School Reviews

5  10/14/2017
My son recently graduated from Princeton Academy and I could not be happier with his preparation for high school. Princeton Academy taught him how to think deeply, how to write thoughtfully, how to problem solve and persevere. The values base of the Princeton Academy program also helped him grow tremendously as an individual. He graduated ready for the challenge of high school and as a young man with an understanding of what it takes to truly appreciate and respect others. This school does wonders for boys and I only wish my son had entered the school earlier so he had more time there.
