At The Newman School, we live our motto, "Heart Speaks to Heart." Faculty relationships are the foundation of students' intellectual exploration and personal growth. Our International Baccalaureate curriculum cultivates students’ abilities to think critically, ask questions, learn across disciplines, and develop research skills to thrive in college and become global contributors.

Founded in 1945, located on Marlborough Street, in the heart of Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, The Newman School serves students from grades 7-12 from Boston, surrounding towns, and 40 countries.

We offer the only comprehensive boarding program in the city. Our students participate in activities and sports, pursuing their passions in the "education city," and embrace Boston as their campus to engage in meaningful community service and countless activities.

Students develop a global and community mindedness that enriches their ability to make an impact in the world. The warm and caring environment and small class sizes make Newman a place where students are seen and valued. Integral at Newman are programs in service, leadership, sports, arts, and activities that build skills and friendships with the support of teachers who care, are passionate about learning, and provide ways for each student to demonstrate their capability for success in colleges and universities.

Currently, Newman alumni are enrolled at schools such as Boston College, Boston University, Brandeis, Brown, College of the Holy Cross, Columbia, Connecticut College, Cornell, Duke, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, McGill University, Tufts, University of Michigan, University of Southern California, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
