Diversity at Newark Academy
Newark Academy welcomes and celebrates diversity and brings individuals together in an atmosphere where all are valued. We like to say that we have many voices but one purpose. Together, we learn and grow not just as students and faculty but as citizens of the world, acknowledging, embracing, discussing and respecting our differences.
Equity and Inclusion Team
The mission of Newark Academy’s Equity and Inclusion Team is to promote diversity, equity and justice throughout the school community. The team is comprised of student and faculty representatives in both Middle and Upper Schools who work to create new programs and expand existing ones in conjunction with the Academy’s strategic diversity initiatives.
The NA faculty and student body engage in initiatives that invite action and dialogue to promote diversity, inclusion and deeper understanding of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and socioeconomic status. The Academy empowers students to take an active role in this work. Below are some of the clubs that have been working hard to move the conversation forward and to educate the community.
