Admission

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

That's why our 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.

This year, our Admission Counselors have planned a series of virtual events and programs to help you get to know our community better. We invite you to participate in virtual Q&A sessions, take a drive-through tour of campus, follow us on social media, and -- when you're ready -- schedule a virtual interview. We look forward to meeting you!

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 2021-22 application year, a current SSAT is now optional. Applicants can, and are encouraged to, submit older testing if it is available, but the SSAT is no longer a required piece of the application process.
 
The Character Skills Snapshot, which can be taken at home through the SAO website, is required. The Snapshot will offer a broader representation of student skills by highlighting character traits that are more in line with The Hun School Mission.

"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."
