Newark Prep uses the curriculum from K12, the largest provider of online learning for grades K–12, to offer courses in the core subjects (math, English, history and science) along with a robust catalog of electives. Students attend school in our building every weekday, are supported by professional, certified teachers, and can participate in extracurricular sports, activities, and clubs.

Newark Prep provides engaging and personalized learning that truly maximizes each student's full potential—an education that fits the individual, not the masses—so kids of all backgrounds and aptitudes can thrive in high school and beyond. A customized learning plan is provided for each student, so those who need more time and support in certain subjects can get it, and those who are ready to move ahead can do so at their own pace.

Everything the students need to be successful in the program is provided at the school, including dedicated computer work stations for the online component of the instruction, as well textbooks, novels, math manipulatives, science equipment, art supplies, and more. With small classes, outstanding teachers, sports, clubs, and academic and social enrichment opportunities, Newark Prep creates a strong and warm school community for our students.
