Choosing the right school is an exciting and important process for you and your family.


You've decided to take the next step by applying to Peddie, and we couldn't be happier!

To get started, you'll complete the Standard Application Online (SAO) - all of the steps in the process are detailed below. Our admission staff is ready to assist you and your family along the way - contact our office at 609-944-7501 or email admission@peddie.org with any questions. If you are applying as an international student, please email internationalcoordinator@peddie.org for questions specific to this process. We look forward to hearing from you!

We choose our students because we believe that we can help them discover things about themselves that they don't already know; and because they have something to offer Peddie that we don't already have.Molly Dunne, Director of Admission
