On a forty-five acre campus, five minutes from Princeton, New Jersey, The Hun School of Princetons summer residential program provides opportunities for academic study: The Academic Session and The American Culture and Language Institute.
Both summer programs at the Hun School of Princeton begin on June 26th for students age 13 to 18. Classes begin on June 26th and end on July 28th.
One of the most rewarding experiences of the Schools summer resident program is the opportunity to meet teenagers from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds.
Monday - Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
In the summer Academic Session, students can choose from four credit courses (Algebra II, Geometry, Pre Calculus, and Chemistry) and from a variety of enrichment courses in English, mathematics, and science. We also offer courses for middle school students and prep classes in SAT Verbal and Math. The Hun School of Princeton offers open classroom at the end of the academic day where students can meet with their individual teacher.
American Culture and Language Institute
Monday - Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. (Residential cost: $7110; Day cost: $3350)
Students, who have a need to study English, can enroll in The American Culture and Language Institute, a globally diverse program where learning English is the focus of classroom study and travel. In order to strengthen English skills and learn American history and culture, students enrolled in The American Culture and Language Institute travel to New York City, Philadelphia, Hershey, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. during the five weeks. It is on these trips, along with recreational offerings, that their use of the English language gets a rigorous workout.
Afternoon Activities Program
An Afternoon Activities Program is available Monday Friday from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. in Global Commons. Students choose from several activities offered daily. On the weekends, off-campus trips are offered and supervised by resident faculty.
The new Wilf Family Global Commons will be used to house summer residential students, provide space for summer programs staff, and be the central hub for the residential program and afternoon activities program. During the regular school year, Global Commons features dorm space for 56 students, four faculty apartments, high-tech classrooms, five common rooms, technology kiosks, social areas, the School store, and snack bar. Many of these areas will be available to our summer students.
Meals are provided to all students - residential and commuter. Breakfast, including hot and cold items, begins at 7:00 a.m. before the first class period. A hot lunch is provided in the air-conditioned dining hall each day. Lunch offerings include hot entrees, a deli bar, a salad bar, fresh fruit, assorted beverages, and desserts. Dinner choices are also healthy and plentiful. The summer dining staff is the same staff that prepares nutritious meals for the regular school year.
