NEWBERRY — Newberry Academy has been recognized as a National Beta Club School of Distinction, an award which recognizes those schools that are committed to academic excellence and dedicated to preparing students for college and career readiness.

As a School of Distinction, Newberry Academy received a banner that is displayed in the lobby, as well as a letter from the National Beta CEO, Bob O. Bright, celebrating the accomplishments of the chapter’s members.

“Increasing student involvement in Beta Club is one of the ways that Newberry Academy provides a path for improved academic performance,” said Head of School Brian Fitzgerald. “I am extremely proud of our students and their commitment to Beta Club’s mission. We are honored to be a recipient of such a prestigious award.”

Newberry Academy’s Beta Club recently held its annual candlelight Induction Ceremony, welcoming 57 members into Senior and Junior Beta Clubs.
