Dear Families, 

Welcome to our Summer Program. 

For more than 50 years, Newark Academy has provided exceptional academic and enrichment programs for young people. We are proud to offer over 250 classes, camps and activities for students entering Kindergarten to Grade 12. The expertise of our faculty and the flexibility to design the program that meets your child’s needs and your family’s schedule are the hallmarks of our program.

This year we are excited to announce the addition of three new summer programs for our families:

Newark Academy Athletic Camps - taking advantage of our exceptional athletic facilities and led by Newark Academy coaches, these camps are week-long offerings designed to welcome athletes onto our campus. You can review the schedule and read more about the options here.

Extended Day - to better serve the needs of our families, we are introducing an option for Extended Day supervision from 3pm - 5pm. Here, students in Grades 3-11 will have options for quiet time, and indoor and outdoor games and activities. This choice will appear under the supervision tab when completing enrollments.

JTole Summer Jazz Camp- The JTole Summer Jazz Camp is a one-of-a-kind experience for students in 6th grade to 12th grade who want to study jazz or start playing jazz. More information about this program is available here. 
 
We have also updated our library supervision policy. Families can enroll their child directly in the library option based on individual scheduling needs. To ensure the safety and security of our community, all students must be enrolled in a class or activity while they are on campus.

We are committed to meet the needs of our families and proud that our program has continued to grow and flourish each summer. We welcomed more than 1,400 students safely onto our campus last summer and anticipate doing so again for this coming year. We invite you to be a part of the growing Newark Academy summer community.

If you have any questions, please view our list of frequently asked questions and general information.

Warm Regards,
