How to Apply

We are committed to a holistic review of each student who applies to Peddie; all components of the application are equally important.


Applying to Peddie consists of three steps: the interview, standardized testing and the application. Each piece of the process helps us see the many facets that make you the person you are. Our admission staff is ready to assist you along the way; please contact us at 609-944-7501 or at any time.



The interview is required and provides an opportunity for an admission officer to get to know more about you. At this time, all interviews take place via Zoom. All applicants must complete an inquiry form before scheduling an interview.

A note about your application and the COVID-19 pandemic:

If your application or testing process has been impacted in any way by the global pandemic, we are here to help. Please contact the Admission Office at 609-944-7501 or



Standardized testing is optional this year. Applicants are welcome to submit standardized test scores, which will be considered as part of the holistic review of the application.

All parts of the application are reviewed when determining whether a student is a strong fit for our rigorous academic curriculum and rich, multi-faceted programs and community. We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic may create challenges with taking standardized tests this year. We do not want testing to become a barrier to the many deserving and qualified students who want to attend Peddie.

Test scores are not required for consideration of need-based financial aid; however, scores are required for consideration for some merit scholarships.
