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.

Few things are as essential as education.WALTER H. ANNENBERG '27

Financial aid at Peddie is based on each family's ability to pay. In accordance with the National Association of Independent Schools "Principles of Good Practice," we believe that the primary responsibility for funding a child's education lies with the family. As such, we expect that each family will fund the child's education to the extent that they are able. Our financial aid program is designed to aid families after they have considered all of their own resources.

The Peddie School uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process financial aid applications. This process ensures that your information will be delivered accurately, securely and quickly to our school.
