We offer 150 courses and 34 subject areas for AP and Honors. Our curriculum covers the major disciplines (arts, English, history, language, math, science)—and then it takes off: offerings in neurobiology, robotics, genetics. 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.
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
At Peddie, academics are really about your personal journey. 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.
