About Us

Headmaster's Welcome

As Headmaster (and as a parent of a Hun School alumnus), I feel a deep appreciation of the qualities that make The Hun School unique in the world of independent schools.
Our founder, Dr. John Gale Hun, built the School a century ago on the premise that learning is a highly personal process, best nurtured in close individual relationships between teacher and student.  That powerful tradition is enacted every day, in small classes, by excellent teachers who know their students well, and by students who appreciate connecting to skilled and caring adults.
The Hun School is a twenty-four hour, culturally diverse campus, in one of the most academically-minded communities in the world.  However, what most visitors want to know is, what does it feel like to work and live among us?  Walking our campus today,  you will sense a healthy camaraderie among students and adults.  You will appreciate the architectural and natural beauty of our 45 acres, tucked in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of Princeton University.  You will meet happy and respectful students – diverse boarders and day students, boys and girls from New Jersey and around the world – who make living and working here a joy.  And you will experience first-hand how a school can teach traditional values and a dynamic curriculum; balance academic excellence  and exceptionally broad offerings in athletics, the arts, clubs, and service. 

Whether you are a prospective student or an alumnus eager to reconnect, please come and visit!   We are eager to show you how The Hun School of today changes lives and instills a true love of learning.

Sincerely yours,

Jonathan G. Brougham
