Introduction to New Jersey
Blair Academy offers an excellent college preparatory curriculum to students in grades 9â€”12. The schoolâ€™s academic emphasis is on student-teacher partnerships, small classes, advanced placement/specialized programs and global perspectives.Â Set in rural Blairstown, the Academy is home to a baseball team that won its fourth consecutive Prep A championship this year. Students can engage outside the classroom through an array of student-run organizations covering a wide range of interests, from international issues to math to the environment, and more.

Peddie Schoolâ€™s picturesque campus borders Peddie Lake, eight miles from Princeton and fifty miles from both New York City and Philadelphia. Serving students in grades 9â€”12, Peddie has earned a reputation for academic rigor, a friendly culture and focus on the entire studentâ€”mind, body and spirit.

Outside the classroom, Hun boasts an excellent hockey teamâ€”two players were drafted to the pros this yearâ€”as well as programs in cross country, tennis, lacrosse and soccer. Student organizations offer extra-curricular activities in electronics, the arts, debate and sports.
All candidates for secondary school admission must provide scores for the SSAT, and international applicants must provide score for the TOEFL.
