Princeton Prep Program

 

Princeton NJ -- Twenty-three Mercer County high school students, who were enrolled in the University's new Princeton Prep Program this summer, spent a day learning about New Jersey's coastal environment with a sailing adventure on the schooner A.J. Meerwald. The sail, out of Atlantic Highlands, included a presentation about the history and restoration of the Meerwald as well as lessons about marine ecology and the watershed. Princeton Prep is a three-year learning and enrichment program founded by Princeton Professor Miguel Centeno, directed by Project Administrator Richard Carter in Princeton's Teacher Preparation Program and funded by the University.
