Today’s families are busy! Many have one or more parents working outside the home, or children in multiple schools with full activity schedules. We know that practical logistics come into play when choosing a school for your family. Therefore, we have put together some information below that might answer some of your initial questions.

Boarding Students

Hun School students come from all over the world. Princeton, New Jersey is conveniently located 45 miles from Philadelphia and 52 miles from New York City. The Hun School is just off route 206, 1.5 miles from downtown Princeton. Our campus is easily accessible by plane (Trenton-Mercer Airport, Philadelphia International Airport, Newark Airport, JFK and LaGuardia Airports); train (Princeton Junction is served by NJ Transit and Amtrak); and car (Route 206 is minutes from Route 1 and Route 95.) There are also busses and shuttles that transport students to airports, train stations, and nearby cities. 

Day Students

Day students have various transportation options. Many local school districts offer bussing to Hun. Others will stipend families in lieu of bussing. We have families who carpool and some that utilize public transportation (there is a bus stop at the corner of Route 206 and Edgerstoune Road).

Day students also enjoy the convenience of Hun as a 24-hour, 7 day-a-week boarding school. Many of our parents work outside of the home and commute some distances. Day students are welcome to remain on campus in the evening and enjoy dinner in the Global Commons or Dining Hall. Middle School students have the additional option of participating in a teacher-guided homework club.
