Like all family businesses, the children of the proprietors are often conscripted into service and Noah was no different! So Noah comes to McMillan Education having experienced firsthand its multi-faceted work with families and students for many years. Over time, Noah’s contributions to McMillan Education evolved from answering phones and greeting families to guiding students in the college application completion process and aiding in developing our comprehensive client privileged access OWL Portal, a critical tool serving our families’ educational planning needs. Noah now focuses on optimizing McMillan Education’s communication and outreach efforts to families, schools, universities and therapeutic programs. He plays a critical role in the development and ongoing refinement of McMillan Education’s educational planning online tools for students and families. He also continues to assist students in both the school and college application completion process.
The consummate student-athlete and a product of the work that is at the core of McMillan Education’s mission, Noah attended independent day and boarding schools over the course of his elementary, middle and secondary education. A graduate of Avon Old Farms School, much of Noah’s early educational journey was influenced by his love for and talent in athletics. Prior to attending boarding school at Avon Old Farms, where he played football and lacrosse, Noah attended The Fay School and St. Sebastian’s School, where he discovered his passion for Classical Studies and also played hockey. He began his undergraduate studies at The College of the Holy Cross, where he declared his major in Classics and played Varsity Football. After being medically sidelined from his Division I Football career at Holy Cross, Noah decided to transfer and ended up at Tufts University, where he continued his major in Classical Studies with a concentration in political philosophy.
Noah has worked on a number of federal, state and local political campaigns in Massachusetts, where he combined his interest in the foundations and practices of democracy with his communications skills. He also served as a social media consultant for a fitness company. An enthusiastic contributor to McMillan Education’s community service initiatives, Noah loves working with the Build Greater Boston program serving Boston Public School under-resourced students.
In his free time, Noah is an avid reader of ancient history and philosophy, an insatiable Boston sports fan, and an everyday listener to political and sports podcasts. He lives in Boston’s Back Bay where he loves walking on the Esplanade with another McMillan Education regular presence, the boxer-bulldog mix Crash.
