Princeton Academy has introduced many meaningful initiatives to support boys' wellness such as the Lower School Mindfulness Program including boys' yoga, Middle School Life Skills, and in the spring, fourth grade students will participate in the Let Me Run program. The school's goal is to augment its highly successful academic program with a focus on the social-emotional development of boys and their wellbeing. These efforts have been crystallized in Princeton Academy's recent strategic plan vision statement: Princeton Academy in 2021: leading a national reinvention of boys' education for a new generation of enlightened men.
Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart is an independent school for boys in Kindergarten through Grade 8. Our mission is to develop young men with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We educate the whole boy in mind, body and spirit. A rigorous, inquiry-based, hands-on academic program joins unparalleled character development and a wide variety of arts, athletics and co-curriculars to provide an ideal learning environment for boys.
