  • TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS

    Recommendations from three current teachers are required as part of the supplemental information for admission consideration. Recommendations are sent to Newark Academy directly from the recommending teachers through NA’s online admission portal.  Recommendations by the prospective student’s current English and Math teachers are required. The third recommendation should be from a teacher of the prospective student’s choice. If the prospective student 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 about requesting recommendations so that they have the time to get to know your child.
  • SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT

    2021-2022 First Marking Period Transcript due January 13, 2022

    Parents/Guardians of prospective students must arrange for a copy of the prospective student’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. Please note the deadlines for submission of transcripts above.
  • ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT TESTING

    Due: Scores must be submitted prior to January 13, 2022

    We require that all prospective students take an entrance assessment test as part of the application process. The test should be administered during the academic year in which the application is made. Newark Academy accepts either of two entrance assessment tests – the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) or the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT). There is no need for an applicant to take both of these tests. The ISEE and SSAT require advance registration, so please plan ahead. Both testing organizations assign a School Code to Newark Academy that you will be asked to include during registration. Those codes are as follows:

    ISEE School Code: 310915
    SSAT School Code: 5296

    We are pleased to announce that Newark Academy will be offering both the SSAT and ISEE on campus in Winter 2021. Registration can be made through ISEE and SSAT:

    Saturday December 4: Register for the ISEE
    Saturday December 11: Register for the SSAT
