Newman International Academy is committed to character education. It is our desire to assist students in developing key qualities in intellect and behavior that will enable them to set their personal goals and aspirations high and be successful in their lives. It is Newman’s belief that commitment to character education is essential to the future success of NIAA students as well as our employees. To this end, NIAA will involve all students and school employees in character education on a weekly basis. Our weekly assembly is called POWWOW, which is an acronym that stands for Preparing Outstanding Warriors with Wisdom to Overcome and Win!
