Advantage #1 of a Newark Academy Education: Intellectual Power / Intellectual Play: Just as physical activity strengthens the body, academics at Newark Academy are designed to build intellectual power. Our students do this through gaining an understanding of foundational content and acquiring the skills needed to apply that content to the world around them. When intellectual power comes together with intellectual play, here are some of the things you can expect to see… Sixth-graders learning about environmental science by building a sustainable house on campus. Upper School students using physics to build their own boats for an indoor regatta. Works reviewed in an English course inspiring students to their works in a schoolwide blog. Faculty members joining in student-athletes’ celebration after a championship win. Student-artists from all grade levels and abilities coming together each year to stage an all-school musical. The Newark Academy advantage means our students grow to love learning and value how and what they think.

Middle School students had a blast participating in the Annual Middle School Halloween Parade this morning!
William Corprew ’20 and Sophia Ludtke ’20 won the Law Day 2018 Competition held by the Association of Black Women Lawyers of New Jersey. The theme was Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom and Sophia and William focused on the case of Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer. William won the poster award for demonstration while Sophia won the essay award. Both students did the assignment for Benson Hawk’s AP US History class last year and were encouraged to submit their work, resulting in an award in the late summer. “The most difficult thing was trying to find a concept because a poster board is usually very straightforward, but I wanted to do something that was unique to me,” William said. He took newspapers clippings and made it “pop out” with a welding mask. Sophia wrote an essay thinking about the case and its broader implications.
