The Peddie community commits itself to the intellectual, social, and moral growth of our students.
Remarkable for the range of their talents, abilities, interests, and backgrounds, our students distinguish themselves through their excitement, curiosity, and character.
They help make Peddie an open, dynamic community where a passion for learning thrives.
With respect, enthusiasm, humor, and patience, we challenge our students to reach for levels of achievement they have not attempted before and encourage them to measure the success of their efforts by the progress they make.
Ultimately, we seek not only to provide our students with vigorous preparation for college, but also to inspire them to strive for the highest quality of citizenship.
