Why We’re Different
Small Feel, Big Choice
We’re large enough to offer a complete range of athletic, art and music programs but small enough to feel like other private schools in South Jersey. Haddonfield offers a non-religious curriculum for college-bound students, and its student body regularly achieves top test scores in the region.
Parents who choose Haddonfield are often looking to blend the diverse experience of a public district with the academic excellence of a private school. We’re different because we achieve that “best of both worlds” goal. Nowhere else in the Philadelphia region would every student be welcome on our no-cut athletic teams, then be part of an almost guaranteed winning season. What other school has enough students for seven afterschool clubs involving music, and enough academic achievement for an AP course in Music Theory? Our graduates go on to enroll at small-town colleges like Albright and Emerson, and powerhouse universities like Yale, Columbia and Princeton.
Haddonfield schools are integrated into a close-knit but cosmopolitan community where an above-average socioeconomic profile attracts business leaders, executives and other professionals. Unlike most public systems, Haddonfield’s benefits from an academic homogeneity with a high percentage of students succeeding in its rigorous college prep program. The schools are unique in their ability to draw students from other districts in the region, a testament to the district’s well-earned reputation.
