2023 Peddie Summer Academy
Running from July 9 through July 22, Peddie Summer Academy (PSA) is a window into the world of boarding school and academic study. The aim is to provide summer students with the opportunity for concentrated and supportive academic growth along with extracurricular activities, socialization, collaboration, and innovation. When students are not in the classroom, they are challenging themselves on the athletic fields and in the art studio.
PSA mirrors the Peddie experience in the sense that students go to classes, pursue extracurriculars, eat meals together, and live in the dormitories. The program runs for 14 days with an on-campus “weekend” partway through. All students will live in the dormitories and stay on campus for the program duration. The days will be fast paced, with three elective courses in the morning and creative and athletic programs in the afternoon.
Every student will enroll in three electives: one STEM elective, one humanities elective and one art elective. All classes will be designed and taught by Peddie faculty. Students will also have full use of Peddie’s beautiful acreage facilities for tennis, volleyball, kickball, soccer, and more. Off-campus evening activities include a trip to the local sculpture garden, dinner in downtown Princeton, and indoor rock climbing. Students will even have two days off; one is a cleanup day led by the sustainability program and the other is a day-trip to the Jersey Shore. Evening sessions will revolve around board games, cooking challenges, and nights around the campfire. Faculty will hold conversations and discussions centered around healthy habits, community living, and leadership.
