Boarding student life
In significant ways, Peddie is family. Ninety percent of our faculty and their families live on campus, acting as role models and also getting to know students as individuals. Twice each week, family-style dinners bring the students, adults and children of our community together for a meal and conversation. Other events - including community meetings and the Chapel program - punctuate the week with home-like rhythms.
Day Student Life
Community life is vibrant at Peddie. From day one, students become increasingly immersed with friends from many groups - the team, the dorm, the performance group, the lab. With full access to the dining hall, gym and Saturday night activities, it is often difficult to distinguish day students from boarders. While day students are free to make use of dorm lounges for studying or relaxing, there are also several options for free time - including the library, the Masland room, and a variety of study and lounge areas around the campus.
