Faculty and Administration

Newark Academy’s faculty has an average of 22 years teaching experience, and 81% of the 72 teachers and administrators have advanced degrees; seven have earned doctorate degrees. All faculty members are experts in their fields. Teachers are available to meet regularly with their students, and the students thrive in this environment where collaboration is not only allowed for, but encouraged.

He previously served as resident director for School Year Abroad in Rennes, France. He earned an undergraduate degree in English and French from Georgetown University, and a master’s of philosophy in French studies from New York University.
