Why Give to NA

For more than 200 years, the Newark Academy community—generations of parents and grandparents, alumni and friends—have made generous gifts of monetary support to Newark Academy. These contributions, regardless of amount, sustained NA’s enduring mission to shape vigorous, compassionate, curious learners in a life-long community.  

Making a financial gift ensures that the Newark Academy community will continue to move steadily forward – challenging each new generation of students by providing outstanding faculty to guide them, innovative programs to engage them, state-of-the-art facilities to shape them,  and tuition assistance to make an NA education affordable. And NA doesn’t stop serving its students at graduation, instead offering an array of services to our more than 5,000 alumni worldwide. Throughout the centuries, Newark Academy has sustained educational excellence and a supportive community, which are made possible by the support of our loyal donors. 

For all those from generations past who demonstrated the generosity of spirit that is a hallmark of NA, we thank you. For those who benefit mightily from today’s Newark Academy, we welcome you and thank you, in advance, for your support to this historic, dynamic and unique community.
