Applying to Hun
Welcome to the application process.
Congratulations on making the decision to explore independent school. The following outlines the information we will need from you throughout our journey of getting to know one another. The application deadline is Jan. 31st, at which time all application materials must be on file with the Admission Office. Decisions on completed applications are made available to families on March 10th. Late applications will be reviewed after March 10th on a rolling basis, if space remains available.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 609.921.7600.
1. Visit and Interview
A campus visit and interview is an important (and required) part of the admission process. It helps students get to know us better, and it can be an integral part of their decision-making process. Visits can be scheduled Monday through Friday between October 1st and January 31st, and then again on a rolling basis after March 10th. Families are encouraged to schedule an appointment early, as spots fill up quickly.
We understand that sometimes campus visits are not feasible, and so requests can be made for Skype interviews.
2. Submit Your Application
We subscribe to The Enrollment Management Association's Standard Application Online (SAO). The SAO is a widely accepted common application that many schools use. When initiating an application through SAO, we encourage families to preview the application to get a clear sense of the amount of time and information needed to complete the form. However, the form does not need to be completed in one sitting.
Application Fee: There is a non-refundable application fee of $50 for domestic applicants and $250 for international applicants.
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.
standardized test scores
Applicants may submit standardized test scores from the following organizations:
- Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) - Hun School Code: 4042
- PSAT, SAT, ACT - For students in grades 11, 12, or PG
- Character Skills Snapshot - All applicants are strongly encouraged to take the Character Skills Snapshot. For students who take the SSAT, there is no extra charge to complete The Snapshot.
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)- Required for international applicants for whom English is not the first language.
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.
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
