Noah Tennant

CEO, Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia Charter School
2016 Neubauer Fellow

“I serve as a school leader because it is fun. It is dynamic and fulfilling. It is a blessing to be part of the lives of our students and part of the fabric of our community. It is reassuring to know the power and strength of our young people when given forums to shine and grow.”

Noah served as the principal of Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia Charter School from 2011 – 2018 before transitioning to the CEO role in 2018. Under his leadership, Boys’ Latin has maintained an average college matriculation rate of 85% and an average college persistence rate of 77%. Boys’ Latin is the only public all-boys school in Pennsylvania.


Noah has been an educator since 1998. Prior to becoming a principal, Noah served as Assistant Principal, Acting Director of Guidance, and middle school English teacher. Noah was named University of Pennsylvania’s Educator of the Year (2017) and received the YMCA Achievers Excellence in Service to Youth Award.
