Affording a Newark Academy Education

Newark Academy (NA) seeks to attract a diverse and talented student body. To achieve this, we are committed to making the NA education accessible to mission-appropriate students regardless of financial limitations. As such, NA maintains a considerable financial assistance program to ensure that the most qualified candidates have the opportunity to attend NA regardless of financial circumstances. 
Financial awards are grant awards and do not need to be repaid. Applying for financial assistance has no bearing on the Admission Committee’s deliberations and its assessment of an applicant’s potential as an NA student.
