Isidore Newman School says

Founded in 1903, Isidore Newman School is a co-educational independent school that serves high-achieving and highly motivated students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. We also offer an Early Childhood Program called Greenie House for children ages six weeks to four years old. We are located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans blocks away from Tulane and Loyola University. With a current enrollment of just over 900 students, Newman is the only co-educational, non-sectarian, independent day school in the city of New Orleans. Our School enjoys a national reputation for excellence and achievement in academics, athletics and the arts with our students matriculating to the most selective colleges and universities in the country.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
