Our mission at The Napier Academy is to develop our students’ character and intellect in order for them to function successfully in life.
Dr. Frank Napier Academy, former school # 4, was founded in 1932 as part of the Paterson Public School District. Napier Academy provides a learning environment for students aged 4 -15. High academic standards, a diverse curriculum and a clear focus on the moral, intellectual, physical and emotional development of students are central to this educational institution.
The Napier Academy is situated in the north side section of Paterson, located in the city's 1st Ward. This neighborhood borders the boroughs of Haledon and Prospect Park and is known for its hills and having sweeping views of New York City.
The learning environment is modern, comfortable, suitably equipped, technologically and purposefully designed for specific learning needs. Facilities are continuously upgraded to keep pace with the demands of the educational and extra-curricular programs.
All students benefit from a large gymnasium, auditorium, library, contemporary computer science lab, and art and music rooms. Additional facilities include playgrounds, an adjacent baseball field and gardens. Classroom learning is supported by field trips, which take advantage of the vast cultural and educational opportunities of New Jersey, New York and Washington D.C.
