts can range from $4,000-$7,000. Parents who choose to send their child to Newark Academy may be eligible to receive a partial reimbursement of up to $1,000 from their resident school district to cover part of the cost of providing their own transportation to school (visit here to learn more).
