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 for middle school and high school offers a benefit that provides students an important distinction in any application process. The Newman graduate, having successfully encountered the rigors of an international curriculum, is justifiably confident of success in college.

Boston As Our Campus

Every day, our students benefit from the experiential learning of "the city classroom",  in the Back Bay of Boston, the "education" city.  The Boston Public Library is our resource center, the museums and universities are steps away and the T takes our classes to new opportunities that arise around one of the great cities of the world.

Value and Values

The Newman School curriculum and community is intentionally designed to meet every student's academic, social and emotional needs.  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 a private 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. We understand every student is on a personal and developmental journey.  They graduate prepared for success in college and in their lives beyond.

Heart Speaks to Heart

Our school was founded over 75 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, students build authentic relationships, to self, to others, to ideas and the world around them. Our faculty help students develop the intellectual skills necessary for success in college, offering the benefit of the collective wisdom we have gained from each other.

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 show toward each other day in and day out.
