Required of all students, Forms I-VI (Grades 7-12).
Pingry recognizes the need to support and partner with our community and to encourage a sense of social responsibility among our students. The development of character, self-esteem, compassion, and leadership are key components of a Pingry education. These objectives are the foundation of our Community and Civic Engagement Program. Students are encouraged to volunteer in their fields of interest. Myriad opportunities are available, including tutoring, community outreach, special projects, and work in schools, hospitals, and senior communities.
Organizations with which associations have been established include (but are certainly not limited to!) Bridges, Community Food Bank, Matheny Medical and Educational Center, ECLC, and the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program. New projects based on individual interest are always welcomed. When possible, the school provides transportation and needed resources.
