Newark Academy is a 6-12 independent school situated on 64 acres in Livingston, New Jersey. The diverse independent school culture includes students from 85 communities and 15 countries. Founded in 1774, it is the second oldest day school in the state and one of a handful of
pre-Revolutionary schools still operating in the U.S. Newark Academy offers students of strong academic ability and sound character an
exceptional college-preparatory program. Accomplished faculty aim to create an environment that encourages an active, engaged learning
experience for all students. This includes the option of the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Program. Newark Academy was the first
IB school in New Jersey, and continues to graduate the state's greatest number of diploma recipients.
With the support and instruction of a dedicated faculty, students explore appropriate modes of observation and expression, both competing and cooperating in gradually developing their individual points of view. Academy students find and refine their "voices" during their years here. The small size of our community and of our classes ensure that each student is known and that all people are appreciated for that complex blend of culture, talent, nationality, gender, experiences, race and disposition.
Newark Academy offers families a profoundly optimistic, dynamically diverse atmosphere where we nurture by attracting active, intelligent young people. We invite you to visit us.

The Roeper School is a pre-K 12 coeducational day school for gifted children, founded in 1941 by noted educators George and Annemarie Roeper. It is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS). The Lower School is located on a 12-acre wooded campus in Bloomfield Hills and the Middle/Upper School is located in a residential neighborhood in Birmingham, Michigan.
At the core of the school is an idealistic philosophy for life based upon self-actualization, interdependence, diversity, and human rights. The Roeper Review, an internationally recognized professional research journal, provides the latest theory and practice for the education of gifted children. Students' confidence increases as they explore an extensive core and elective curriculum, which supports social and emotional growth, intellectual depth and challenge, critical reasoning, decision-making, autonomy, and global awareness. Roeper students become increasingly self-directed, independent and appreciative of individual differences in an atmosphere that fosters compassion, curiosity, and a sense of responsibility within the student.
