The Newman Advantage

1. WE EDUCATE THINKERS

Learning at Newman School is not just about ‘knowing the facts’. Our students become critical thinkers, who are able to apply their learning across subjects and in into their every day worlds.  They graduate prepared for success in college and in their lives beyond.

2. THE CITY OF BOSTON IS 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 near by and the T takes our classes to new opportunities that arise all around one of the great cities of the world.

3. OUR ACADEMIC RIGOR IS RECOGNIZED AROUND THE WORLD

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 takes high school learning a step beyond; a benefit that offers students an important distinction in any application process.

4. OUR FACULTY, TOO, IS ESTEEMED WORLDWIDE

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.

5. STUDENTS AREN’T JUST NAMES.  THEY’RE A PART OF US.

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.

6. LEARNING IS NOT LIMITED TO CLASSROOMS

Responsibility, organization, decorum and collaboration are the unspoken elements that contribute to success in college and careers.  Newman School students are expected to live these ideals throughout their time here.

7. RESPECT IS EARNED AND DESERVED

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.

8. FOR COLLEGE GUIDANCE, OUR DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN

With small classes of just 75 students per year, our college guidance head knows each child as an individual and can spend more time to ensure all questions are answered, all help is given and that each student finds the right college fit.
