At Hun, it's not just about what you learn, but how you learn it.

That's why our private school curriculum is filled with a healthy mix of academics that stretch our minds and personal endeavors that make our hearts soar. It's what we call a balanced equation.

The Hun School of Princeton was founded by Princeton University Math Professor Dr. John Gale Hun in 1914. Dr. Hun believed that he could teach any student even the most complex ideas by getting to know them on a personal level. More than 100 years later, our teachers still take this approach. They aspire to bring out the unique gifts of each student by taking the time to know them, bond with them, and then by deftly pivoting their lessons to meet their individual characteristics.

Due to the impact of Covid-19, and the associated challenges families are facing in taking standardized tests this fall, Hun is adjusting its standardized testing requirements. For the 2022-23 application year, Hun is adopting a “Test Flexible” program. We still require standardized testing, but the testing does not have to be the SSAT. In addition to the SSAT, we will accept local state testing, ERB, ISEE, WISC, and PSAT/SAT. Questions about appropriate testing for the application can be addressed to the Admission Office.

"Hun’s peerless reputation for outstanding academic rigor in a stimulating environment made it the clear choice for us.

Combine these attributes with its exceptional faculty, engaging student guidance and support, extraordinary facilities, immersive and varied extracurricular clubs and activities, and a diverse international student base, and it becomes clear that The Hun School rises above all. That it is a beautiful place, ices an already rich cake.

So just as a high tide rises all boats — we know that the Hun experience will prepare our children for a lifetime of success — academically, socially, civically, and personally."
