From the very beginning of their secondary school experience, Newman students are engaged in the process of becoming educated adults through their interaction with the exciting environment of one of the worlds greatest cities, Boston.
Founded in 1945, The Newman School, an independent day school in the Catholic tradition, prepares young men and women from Boston and around the world for success in university and college studies. With a school culture that is uniquely welcoming and supportive, Newman provides students from broadly diverse backgrounds an opportunity to pursue serious studies in the company of like-minded peers and instructors. Studies are organized around the principles of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and students have the option of pursuing the entire IB Diploma or those portions of it which meet their needs and aspirations.
Guided by Cardinal Newmans motto, Cor ad Cor loquitur, Heart speaks to Heart, the school believes that students are able to achieve their potential when they have the opportunity to pursue their studies in an environment that is characterized by mutual respect, seriousness of purpose, membership in a constructive community, and an awareness of personal and shared responsibility. A vibrant program of activities and sports provides students with opportunities for personal growth beyond the classroom.
