"When I was considering independent high schools, it did not take long for Pingry to become my first choice. I was astonished by the number of opportunities to challenge myself academically and fuel my passions. I was excited to discover that Pingry’s community is supportive, inclusive, and diverse. In meeting faculty, administration, and alumni, it was clear that Pingry focuses on preparing its students to be successful in college and in life. Every interaction I had made me feel comfortable and welcome. I knew instinctively that Pingry was the best fit for me and was the school I wanted to attend. Applying early action allowed me to communicate that message to Pingry. I am thrilled to be part of the Community, and encourage you to consider Pingry!"
