The Newark Academy Summer Program offers students an excellent and engaging experience in the classroom and on the field.  The Summer Program runs over six weeks, from June 24 through August 2, 2019. Students entering grades 1 - 12 can build their summer program from a wide range of courses, camps, dates and times.


The highly respected Summer Session provides students with an unparalleled summer academic experience including advanced credit, enrichment and skill development courses. The strength of Newark Academy’s Summer Session is a talented faculty who are committed to helping students develop a passion for learning.

Student-athletes can choose from eight different sports camps, including the renowned Mott-Leeney Baseball Camp, where participants will sharpen their skills and experience championship-level team play. Newark Academy offers state-of-the-art athletic facilities led by experienced, dedicated coaches to prepare students for their upcoming seasons.

General Information about Summer Programs

List of 7 items.

  • Accreditation

    Newark Academy is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools.
  • Campus Visitors

    Newark Academy provides a safe environment that promotes opportunities for student growth. Parents and all other visitors to our campus must enter through the front entrance to the building and report directly to the receptionist in the main lobby to receive a daily visitor’s pass. This pass must be worn at all times. If a parent or guardian needs to contact a child during his/her program, please see the Summer Session staff or the Sports Camps staff. Parents may not disturb or interrupt classes or camp sessions. Teachers and counselors may not release a child early from a class or activity without clearance from the appropriate summer program office.
  • Food Service

    Before and after classes, students are welcomed into the Newark Academy Dining Room for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. The dining room is open from 7:30 am to 2:00 pm. By placing pre-orders and prepaying each morning, students will have more time to enjoy lunch. We encourage students to pre-order and pre-pay for their lunch in the Dining Room, each morning as they arrive.  Pre-orders for each day must be completed by 10:00 am.  This gives students an opportunity to make special requests and pick up their pre-ordered selections at lunch, without waiting.  (Summer Session 2018 Menu)
