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. Please take a look at ways that you can get involved.
Peddie Parents Association
The purpose of the Peddie Parents Association is to support harmonious relationships between parents or guardians and the faculty, students and administration of the Peddie School, thereby contributing to the general welfare of the school.
Welcome to the PPA! 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 in our organization - 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.
President, Peddie Parents Association
There are many ways to become involved in Peddie Parents Association activities, whether your student is a boarding or a day student. We welcome ALL parents, guardians and host families! Some of the committees run events that directly involve the students (a great way to stay connected), while a few others support the faculty and parents. Boarding parents can participate in many ways from home or at times when you are visiting your student on campus.
If you would like to be involved in any of the PPA activities, please contact the appropriate committee chair with your preferred email and phone number.
