Dear Prospective Families,

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!

Over the past two years, the school community came together to continue to provide the amazing education our young men receive at Princeton Academy. Our students have thrived academically, athletically and artistically, and have shown great resilience despite the challenges the world has faced. We invite you to visit us for an in-person campus tour to see how they are learning, growing, and contributing to Princeton Academy, and hear more about how they continue to flourish once they graduate and move on to the best high schools in the world. 

While we have already begun to accept applications for the 2023–24 school year, it is not too late to apply for the 2022–23! Our regular admission season has ended, however, we still have limited spots available in some grades and would be happy to work with you in the admission process. 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 campus tour. 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 process.

What parents are saying about the best boys private school in Princeton, NJ:

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!

PASH Parent

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.
