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

It's about innovation

Teacherly Intuition

Finding and developing our students' interests increases their engagement in learning.
By Matthew Roach, English Department Chair


Please note: Peddie has a three-term academic calendar. Not all courses are offered every term; various electives are offered based on course enrollment.
