Leading & Joining: An Activity for Every Interest

Newark Academy students are serious about their studies. But at NA, the joy of learning, growing, and pursuing personal interests isn’t just academic. With more than 60 available clubs and activities, our students are certain to find something to be passionate about outside the classroom.

Upper School students create and run their own clubs and activities, with the assistance of faculty advisors, and almost every student is involved in at least one of them. In the process, they develop leadership skills while enjoying an activity that’s personally meaningful. Clubs and activities allow NA students to create community by connecting and collaborating with schoolmates who share their interests.
