The information presented on this page applies to the 2017 season. Please visit the website in December 2017 for Summer 2018 updates.

Summer Session Enrollment
Students enroll by completing the application and medical form and forwarding them to Newark Academy Summer Session. Students should enroll for the grade level that they will enter in the fall of 2017.  Enrollment is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Students may enroll any time before or after the May 1 tuition deadline, providing the requested class is open. See tuition information below.
Tuition and Fees
The tuition for each course is listed in the course description. There is a separate enrollment fee of $50, which should be mailed with the summer session application to Newark Academy Summer Session. The tuition balance is due by May 1 and can be paid by check, cash or money order. If a student has an unpaid tuition balance after May 1, his/her place in the class may be forfeited. Students can still enroll in classes after the May 1 tuition deadline but must pay the application fee and full tuition at that time. Students may be required to purchase a textbook or other instructional materials. The cost for books ranges from $25 to $150 and can be paid by check, cash or money order at registration.
Registration will take place on Saturday, June 24, from 8:00 am until 11:00 am in the Wrightson Gymnasium.
At Registration, students will pick up their schedules and purchase their books. The school building is open for students to locate their classrooms. Students whose program begins Monday, June 26 must attend Registration. Students whose program begins after June 26 can register and purchase their books on the day that their classes begin.

The $50 enrollment fee is non-refundable. Additionally, as commitments to faculty and staff are made in advance of the start of Summer Session, the following guidelines will apply:
  • A student who withdraws from a class between May 1 and May 31 will be assessed an additional $200 fee. 
  • A student who withdraws from a course between June 1 and June 24 will be assessed 75% of the tuition.
  • No refunds will be granted after June 24.

  • Class Schedule

    Classes meet each day, Monday through Friday. Dates and meeting times for all classes are listed in the course descriptions. Advance credit courses, preview courses, and writing and literature courses meet June 26 – August 4. Students may enroll in Arts Experience, STEAM, Sports Experience, Enrichment courses and Jump Start for the full six weeks or select a three-week enrollment only. Specialized Workshops are one- and two-week workshops and run only once during the summer. There are no classes scheduled on July 4.
  • Final Exams

    All students enrolled in an advanced credit class are required to take a final exam. A student will not be issued a final grade if he or she does not take the final exam in a 120-hour course.
  • Absences

    Parents should notify the office if their child will be absent from class. Although missing any class time puts students at a distinct disadvantage in an accelerated course, students taking advance credit courses are permitted two absences or a total of eight hours of class time. Students who miss more than eight hours of class time will not be eligible to have a transcript sent from Newark Academy. If they are absent, students enrolled in advanced credit courses are responsible for making up the material and the work that was covered during their absence.  Student absences are reported to parents via email.  A valid email address is required on the application.
  • Electronic Devices

    The use of cell phones and text messaging by students is restricted to times when students are not in class. If a cell phone goes off in class, a teacher will take the phone and bring it to the office. Personal computers may be required for class use and should be used only for school-related work. Students are not allowed to play games or watch movies on their computers at Newark Academy. The use of mobile devices during a class is not allowed without expressed permission of the classroom teacher.  Guest Wifi usage is available for students.

  • Students on Campus

    Students will not be permitted in the school building prior to 7:30 am. Please do not drop your child off at the school prior to 7:30 a.m., as there will not be proper adult supervision until that time. Please note that students enrolled in our Jump Start program must be walked into their classroom. All students must depart campus within thirty minutes of completing their final enrolled class. No students are allowed in the building after 3:00 p.m. unless they are enrolled in a Specialized Workshop.
  • Academic Integrity

    Newark Academy strives to develop critical thinking and analytical writing skills throughout its curricula. Consequently, when a student signs his or her name to an assignment or assessment, the expectation and the understanding is that all work submitted is original or that the source from which the ideas or text have been taken is clearly identified. A student involved in an incident of academic dishonesty may be dismissed from summer session.
