Please read this important post regarding The Academy’s Pledge and Petition to The Archdiocese of Newark.

Many of you reading this, or your family members, have benefited from Catholic education in the past. We have heard from many how impactful it has been to your lives. As it stands now, the Archdiocese of Newark has slated the Academy of Our Lady of Peace for permanent closure at the end of the 2020 school year. If we are to change their minds, we need to show broad and sustained support, both financial and in enrollment numbers, for the school.

We, the Advisory Board, are making such a commitment. We prayerfully ask you that you join us by pledging your commitment as well. A list of our Board Members can be found at .


Please also sign our online PETITION here addressed to Cardinal Joseph William Tobin, C.Ss.R., D.D., Archbishop of NewarkRev. Msgr. Thomas Nydegger, Ed.D, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia, Barbara Dolan, Acting Superintendent of Schools, and Ann Oro, Assistant Superintendent for Union County and Instructional Technology.

We are so heart-warmed by the outpouring of love and support from the Academy and Our lady of Peace Church Communities, as well as members of the local community. We are most appreciative of your help and encouragement. Thank you!
