Student Life

Community Service

The Community Service program at Newark Academy focuses are three primary goals for our students:

  • to build a lifelong passion for service and a generosity of spirit
  • to use service as a springboard for self-awareness and self-actualization
  • to integrate service as a learning opportunity in the holistic education 

NA’s Community Service program is guided by students and faculty who serve on the Community Service Council <embed link to L3 page>. Throughout the school year, the Community Service Council sponsors a wide variety of service opportunities in conjunction with other Newark Academy clubs, classes, and School Councils (Middle School and Upper School).  

Students are also encouraged to pursue opportunities for service in their own communities, in areas of their particular interest and with a focus on how to best use their time, talent, and resources to serve members of local and global constituencies in need.
