Robert Treat Academy is an elementary school with two school buildings. At our Stephen N. Adubato Campus in the North Ward at 443 Clifton Avenue (which opened in 1997), we have grades Kindergarten through eighth, with two classes on each grade.
At our Jackie Robinson Campus in the Central Ward (which opened in 2009), we have grades kindergarten through eighth with one class on each grade.
THE ONLY REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND ROBERT TREAT ACADEMY ARE:

2. TO ENTER KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN MUST BE FIVE YEARS OLD BY OCTOBER 1ST.
3. TO ENTER GRADES 1 THROUGH EIGHT, CHILDREN MUST HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE PRIOR GRADE AT THEIR PREVIOUS SCHOOL.
Kindergarten lotteries for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on February 22, 2017 (Stephen N. Adubato Campus) and February 23, 2017 (Jackie Robinson Campus)
Kindergarten openings are assigned first to eligible siblings at each campus; then the remaining openings are filled through the lottery process.
AFTER THE CLASSES ARE FILLED WAITING LISTS WILL BE FORMED EACH YEAR WHEN WE HOLD OUR LOTTERIES. IN ACCORDANCE WITH NJ DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION REGULATIONS, THESE LISTS EXPIRE AT THE END OF EACH SCHOOL YEAR. PARENTS MUST REAPPLY FOR THE NEXT GRADE IF THEY ARE STILL INTERESTED IN ROBERT TREAT ACADEMY. YOU MAY CONTACT US BY PHONE AT 973-482-8811 FOR INFORMATION ON HOW TO UPDATE YOUR APPLICATION.
First through eighth grade lotteries for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on May 23rd,2017
Since we will not know whether there will be openings in these grades (until the beginning of the next school year), we hold lotteries to create waiting lists. Then, if a spot or spots become available, they will be offered to the children on the waiting list for that campus and grade. Waiting lists for siblings are also kept for each grade. Siblings receive first preference in enrollment. If there is no eligible sibling waiting, the opening is offered to the first child on the waiting list for the applicable grade.
*If you are unable to apply on-line paper applications can be obtained at the Academy. You may drop them off at either campus or send them by mail (Robert Treat Academy, 443 Clifton Avenue, Newark, NJ 07104) or by fax (973-482-7681). If you chose to mail the application you must call us to confirm the application was received.
