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 admission@peddie.org at any time.


 

Interview

The interview is required and provides an opportunity for an admission officer to get to know more about you. At this time, interviews take place in person and 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 admission@peddie.org.

Test

Standardized testing is required and test scores will be considered as part of the holistic review of your application. We will accept a wide range of assessments to fulfill the testing requirement, including the SSAT, ISEE, or any state standardized test administered in 2021-2022 (e.g. New Jersey Student Learning Assessments). 

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.

Test scores do not impact our consideration of need-based financial assistance.
