Lauren Boros

Principal

Mrs. Boros grew up in Chicago. In seventh grade, after being inspired by a Teach For America representative’s presentation at her elementary school, she decided she would join TFA for two years upon college graduation. She went on to savor her education at Columbia University in New York City, diving into medical studies, Philosophy, travels to Italy (became fluent!) and Vogue Magazine for a truly unique internship. Upon graduation, as she considered pursuing these interests, she remembered her childhood pledge to TFA. She committed to teach seventh grade math students in Gary, Indiana, thinking she would then go on to law or business or medical school to further her career goals. Little did she know she would fall in love with the idea of providing educational equity and excellence for all children! She found what energized her as she taught her Gary students, empowering them with the strength and promise of their own potential. It was a profound experience that has led to her true raison d’etre.

Mrs. Boros earned her first Masters Degree from Dominican University during TFA. After her two years in Gary, she joined the Noble Network as a ninth grade algebra teacher at Pritzker College Prep. She also coached incoming and current TFA middle school math teachers as a Content Specialist. While teaching and leading the ninth grade team, she earned her second degree in Administration and Supervision at National Louis University in partnership with the KIPP School Leadership Program. Upon completion, Mrs. Boros became the Assistant Principal at Pritzker College Prep.

Now, Mrs. Boros is thrilled to be the founding leader and Principal of The Noble Academy, a ground-breaking collaboration between Phillips Exeter Academy and The Noble Network. She is wildly devoted to bringing Harkness, student-centered, discussion-based learning to Chicago’s youth. And she is over the moon proud to be graduating her founding class in June 2018.
