Peddie Profiles

It is no secret to anyone who has stepped foot on Peddie's campus that our people define our school.

Those who are drawn to Peddie, both students and teachers, become a part of our community because they find energy and inspiration from one another. These relationships are sustained and enriched far beyond graduation day, and we continue to celebrate the myriad successes of our fellow alumni throughout the country and around the world. We invite you to explore these people and their stories.


The community at Peddie challenged me to become a better version of myself. It is because of this institution that I have made important strides towards being a better student, friend, and global citizen. Emma Becker '16
