Preview Days

We invite students interested in applying for entry to sixth or ninth grade (our Basking Ridge entry grades) for entry in September 2018, to spend the day on campus prior to submitting an application. Students will spend the day on campus with a current Pingry student. It is our hope they will gain a strong sense of our community and be better able to decide if they would like to submit an admission application.

The visit day includes a full day of classes for the child (we will provide a lunch) and an optional tour of campus for parents and family in the morning. We will host student visitors and offer tours on the following days:

October 3, 11, 23, 30 | 7:45 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. | Registration closed

Financial Aid Virtual Q&A Session

Do you find financial aid confusing? Would you like to ask questions about affording Pingry in a confidential setting? Is your schedule too full to attend yet another event in person? If any of the above apply to you, please join our Director of Financial Aid for a 30 minute online information session followed by an opportunity for live Q&A. Get an overview of financial aid at Pingry and engage in open dialogue about the process without ever leaving your home.
