Miss Fine's Center

Miss Fine's School

The Miss Fine’s Center at Princeton Day School is dedicated to the committed faculty members who have advanced and who continue to advance the school’s mission to deliver excellence in teaching in an ever-changing world.

Established in 2014, the purpose of the Miss Fine’s Center is to promote the collaborative study of topics and themes that demand and benefit from an interdisciplinary approach. The Center, endowed through the generosity of Kenneth L. Wallach and Susan Schildkraut Wallach ’64, provides ongoing financial support for professional development, travel, and research for PDS faculty.

The goals of the Center are advanced through the efforts of faculty members, known as Miss Fine’s Center Fellows, who engage in interdisciplinary work and share their findings with their faculty colleagues, as well as in forums beyond the school community, including national independent school conferences and other discipline-specific professional gatherings.



Tara Quigley, Director of the Miss Fine’s Center, has announced the 2019 recipients of Miss Fine’s Fellowships for the purpose of advancing interdisciplinary education at PDS. These faculty have received fellowships to complete the following curricular work.
