Our program is big.  Our community is small.

Boarding school is an opportunity to dig more deeply into a child’s education, but also into their development as an individual. Living away from home, you’ll build confidence and independence, and academic opportunities specifically for residents will help you maintain the highest possible level of academic achievement as you prepare for college and life.

At Hun, the Resident Program is designed to facilitate that discovery and accomplishment.  The personal relationships that develop between our resident faculty and our students, between our students and each other, are the foundation for that discovery. You’ll be immersed in an atmosphere where every student is encouraged to try new things, explore the world of possibilities available at The Hun School, and discover new interests and hidden talents.  

One hundred and eighty students, forty-five acres, twenty-five families, twenty-two countries, fifteen states, four dormitories, a dozen pets .... you get the idea! The size of our boarding program is one in a series of carefully designed elements to provide comfort and community; to foster growth and independence. Ours is a thriving, diverse culture, where students from all over the world come together to become active, engaged members of our community.
