Selecting the school that’s right for you is an important process. Our Admissions team is committed to making your experience as personal and enjoyable as possible.

At Purnell, we understand that all students learn differently. Here, in a small, highly personalized environment where each girl is known and valued, we are able to design a customized learning plan to help you become a confident, successful learner. You’ll be empowered to seek, find, and sometimes create, your own learning experiences. Learning at Purnell happens in the classroom, on the stage, in the dorms, on the field, and in the community.

Our campus provides an idyllic setting for living and learning. Located on 83 picturesque acres, Purnell is surrounded by the rural, rolling hills of New Jersey, but we are also just an hour from all that New York City has to offer.

Visit Purnell for yourself. Tour our scenic campus. Sit in on our classes. Speak with students and faculty. See for yourself a school that dares to be different—and how we can make a difference in your life, too. we look forward to seeing you soon.
