Hunterdon Central ... when you have a choice.

Hunterdon Central Regional High School - two time National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence - can be your school choice in 2015-2016.

Hunterdon Central has been a participant in the Interdistrict School Choice Program since the 2013-2014 school year.  Choice students are eligible to participate in all programs offered at Hunterdon Central.  Please explore this website to learn more about our academic, athletic and co-curricular programs and opportunities.  Navigation links at the top of this webpage can be used to access information on all Hunterdon Central programs.

Important Notice:  

The number of Choice applications in previous years has exceeded the number of available seats.  When this occurs, Hunterdon Central holds a lottery to determine accepted and waitlisted students, in accordance with State guidelines.

If a lottery is needed for the 2015-2016 school year, it will be held between December 12 and December 19, during the school day.  Parents/guardians will be notified by mail of the acceptance or waitlist status of their student.

Students attending our sending district school (East Amwell or Delaware) as School Choice students must follow the application guidelines to be considered for enrollment at Hunterdon Central.

Hunterdon Central is limited to five School Choice seats for the 2015-2016 school year.  However, we often reach out to students on our waitlist, as seats become available.
