THE GOOD LIFE AT ABS
Our new location is at the Rambling Pines campus in Hopewell, New Jersey, about 10 miles west of downtown Princeton. This vibrant campus offers the boys classrooms, rehearsal space and over 200 acres of outdoor play area, with soccer fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, and even mini-golf.
This year, the American Boychoir School opens the school year under a new "homestay" model. Because of its national reputation, the American Boychoir draws students from around the country. This year more than half the boys are from outside the local area. These students will be living with local families under our new homestay program. Homestay is an opportunity to become part of a local ABS family during the school year. Beyond room and board, the local families provide transportation, coordinate music lessons, and create other opportunities for activities and recreation with other ABS boys and host families. Some of the activities include going to the beach, ice skating, local library, movies and the mall, sporting events, trips to NYC, and exploring local places of interest.
ABS offers after-school clubs on topics such as art, tennis, basketball, magic cards, and math. In cooperation with the Parents Association, ABS offers occasional special events, like school dances, formal dinners, and even a trip to Broadway.
