Committed to enrolling the best students in the greater New Orleans area regardless of socio-economic status, Isidore Newman School admits students of any race, color, religion, sex, national and ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. While the cost of a Newman education is significant, we believe the value is greater and lasts a lifetime. The School offers financial assistance to those who demonstrate financial need. For the 2016-17 school year, 21% of the student body received aid totaling approximately $2.3 million. Additionally, Newman is the only local independent school that employs a full-time Director of Stewardship and Financial Aid to assist families through the financial aid application process.
