COVID-19 and Summer Session

Newark Academy Summer Session will continue our virtual program through the duration of the session which concludes on August 7th!
 
While we had hoped to be able to run our on-campus academic programs from July 20- August 7, it has become evident that we will not be able to proceed with most of our academic programming on campus due to continuing public health challenges arising from covid-19. Classes will continue on our remote platforms. We must prioritize safety and health in making this decision.
 
We will continue to offer our Jump Start Program for grades 1 and 2, Mott Leeney Baseball Camp for grades 1-8, and NA-X Sports Camps for grades 3-8, on campus. Jump Start will also have a virtual option.

Please view available classes and programs by creating an account on CampBrain, our online registration portal.

Please feel free to contact us at any time at summer@newarka.edu if you have any questions.
 
Be safe and well.
