Upcoming Events


Cultural Education - Its history, its impact, and relevance

You are cordially invited to The Chad School Foundation’s Black History Month celebration, “Cultural Education”. The event will be held at The Chad School Building, 308 South 9th Street, Newark on Tuesday, February 26, 2019, from 5:30 pm to 8:00pm. The event will highlight the importance of culturally-relevant education and honor The Chad School’s legacy as an institution that produced Newark scholars who were academically competitive and equally self-aware.


Chad is honored to welcome Mayor Ras J. Baraka, Senator M. Teresa Ruiz, and former Chad educator, Brother Pat Green, as our esteemed guests, and Dr. Howard Fuller as the keynote speaker for the evening. The evening will also feature a panel discussion of former Chad School students and educators who will pay homage to independent, community-based education and further emphasize the importance of culturally relevant education in Newark’s schools. Commitment, consistency, and perseverance are the cornerstones of Chad’s 50 years of success in Newark. We welcome your participation and look forward to seeing you.
