Host International Program information: The Pennington School's Host International Program (HIP) matches international students with families of current Pennington day students. The program is designed to help students transition to life at a boarding school in the United States, and it allows local students to experience other cultures and perspectives. International students who participate in the program do not live with their host families; instead, they and their hosts participate in various activities together when school is in session. We hope that local parents will consider taking part in this wonderful opportunity for the 2018-19 school year! Full details of the program are available on the School website. If you have any questions, please contact Director of International Student Services Judy Rossi at 609-737-6147 or by email at
