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.
