North Star Academy Charter School of Newark 2010 NBR School

North Star Academy School District
Newark, New Jersey

North Star Academy Charter School of Newark (North Star) was founded in 1997 to improve outcomes for youth in Newark, NJ. Today, 100% of North Star graduates are accepted to four-year colleges and 72% of North Star alumni have graduated or are on track to graduate from college. Principal James Verrilli, a co-founder of North Star Academy Charter School, credits the school’s intentional, college-bound culture, and tightly designed instructional systems.

NBRS program staff created videos about North Star’s college-going culture, College for all Students, and its professional supports, Training Olympic-Level Teachers.
