Our Philosophy

The athletic program at Newark Academy seeks to nurture a community of scholar athletes who view their athletic pursuits as the perfect complement to their academic curriculum. The program utilizes the athletic field as a laboratory in which leadership skills, resilience, and trust are refined. Minutemen athletics is about more than win-loss records and personal statistics, it is about instilling a lifelong love of healthy competition and sharpening athletic skills through expert coaching in state-of-the-art facilities.

Ted Gilbreath, Director of Athletics

Athletics are a vital part of the Newark Academy experience. Through the decades, Minuteman teams have enjoyed success at every level and NA student-athletes have achieved remarkable distinctions. Yet scores and trophies only tell part of the story. It is in the striving, the improving, the camaraderie and the challenges that NA student-athletes come to define excellence for themselves."
