Princeton Academy has introduced many meaningful initiatives to support boys' wellness such as the Lower School Mindfulness Program including boys' yoga, Middle School Health and Wellness Program, and fourth grade student participation in the Let Me Run program. The school's goal is to augment its highly successful academic program with a focus on the healthy social-emotional development of boys and their wellbeing. These efforts have been crystallized in Princeton Academy's recent strategic plan: Princeton Academy in 2021: leading a national reinvention of boys' education for a new generation of enlightened men.
