From the window in my office I can see Lower School students as they skip off to recess. Actually, I can hear them before I see them, laughing and calling to their friends. I can also see the Colross Lawn, where the entire School gathers for convocation in September, and where our seniors graduate in June. Princeton Day School is a special community filled with extraordinary learners working collaboratively to deepen their competencies, empower each other through shared learning and reach their potential.
Beginning in PreK with our exceptional Lower School program, and continuing through Middle and Upper School, dynamic, skilled and dedicated teachers facilitate authentic, student-led learning and discovery. At PDS, teachers seek to address each student’s needs and foster their interests both inside and outside of the classroom. They are learning coaches who pose questions in ways that challenge students to broaden their thinking and ask big questions. It is not unusual to see students and teachers sitting together at lunch or during free periods continuing a conversation started in class.
The mission of our admission office is to create dynamic peer groups of talented, involved and responsible students. We seek academically strong students who embrace skills, interests and experiences that will contribute to the life of the School in a variety of areas including the arts, athletics, leadership and service. We deeply value diversity and new perspectives.
While our website is a terrific source of information, the best way to get to know Princeton Day School is to visit. Please register for a campus tour or simply call our office at 609-924-6700 ext. 1200 so that we can schedule one for you.
As a proud Princeton Day School parent myself, I see first-hand how PDS both nurtures the individual and celebrates the community. On behalf of the admission team, I welcome you to come see this for yourself and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
Director of Admission and Financial Aid
