  • The right fit is out there!

    Newman School students prepare for the college process gradually in ninth and tenth grade through the principles of the IB Curriculum.
Our students start to establish the organizational skills, personal responsibility, and academic focus that lead them toward a successful college search process, strong acceptance, and a rewarding college experience.

The Newman School's College Counseling Program:
  • Experienced counselors and faculty
  • Small community; we know our students
  • Educational Programming from higher education leaders
  • In-person visits and presentations from college admission representatives
  • Online resources and data to track dynamic admission trends
  • A flexible school culture that allows students to pursue their passions
  • Relationships with many competitive colleges and universities
 At Newman, we encourage students to look toward their college futures and offer various resources to help them find a successful school match. Our resources include seasoned college counselors, a wealth of printed and online tools such as Naviance, and informational workshops on the college discovery process. 

We are proud to partner with The College Guidance Network (CGN), SMARTTrack College Funding, and MEFA. Industry leaders provide our families with resources and webinars about college admission and financial aid through these organizations.

The size of our school enables our counseling staff to know each student as an individual better and provide skilled guidance toward the best college match.

  • We are mindful that the college application process is both personal and analytical. 

  • We focus on our students, who bring their unique talents, interests, and experiences to the search.

  • We do our best to meet our students where they are and help each one as an individual.
We engage in a student-centered approach that helps Newman students find greater satisfaction and success in college.
