Rise & Flourish: The Campaign for Newark Academy

We Finished With A Flourish!

Rise & Flourish: The Campaign for Newark Academy that began in May 2010 officially concluded on January 26, 2019 with a one-of-a-kind celebration called Finale with a Flourish. More than 250 members of the NA community, including students, faculty, alumni, parents - -both current and past, and Trustees joined the party to revel in the success of the largest fundraising effort in the Academy’s long history. Rise & Flourish was a long, shared journey encompassing 3,157 days, 772 donors and gifts totaling $41,522,562 between May 2010 and December 2019. Gifts to the campaign enabled NA to add more than 43,000 square feet of new spaces, to create the Newark Scholars Program and to increase the Newark Academy endowment by 33 percent. The Finale with a Flourish set the stage for NA to end this extraordinary effort in the same way it was begun -- with abiding gratitude for the community’s generosity and with the certain knowledge that Newark Academy will truly flourish for the next 50 years.

Coraci Performance Hall Meets Needs of Growing Community

From Morning Meeting to the final curtain of artistic performances, Newark Academy’s Rose Auditorium has been at the heart of the campus since 1964. Originally named in honor of former Chairman of the Newark Academy Board of Trustees Gary Rose and his wife Karen, the space underwent a complete transformation during the 2019-20 school year and opened in fall of 2020 as Coraci Performance Hall.This jewel of the campus can now accommodate 743 guests and features state-of-the-art acoustics and lighting, as well as a two-tiered production booth. The design and construction of the Coraci Performance Hall was made possible through gifts from more than 140 donors to Rise & Flourish: The Campaign for Newark Academy. This includes a gift of $1 million from the family of the late Anthony Coraci, father of NA alums Lara Coraci-Basile ‘88, Maria Coraci Sabando ‘86, and James Coraci ‘92 and grandfather of five Newark Academy young alumni and current students. Highlights of “The Coraci” include 5,712 square feet of audience space and 2,393 square feet of performance space (including stage and back-stage areas), a glass-fronted lobby, Kinetic Ovation Ceiling (sound) Clouds and absorptive fabric wrapped panels. More than 130 NA alumni and families are honored in the Coraci Performance Hall through a seat-naming gift program that helped to complete the project’s funding.
Reimagining rigor for students in grades 6-12
