School Opening 2021

The school opening plan for the 2021-2022 academic year is guided by three core principles:  the health and safety of our community, preserving Newman’s transformative in-person learning experience, and facilitating student social growth and personal development through co-curricular experiences. We all recognize the importance of safe in-person learning and look forward to being together in the fall. Newman is committing significant resources to ensure the health and safety of the community, deliver the highest quality education, and provide enrichment activities that create the Newman experience. We look forward to welcoming students, faculty and staff returning to the Back Bay.
