One of the Top Private High Schools in NJ

Yes, students work hard here, but our private boarding school’s administration believes in balance and that our students should find time for family, friends, arts, and athletics as well as academics. There’s a reason we are regarded as one of the best private high schools in New Jersey — and tuition is a small price to pay when it comes to the preparation for college and beyond that our students find to be so exceptional here.
This is the time in your life to try something new and to test your limits. To develop resilience, you sometimes need to take risks. We want you to challenge yourself academically, and we have enough honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses to fully engage your intellect in every discipline. But we also want you to play a team sport or two, try out for a theatrical production, learn to play a musical instrument, and paint or draw or sculpt. Whatever your talents and interests, once you arrive at our private high school in Pennington, NJ, we can help you engineer new successes and build on previous accomplishments.
Whether you’re from NJ, PA, NY, or beyond — including China, Vietnam, Hong Kong, South Korea; throughout Asia, India, and Europe — The Pennington School is a unique place where students feel immediately at home and are actively involved in their own learning. Here, you'll find the experiences that will build the excellent academic skills, confidence, resilience, and character you will need to succeed in high school, in college, and in life.
