Samuel Farrand serves as Headmaster, doing away with the girls’ division and establishing Newark Academy as a boys’ school. Under his leadership, enrollment increases and the Academy’s reputation flourishes. “For forming the character of a child it is important that his better emotions be continually called into exercise.”–Samuel Farrand, Headmaster, 1859-1865, 1875-1908
