We offer 150 courses and 34 subject areas for AP and Honors. Our curriculum covers the major disciplines (arts, English, history, language, math, science) — then it takes off from there with offerings in neurobiology, robotics and genetics, and classes like Green Architecture, Financial Markets and Investment, Modern India. We develop new courses every year. And we’re always thinking of ways to adapt courses to new information and new ideas, include hands-on experience and apply coursework in the real world.
We know you have the intellectual curiosity, desire and sense of purpose to realize your potential, so we'll challenge you to think – hard – and share those thoughts with confidence, articulating clearly and writing critically.
From the start, you'll have a faculty advisor who will be your cheerleader and advocate. Towards the end of your sophomore year, you'll be assigned an academic advisor who will study your academic profile, talk with you about your interests and plans, and help you chart an academic course that will help you explore your passions, test your boundaries and prepare you for your future.
The Signature Experience at Peddie
Sometimes your passions are greater than a classroom can contain. The Signature Experience at Peddie allows you to use the world as your classroom for independent, original work in collaboration with faculty mentors. You can work with experts in your chosen field and then return to campus to share your own newfound expertise with the Peddie community.
A successful educational journey is not just about being able to recite the correct answers. It's about being able to think about what is being studied in a critical and careful way, and even more, to develop one's own voice to learn and express it with confidence. We have learned this at Peddie. Pras Hongladaromp '02
