Saint Vincent Academy Continuing A Proud Tradition

When Nelly Payen graduated from Saint Vincent Academy in Newark 11 years ago, she felt confident and more than academically equipped to enter college and then begin a professional career.

“Attending Saint Vincent Academy was quite an eye-opener. I was exposed to a rigorous curriculum, learned and participated in community outreach and gained a secondary family,” said Payen, 29, who started out in New Community’s Youth Leadership Program as a teen and was hired by NCC’s Youth Services Department as a Youth Leader following her graduation from Essex County College in 2005.
