2022 Summer Institute Courses

Taking courses over the summer may also free up students' scheduling options during the school year. For the Summer of 2022, Hunterdon Central is able to supplement the tuition fees using federal grant funds and offer a significantly discounted tuition rate for in-district students. Students interested in Summer Institute courses should speak to their counselors.
