Located just 50 miles from New York City in Hightstown NJ, Peddie School is a private, coeducational, college preparatory boarding and day school offering Grades 9-12.
Co-eduational Day & Boarding Programs for students in Grades 9-12:
Pioneering the use of wireless technology and a discovery-based science program, the school has increasingly seen its mission as leading the future of American education. Over the last five years, we have increased our course offerings, particularly in the sciences, including new courses in:
- Quantitative chemical analysis
- Organic chemistry
We have also added course offerings in arts, history and mathematics. Recently, Peddie has embarked on a number of ambitious projects, including the expansion of the 16-year-old Chinese language curriculum into a world-class Asian Studies program.
In preparing students for the world they will inherit, Peddie exposes them to languages and cultures that better position them to lead in an increasingly interdependent world.
An education in the arts plays a vital role in the development of our students and community. We provide students with a working knowledge of the cultural landscape they inhabit, expanding their sense of possibilities.
In both curricular and co-curricular offerings we encourage students to find their own creative voice. Celebrating each individual’s unique perspective while requiring of students to be accountable for their work in public exhibitions and performances, we value the creative process and its product.
Peddie's Community Life program supports the School Mission and Philosophy through its efforts to educate young people about social and health issues relevant to the adolescent years.
The Peddie English Department offers students a rigorous preparation for the liberal arts, and the humanities especially, by offering a rich program of reading and writing that, while drawing on some of the best that has been known and thought throughout the ages, addresses the challenges of modern life.
The Peddie History Department helps students develop an interest in and make sense of past events, ideas and people in order to discover the relevance of history to the world today. Ultimately, our mission is to help create dynamic, thoughtful students who understand the ways in which the past informs the present and the future.
We recognize our students’ diverse backgrounds and challenge them to strive for higher levels of achievement in both oral and written work. We provide an environment both inside and outside the classroom that encourages students to appreciate the connections between language and culture.
The Peddie Mathematics Department provides a rigorous college-preparatory program that fosters student understanding of and appreciation for mathematics as a discipline and prepares them to use mathematics for applications outside the classroom. The Mathematics Department has the following objectives:
- to challenge students to be confident, independent, critical thinkers and problem solvers
- to develop in students an appreciation for mathematics through diverse methods of learning
- to develop concrete mathematical fundamentals reinforced through technology
- to use technology as a tool to explore and discover mathematics and apply the mathematics in real world applications
- to develop an appreciation of mathematics in other academic disciplines
The Science Department introduces students to the ideas and theories that will help them to make sense of the world in which they live. The science curriculum provides learning experiences that build a foundation of knowledge and skills, encourage students to form opinions in a scientific manner, stimulate their curiosity about the natural world, and enable them to apply scientific methods to a variety of human endeavors and life experiences.
