Since its founding in 1774, Newark Academy has provided students from across the region with a welcoming atmosphere in which to grow and learn. For most of our history, while NA inhabited our first three campuses in Newark, students from the city filled our halls and classrooms. Even after 1964, when Newark Academy’s Board of Trustees made the decision to relocate the Academy to Livingston, NA has maintained a relationship with Newark that goes well beyond the name of our school.
Today, NA remains proud of its historical ties to Newark and seeks to provide talented students from our namesake city with the very best independent school education. Thanks to the generosity of a loyal alumnus, NA established the Newark Scholars Program in 2012 to provide full scholarships to up to six students each year who live in or attend school in Newark. Students who are designated as Newark Scholars receive the full cost of tuition, fees, books, transportation, equipment, required field trips/immersion and summer enrichment. The Cooperman Family designates one student in the Newark Scholars Program as the recipient of the Cooperman Family Scholarship.
Prospective students, applying for grades 6-9 interested in being considered for the Newark Scholars program must be admitted to Newark Academy through the application process, complete a separate Newark Scholars application addendum
and qualify for financial aid.
