Welcome and thank you for your interest in Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart, an all-boys' educational experience that prepares your son to use his creativity, compassion and courage to help make the world a better place!
While the world around us continues to adapt to the circumstances surrounding the global pandemic of COVID-19, our community of educators collaborated to create a vibrant and dynamic new learning environment with a focus on what is best for boys. Staying true to our mission, we created, HAWKHub, our signature distance learning program. In preparation for the future, our School Leadership Team is working diligently to present a comprehensive re-entry plan for the fall which will leverage our expansive 50-acre campus and innovative technology while keeping our students and educators healthy and safe.
Our campus is currently closed as we follow protocols for safety during this time, however, our Enrollment Management Office is working remotely and creatively reimagining the ways prospective families can engage and learn more about the best private school for boys in Princeton. Year after year, our graduates attend the best high schools in the nation and go on to contribute to their new communities in meaningful ways through their creativity, compassion and courage.
Also, keep in mind that a Princeton Academy education may be more affordable than you think. Learn more about our Tuition and Affordability. In line with our mission and commitment to equity and access, we are proud that over 40% of our current families receive Individualized Affordable Tuition grants ranging from $1,000 to $30,000.
Please reach out to us to schedule a Zoom meeting... We are excited to connect with you! Email us and we will be in touch within 24 hours.
We look forward to getting to know you and your son and assisting with the application process. Our goal is to make the process as personalized as possible.

In order to support families applying to Princeton Academy during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making it optional for students applying for Grades 4-8 to submit standardized testing as part of their application. Though the Enrollment Management Association plans to make in-home testing of the SSAT available, we do not want to create additional barriers for families during this challenging time. If students want to submit SSAT scores, they are welcome to, but if they choose not to, we require the submission of an additional recommendation, and a graded writing sample be sent to the school at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get started on your application today! Create a new account at SSAT.org or sign in to your existing account.
Do you have a question about applying to Princeton Academy?
What I value most about Princeton Academy is the focus on developing my son's character in addition to providing a high level of academics. Being a Sacred Heart school adds a deeper level of spiritual growth that expands beyond the school day and is applied in everyday life. Our son is becoming a gentleman right before our eyes! It is truly what makes Princeton Academy unique and very special!
We had trouble envisioning what could be better than the Princeton public school our boys used to attend until we learned about Princeton Academy. There is just something about the leadership, goals, and curriculum at Princeton Academy that truly inspired us to send our sons there as they continue to move through their educational journey.
