Our Mission:   Newberry Math & Science Academy prepares students from diverse backgrounds for college and career through a rigorous and integrated curriculum.  At our school, differences are celebrated.  We nurture children by balancing the academic and social aspects of learning so as to prepare them to envision their place in the world.  To that end, we teach, develop, and heighten the social engagement skills and strategies necessary for learning to take place.

Our Vision:   To be a safe, nurturing, and academically rigorous setting where students grow and learn within a culturally-rich environment.

“Newberry, Newberry,
You are the pride of our hearts.
It’s from this dear old school, it’s from this dear old school where we all get our start.
Newberry, Newberry,
It’s where we start to grow to make you proud of us, to make you proud of us
Wherever we may go!”
