Who We Are

The Academic Booster Club is made up of parents, grandparents, and Nutley residents who believe in the power of academics to transform lives.

Our mission is twofold: to foster a passion for learning through exciting, hands-on activities and to reward and celebrate academic achievement.

To those ends, we sponsor science and history fairs, an annual poetry festival, the National Honor Society dinner, the Kids’ Presidential Election, and the popular Let's Learn summer program.

We also award scholarships each year to three graduating seniors and oversee the Nutley High School Academic Hall of Fame.

Please consider becoming a member of the Nutley ABC! Family memberships cost only $15 a year. Click here to learn more.

"Hamilton" raffle!
We have an exciting prize to raffle--one that fits right in with our educational mission. We are offering 2 tickets (up to $400 in value) to the hit Broadway musical that brings American history to exciting new life--“Hamilton” by Lin-Manuel Miranda! Raffle tickets cost $10 apiece. If you want one or more, email us at and we will be sure to get your ticket(s) to you. We will draw the winner at this year’s Science Fair on March 18, 2017. You don’t have to be present to win. Many thanks to Playbill for helping us get the hottest tickets in town.
