We're proud to be a school that feels like a family.

We make space for parents and students to explore the meaning of independence, to consider the responsibilities of being a member of both a family and a community. We collaborate with parents to cultivate healthy growth, productive habits, satisfying relationships and bright outcomes. All Peddie parents are automatically members of the Peddie Parents Association. Whether you are near or far, explore the many ways you can be an active member of our Peddie family.

With each incoming Freshman Class, two parents serve as representatives for the class throughout their four years at Peddie.

All Peddie parents are automatically members of the Peddie Parents Association - no dues or registration required. Our goal is to support all parents and to serve as a resource for questions or information throughout their child's Peddie journey, so please don't hesitate to contact any one of us if we can be of help.

We encourage you to get involved - there is no better way to experience the warmth and energy of the Peddie community than by jumping in to attend and/or volunteer at events. Whether you live close by or far away, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in ways that fit your schedule. See below for a listing of PPA events and ways that you can be a part of our efforts.

If you would like to get involved or if you want to learn more, please reach out to any of the PPA officers or contact me at

We look forward to your involvement!

Ala Viva!
