College Counseling

The college counseling program at The Hun School of Princeton is all about working together to discover good matches between our students and life after The Hun School.

In partnership with students and parents, the college counseling staff at The Hun School works very hard to discover an appropriate future course of action for each student. Everyone in this partnership must be actively involved, open and honest. Students must plan carefully to make sure to sign up for appropriate testing through the junior and senior year.  If appropriate, our families should also complete the financial aid profile form. Every fall, The Hun School is fortunate to have more than 100 college and university representatives visit our campus. These meetings can be very helpful for our students as they sort through options.
