The Newman School, a 7-12, International Baccalaureate, co-ed day school in Boston’s historic Back Bay, is seeking a Director of Admissions to begin work on July 1, 2020. The Director will report to the Head of School and will be a key member of the Head’s Administrative Team.
The Director of Admissions at the Newman School works very closely with the Head of School, the Administrative Leadership Team, and the faculty. The Director oversees all details related to enrollment management at Newman: setting goals, managing attrition and recruitment of students (both domestic and international), chairing the Admissions Committee, enrollment marketing and financial aid.
Newman’s student body consists of approximately 220 students who come from Boston and surrounding suburbs, as well as 15 foreign countries. Newman is one of only three Boston area IB schools. A seventh and eighth grade were added in 2017 to help answer a goal of the current Strategic Plan, “to increase domestic enrollment.”
Newman is known for its strong academic programs and small, family like, community. The school is located in Boston’s Back Bay and it takes full advantage of its location. For example, Newman students use the famous Boston Public Library as their place to study, do research, and even sit for IB diploma exams. The Newman crew and sailing teams can be seen daily working out on Boston’s famous Charles River. Newman is involved with the dynamic culture of Boston. For example, Newman has an arrangement with the Boston Ballet that allows high school dancers to also enroll in Newman classes and earn a Newman diploma.
