Peddie School Mission, Philosophy and Values


The Peddie community commits itself to the intellectual, social and moral growth of our students. Remarkable for the range of their talents, abilities, interests, and backgrounds, our students distinguish themselves through their excitement, curiosity, and character. They help make Peddie an open, dynamic community where a passion for learning thrives. With respect, enthusiasm, humor, and patience, we challenge our students to reach for levels of achievement that they have not attempted before and encourage them to measure the success of their efforts by the progress they make. Ultimately, we seek not only to provide our students with vigorous preparation for college but also to inspire them to thrive for the highest quality of citizenship.


The Peddie community believes in the dignity and worth of all individuals. We believe all students possess unique and valuable qualities which, when developed, will enable them to be thoughtful and constructive members of society. Personal growth occurs through participation in a vartiety of academic, athletic, artistic and community programs, and in the relationships students form with peers and adults in a residential school. We believe that through involvement in all areas of Peddie life, students gain an appreciation for learning and critical thinking, a means of clarifying ideals and values, the ability to make responsible decisions, and a sense of pride in themselves and their community.


The Peddie community recognizes that the path toward a fulfilling and happy life requires the steady practice of enduring values:
