The private school admission process doesn’t have to be overwhelming! The Hun School’s Office of Admission is available to help you at each step along the way. Below you will find an overview of process, but feel free to contact us if you have any questions at (609) 921-7600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hun School of Princeton subscribes to The Enrollment Management Association's Standard Application Online (SAO). The SAO is a widely accepted common application that supports the submission of applications and all required school forms to multiple schools. When initiating an application through the SAO, we encourage you to preview the entire application prior to beginning, so that you have a clear sense for the time and information you need. The application does not need to be completed in one sitting; you will be able to start, stop, and resume at any time.
Candidates for admission must submit a non-refundable application fee of $50 for domestic applicants and $250 for international applicants.
Ready to apply?
Before you begin the application process, we encourage you to gather all required documents:
- Through the SAO, applicants should submit a transcript request to their current school. We require official transcripts for at least two full school years, in addition to up-to-date grades for the current year.
- We require three recommendation letters from your current school: one from a guidance counselor, one from a math teacher, and one from an English teacher. Applicants can submit recommendation requests to teachers through the SAO.
- After coming for a campus visit, applicants will receive an email with a link to a Video Questionnaire. Applicants will view questions recorded by Hun students, and asked to record their answers. All instructions will be available through the link. This is a new step to the process that will allow students to authentically speak about themselves and their experiences. These are meant to be casual informal recordings that will allow our office to get to know you more personally.
Character Skills Snapshot
- The Character Skills Snapshot is optional. For students who take the SSAT, there is no extra charge to complete The Snapshot. The Snapshot, which is offered on the SAO website, will offer a broader representation of student skills by highlighting character traits that are more in line with The Hun School Mission.
For International Applicants: English Proficiency Exams
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for international applicants for whom English is not the first language. The Hun School also accepts the TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo English Language Tests, and scores should be emailed directly to the Admission Office.
standardized test scores: "Test Flexible"
- All applicants are required to submit some form of Standardized Testing results as a part of their official application. Hun accepts SSAT scores as submitted through the Standardized Application Online (SAO), or any of the following standardized tests: ERB, ISEE, SAT, PSAT, ACT, WISC, and approved state-administered standardized tests. These scores can be submitted by emailing them to the admission office directly, and do not need to be uploaded into the SAO. For questions about the acceptability of a specific standardized test, simply reach out to the office for approval. We hope this flexibility takes some of the pressure off of our applicants, while still providing the important academic data the Admission Committee needs.
- Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) - Hun School Code: 4042
- PSAT, SAT, ACT - For students in grades 11, 12, or PG.
The Arthur Rozas International Student Program serves a small group of students each year who require English as a Second Language (ESL) support. Students come to The Hun School from all over the word — 25 - 35 different countries in a given year — including Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Africa.
A TOEFL score is required of all international applicants for whom English is not the first language.

Academics Learning Skills Program Applicants
Consistent with the mission of The Hun School of Princeton, the Academic Learning Skills Program (ALSP) accepts students with varying learning styles. Through ALSP, we are able to implement an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), through one-to-one instruction, highly individualized support, and advocacy. A Hun School education is a highly vigorous endeavor; however, motivated students with learning differences can certainly thrive.
Applicants for the ALSP must follow the application procedures as outlined above. In addition, candidates must provide the following:
- Psycho-educational evaluation that documents the learning difference
- WISC test with subtest scores, copies of all IEPs or 504 Plans
