The Hun Summer School of Princeton provides small classes, traditional grading, and student-centered learning for resident students ages 13 to 17. Students may also attend as a day student. We welcome students from all over the world, United States, and the Princeton area.
Our program gives students an opportunity to work on academic needs during the summer that may include credit for a particular course, review an academic subject, or prepare for a course a student plans to take in the fall. Five different credit courses are offered that include Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and Chemistry and meet five hours, Monday to Friday. Enrichment courses meet during two different class periods and are offered in science, math, English, S.A.T. Prep. and the College Application Process. There are also four courses for the middle school student. Open classroom, where a student can meet with his or her teacher, is held each day. Students come from all over each summer and have their own personal goal. It is our job to help them reach their goal and help them feel successful, said Mark Kolman, director of the Academic Session. As a resident student, students will stay in single-sex dorms with faculty supervision.
