History[edit]

The school was founded in 1914 by Dr. John Gale Hun, a professor at Princeton University. Originally called the Princeton Math School, it later changed its name to the Princeton Tutoring School.

In 1925, the school acquired both its current name and the property on Edgerstoune Road that makes up its current location.
