Does the Hun School of Princeton Offer International Programs?

The Hun School's Global and Immersion Learning Program runs multiple trips throughout the year that provide students with the chance to step out of their comfort zones and experience new cultures. Some trips, like the Advanced Art class trip to Morocco, are tied to specific academic courses. Other trips, like the exchange program with The Canford School in England, are open to all students. 

The Hun School also offers a unique travel program within its curriculum called NextTerm. For 3 weeks during freshman, sophomore, junior and senior year, students travel to various places near and far from the school. 

While in most school travel programs, students are taught to focus on culture, NextTerm courses explore a specific topic or issue, in the environment from which that topic came from. The result is empowering, invigorating, and transformative for upper school students. Learn more about NextTerm here- https://www.hunschool.org/upper-school/nextterm
