A series of four students after graduation. Several are college students, one is a chef, and one is a builder.

From a nurse in the armed forces to an advertising agency analyst to a career in technology, HPS alumni go on to do some very interesting things.

Read about some of our alumni and check back soon for more stories. 

Mark McCullen

HPS Graduate lands job in New York City

HPS Class of 2010
Ramapo College Class of 2014

After graduating from Hunterdon Prep, Mark’s journey took him to college, and four years later, to New York City where he works as a Senior Analyst for a marketing agency. He couldn’t be happier. Hunterdon Prep represented a second chance for Mark. He was skeptical about enrolling at HPS but became hooked when he saw how much the staff members genuinely cared about their students. “The staff never gave up on me.”, remembers Mark.

Mark credits Hunterdon Prep with his decision to go to college, saying that the staff encouraged him to apply and enroll.  Asked about how Hunterdon Prep helped him succeed, Mark shares, “I learned two things at HPS that will stay with me forever: (1) Always be willing to communicate with people, and (2) Never give up on yourself and keep trying even when you fail.

In 2015, Mark was the guest speaker at the Hunterdon Preparatory School “Outside the Box” Fundraiser. He accepted the invitation to speak because he wanted to tell his story, and he wanted to tell the guests “why Hunterdon Prep matters to him and to the community.” Mark had a chance to come back and visit HPS in 2015 and he commented on the new school campus and the expansion of educational programs; “the school is raising the bar and its students are benefiting.”
