The Newman Advantage

International Baccalaureate

As an International Baccalaureate school, our reputation precedes us at every college and university around the world.  The rigor and depth of our academic curriculum offers a benefit that offers students an important distinction in any application process.

Boston As Our Campus

Every day, each of our students benefit from a buzzing hive of learning outside our doors in the Back Bay of Boston.  The Boston Public Library is our resource center, the restaurants and snack bars are just nearby and the T takes our classes to new opportunities that arise all around one of the great cities of the world.

Value and Values

Learning at Newman School is not just about ‘knowing the facts’. Our students are critical thinkers, who are able to apply their learning across subjects and into their everyday worlds.  Newman is committed to providing the best of an independent school education at an accessible price point.


Newman School faculty hail from all parts of the world; they hold advanced degrees from acclaimed universities and an experiential knowledge base that is unparalleled by any secondary school in our area. They graduate prepared for success in college and in their lives beyond.

Heart Speaks to Heart

Our school was founded over 70 years ago, inspired by the educational values embodied in the life and work of John Henry Cardinal Newman. Guided by Newman's motto, Cor ad cor loquitur, Heart speaks to heart, our faculty and staff get to know each of our students well, helping then to develop the intellectual skills necessary for success in college, offering the benefit of the wisdom we have gained through years of experience. The Newman graduate, having successfully encountered the rigors of an international curriculum, is justifiably confident of success in college.

Unique Spirit

The care and concern our students, faculty and staff have for each other comes not from a rulebook but rather from the respect we engage in toward each other day in and day out.
