Come Visit Us!


The best way to learn about Pingry is to come visit. The Admission Office hosts various opportunities to see our campuses throughout the year (that are listed below. Additionally, applicants to Grades 3-11 are required to visit the campus they are applying to for a full day as part of the application process. Applicants to Grade 2 will spend a half-day at the Short Hills Campus. Applicants will be paired with a Pingry student, sit in on classes and eat our lunch. Finally, Kindergarten and Grade 1 applicants spend a morning on campus for a group visitation. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future!

For directions to our two campuses, please visit our Maps & Directions page.

Pingry Preview Visit Days

We invite students interested in applying for entry to sixth or ninth grade (our Basking Ridge entry grades) in September 2015, to spend the day on campus prior to submitting an application.

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:

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.
