PINGRY PREVIEW VISIT DAYS

We invite students interested in applying for entry to sixth or ninth grade (our Basking Ridge entry grades) in September 2019, 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. If an application is submitted, this will fulfill their visit day requirement.

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 in the morning. Reservations are required.
