1. Peddie School
Courses / Programs
Located just 50 miles from New York City in Hightstown NJ, Peddie School is a private, coeducational, college preparatory boarding and day school offering grades 9-12. Pioneering the use of wireless technology and a discovery-based science program, the school has increasingly seen its mission as leading the future of American education. Our academic program continues to transform itself and grow in meeting the demands of an ever-changing world.

Ninety percent of our faculty and their families live on campus, acting as role models and also getting to know students as individuals. Twice each week, family-style dinners bring the students, adults and children of our community together for a meal and conversation.

With full access to the dining hall, gym and Saturday night activities, it is often difficult to distinguish day students from boarders. While day students are free to make use of dorm lounges for studying or relaxing, there are also several options for free time - including the library, the Masland room, and a variety of study and lounge areas around the campus.

Peddie School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

We are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

The dorm becomes literally the students’ “home away from home.” Most students share living areas with roommates, though a few single rooms are available. The Housemaster and other dormitory faculty play a unique role in residential life. They help create a community and ensure that students adapt to dorm life and school. The campus bustles with activity at weekends, with dances, casino nights, sporting events and theater productions.

4. Purnell School, New Jersey
Courses / Programs
The Purnell School is a private, all-girls boarding high school in Pottersville, Somerset County NJ, an hour west of New York City and two hours north of Philadelphia. Because some girls need to discover success in a different way than those provided by traditional, competitive and large high schools, we offer a girl a chance to discover what she does best and to become the best she can at it. At Purnell, every girl "sits in the front row." Teachers practice what works best for girls and teach their classes in interesting, interactive ways.

As a result, girls are engaged in learning and they feel successful in the classroom. At Purnell, girls are encouraged to try new things and when they do they feel the support of their peers and teachers. Purnell is a place where one can grow into the woman she is meant to be, find a college that is right for her and learn important values to help her live a meaningful life. Be yourself, explore your strengths, find success, discover Purnell.
