Minutemen in College

Taking it to the Next Level

Newark Academy student-athletes abound in all levels of the college ranks, thanks to our school’s reputation for academic and athletic excellence. Typically, an NA graduating class will include between six and 12 student-athletes who are recruited to play for their college or university. Minuteman coaches and athletic administrators work closely with Upper School academic leaders and the College Counseling staff to support student-athletes who are interested in playing at the next level.
