    Completed recommendation forms from the applicant's current English, Math, and a teacher of choice are required.

Completed forms will be submitted directly to Newark Academy. If the applicant has the same teacher for both English and Math, the teacher must complete one form for each subject. Newark Academy recommends that families wait until December to ask teachers for recommendations so that they have the time to get to know the student.

    Parents/Guardians of prospective students must arrange for a copy of the applicant’s school transcripts to be sent to Newark Academy. This requires a parent/guardian to download, print, and sign the transcript release forms linked above and give them to the prospective student’s current or prior school. The current or prior school must have a release form before sending the student’s transcripts. Transcripts may only be sent to Newark Academy by the prospective student’s school and should include any standardized testing scores.

  • FINANCIAL AID (IF APPLICABLE)

    The Newark Academy financial aid program is designed to make a NA education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. Newark Academy is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.

    To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $55 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application for no additional charge. Simply use the dropdown menu in the application to select those schools. 

    The deadline for completing the financial aid application including relevant supplemental documents is January 9, 2023.  

    If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available as well as email support at support@claritytuition.com in both English and Spanish. The application itself is also fully translated into Spanish.
