the HPS Difference
"At HPS you become part of something that is bigger than yourself."
All students deserve a school that enables them to thrive. At Hunterdon Preparatory School, we have a deep understanding of the challenges that struggling students are facing. For over 45 years, our experienced staff has been providing our students with the academic and communication skills that enable them to rediscover their value and to create bright and productive futures.
YOUR CHILD deserves a school where students feel visible, valued, and respected.
YOUR CHILD deserves a school that recognizes and appreciates their gifts and talents.
YOUR CHILD deserves a school that teaches and practices connection and collaboration.
YOUR CHILD deserves a school that inspires resilience and possibility.
EVERY VOICE IS OF EQUAL VALUE
The HPS Difference starts with our “Good Faith Agreement”, an honor code which is incorporated into all areas of daily life at the school. This agreement requires all students and staff members to share feedback, practice conflict resolution, and acquire the communications skills necessary to create and sustain healthy relationships and practice effective self-advocacy. These skills naturally carry over to work in the classroom and greatly facilitate academic achievement.
HPS STUDENTS ARE UNIQUE, BRIGHT, AND RICHLY TALENTED
Young adults at HPS have boundless opportunities to explore their full potential for academic and personal growth. Through individualized and small group instruction our experienced staff support students through their middle school, high school, and post-high school programs. Students have the opportunity to explore and share their gifts and talents through the school’s diverse elective programs.
THE HEALING POWER OF CONNECTION
As best said by one of our students, “At HPS, you become part of something that is bigger than yourself.” Establishing and maintaining healthy connections to one another and our surrounding communities is essential to one’s well-being. In our Communications Lab Class (group counseling), HPS students learn and practice the communications skills they need to be part of a school community that values acceptance, responsibility, and respect above all other outcomes. Students practice these skills in all areas of our program throughout the day. Every moment of the school day becomes a learning experience.
INSPIRING HOPE AND POSSIBILITY
HPS alumni prove over and over again that with hard work and determination, anything is possible. Confidence and competence are achieved through preparation and lots of experience. Through job internships, musical performances, art exhibitions, and community service projects, HPS students have many opportunities to discover their gifts and talents and share them with the larger community. Hunterdon Prep’s 12+ post-high school program supports students in their transition from high school to college, employment, and toward living an independent, productive, and fulfilling life.
