I graduated from Newman in 1968. My experience at Newman Preparatory School was fantastic. I have many wonderful memories of my time as a student at Newman. The faculty and staff were very helpful - very attentive. Newman opened doors for me academically and professionally.

I graduated from Newman in 1991 and thought it was a fantastic school. The curriculum was challenging and the rich and diverse student body made up of a large percentage of international students made for an unforgettable experience.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
