The Princeton Friends School admissions process is designed to allow us to get to know you and your child. It is a multi-step process, requiring:

  • A tour of campus.
  • Completion of an online application.
  • A teacher recommendation from the current school year; a personal recommendation from an adult who knows your child well; and, for children applying for first grade and above, a school transcript. These documents are mailed or emailed to the school directly.
  • A school visit for your child.




Begin by going to the online application. You will be asked to create an account for your family that will allow you to submit one or more applications. As we receive recommendations, and as you complete the interviews and visits, your progress will be noted on your account.

We have rolling admissions and continually accept applications. We would be happy to discuss our admissions process and a timeline with you. We encourage you to contact the admissions office by calling (609) 683-1194 x13.

“I’ve learned how to strongly state opinions on difficult topics while still being respectful. I’ve overcome many academic struggles, like how to study effectively for a test, write more efficient vocabulary sentences, take good margin notes in literature, and write a strong essay for a timed quiz…I’ve learned to accept humility and ask for help.”

Princeton Friends has rolling admissions and continually accepts applications.

After the interviews, students entering 2nd to 8th grades are invited for a visit during a school day. Rising 1st graders visit with our Kindergarteners for a morning. This visit gives us a chance to observe prospective students in the classroom and for students to experience a school day at Princeton Friends. Visiting students are asked to bring a snack, a lunch (if staying for the full day), and appropriate clothing to be outside for any type of weather. Visitors should plan to arrive at 8 a.m. and check in at the front desk in the main Schoolhouse. Pick-up is at 3:30 p.m.

Admissions decisions are communicated with a personal phone call and an email on at the time of acceptance. Financial aid awards are sent out by email after applications are complete and decisions have been made.
