About The Hudson School
Founded in 1978, The Hudson School in Hoboken NJ provides intellectually inquisitive students in grades 5-12 with a rigorous and relevant college-preparatory education
that inspires independent thinking and intellectual risk-taking. Our goal is to develop compassionate, responsible, principled citizens, who are socially conscious and committed to lifelong learning and service. The school fosters an eclectic and supportive
environment that challenges students and faculty to develop their passions and talents through a stimulating, balanced and creative interdisciplinary curriculum.
Since our inception, we have been committed to a need-blind admission policy. The Hudson School accepts students from diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds based on their academic promise and intellectual curiosity, rather than their financial ability. We began with 18 middle school students in 1978 (of whom 12 received scholarships through the generosity of the Geraldine Dodge Foundation) and now include 190 students in grades 5 – 12. We continue to admit every qualified student for whom we have room and do whatever we can to help that child’s family meet the costs of sending their child to our school.
