Since its founding in 1774, Newark Academy has provided students from many different neighborhoods and communities a welcoming atmosphere to gather, to grow, to learn. For most of our history, students from the City of Newark filled the halls of the Academy’s three campuses in Newark. When Newark Academy’s Board of Trustees made the decision to relocate the Academy to Livingston in 1964, there remained a shared sense of commitment to the City of Newark that went well beyond the name of the school.
Today, NA remains proud of its heritage and seeks to provide top students from our namesake city with the very best independent school education. Assisted by the generosity of a loyal alumnus, NA proudly established the Newark Scholars Program to provide full scholarships to students from Newark. In the fall of 2012, Newark Academy welcomed the program's first six Newark Scholars.
