Founded in Newark by Alexander Macwhorter, a leading New Jersey cleric and advisor to George Washington, Newark Academy closed during the Revolution and reopened in newly built quarters in 1792. The school opened a separate division for girls in 1802, but the program was discontinued in 1859. In 1964, the academy moved from Newark to Livingston, and it became fully coeducational in 1971. Qualified students at the academy may elect to work towards the IB Diploma or choose a sampling of individual IB courses. Each department offers Advanced Placement courses, and all seniors choose and work on independent projects during the month of May. From middle school through upper school, all pupils take classes in the arts. In addition, participation in community service is a graduation requirement: Students in grades 9-12 perform a minimum of 10 hours of service annually, and the academy encourages boys and girls to donate additional hours.
