The Lawrenceville School

At the heart of this great school is the belief that our students dig deeper, reach higher, and stretch further when they feel the embrace of supportive peers and the mentorship of caring adults who know when and how to challenge them. That’s the Lawrenceville difference. This sense of community is fostered by the close-knit House system where young Lawrentians develop a deep sense of belonging; it is forged around the close confines of the Harkness table, where teachers engage the intellect, encourage students to grapple with ideas, and teach lifelong respect and humility.

Founded in 1810, The Lawrenceville School is a four-year, coeducational, college preparatory school of approximately 815 students, located in Lawrenceville, NJ - just five miles from Princeton and equidistant from New York City and Philadelphia. Our diverse student body comes from 32 states and 38 countries. Approximately 31.5% of the students currently enrolled receive financial aid; awards are made on the basis of demonstrated need.
