Signature Experiences At Peddie
At Peddie, you build your own education.
That's why we created the Signature Experience. In your junior and senior years, you'll have the opportunity to design your own program of independent research or creative work and pursue it under the guidance of faculty mentors.
Whether you want to study the inner workings of robots, hone your creative writing skills, dive deep into a foreign language, or curate an art exhibit, you can immerse yourself fully in your field of choice. You'll have even more freedom if you choose a summer program, where the entire experience – the concept, the goals and the execution – belongs to you. No matter what you want to study, you'll find a place for it at Peddie.
