Welcome to Peddie!

As you begin to explore the next step in your educational journey, we want to share with you why Peddie may be your perfect landing spot.

Here, you can engage your passions to reach your potential and realize your purpose, on our campus and in the world beyond.

In our community, everyone is known and valued. We constantly seek ways to improve ourselves, and support others in their own pursuits. We are fearless enough to take smart risks, but flexible enough to change our minds in the face of new information or new circumstances or a better idea. We thrive on debate, ask challenging questions and work collaboratively to solve problems.

We begin each day wanting to be better than we were yesterday, as individuals and as a community.
