Schools in Somerset aim to prepare students for the future but when you want to ensure that your child receives an exceptional education, we invite you to learn more about the Rutgers Preparatory School. First established in 1766, we are the oldest Independent School in New Jersey, and have educated generations of students.  With our deep tradition of excellence in education, we welcome a diverse group of students to learn, develop, and grow.

We are a private, independent institution. As a coeducational day school for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12, we enroll students from diverse geographic, economic, social, and ethnic backgrounds. With our small class sizes, we provide personalized attention to students, helping prepare them for the future ahead. 

With advanced scholarship education opportunities at our school, we can help ensure that students are provided the greatest advantage in preparation for their years of collegiate education. We host advanced placement programs to accelerate a child’s education. Subjects include Calculus, Economics and Statistics, European History, Psychology, Computer Science, Latin, Japanese, and a host of art, drama and music programs.  Additionally, we host over 33 athletic teams so that our students can also excel in their sport of choice.

There are many private schools in Somerset County, NJ, but Rutgers Preparatory School aims to provide the best possible education for students. We also accept students from areas that neighbor Franklin Township, NJ. For more information about our application process, please contact our admissions department. Please also ask for information about our tuition assistance programs. We look forward to touring the campus with you and your child.
