Financial Aid

We believe that extraordinary students should be rewarded with extraordinary opportunities.

That's why, all the way back in 1921, Walter Annenberg was accepted and enrolled at Peddie, having been denied admission at other schools because of his religious and ethnic background. Peddie saw promise in him. Annenberg went on to lead one of America's most influential media empires. In 1993, he awarded Peddie the largest financial gift ever given to an independent boarding school, in large part to endow financial aid for deserving students.

At Peddie, we are committed to finding ways to help extraordinary students attend our school. Almost 40% of our students receive tuition assistance, including merit-based scholarships.

On Father's Day 1993, Walter H. Annenberg '27 bestowed an historic $100 million gift to Peddie as an endowed fund designed in large part to expand financial aid. As a result, today's Peddie students represent a wide range of geographic, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, adding a plurality of thought that spurs innovation. As Peddie continues to evolve, we do so with Annenberg's imprint guiding the way.
