Admissions at Peck

Welcome! We can't wait to meet you.

From Our Team

Thank you for your interest in exploring the Peck experience for your child! We are excited to meet your family and look forward to learning about your child.
 
We are delighted to be conducting our admissions process for the 2021-22 season both in-person and virtually! It is our highest priority to keep our students, faculty, staff, and visitors safe while we comply with local and state health guidelines. Whether in-person or virtually, you will enjoy an informative, engaging, and personally tailored experience that conveys all the Peck program and community has to offer. Our Admissions Team is here to guide and support you through your exploration process and we look forward to meeting you.

Please note the admissions process for prospective students begins approximately 9-12 months prior to the year of entry. While we welcome applications throughout the full year, optimal opportunity for enrollment exists when applying prior to January 15. Space is limited in all grade levels, therefore families are best served when beginning the process early. As such, we are happy to waive the application fee for any family who submits their child's online application by November 1 (fee waiver code: peckpride)!

If you are considering applying your child for the coming 2022-2023 school year, please schedule a Parent Meeting and/or Tour via our online scheduler or by contacting Admissions Assistant Wanda Fiorini (wfiorini@peckschool.org or 973-539-8660, ext. 108). We encourage families not to delay in scheduling this opportunity given the unknown certainties the pandemic may bring this winter.  Additionally, check out our range of campus events and activities that we offer through the fall and winter months, which display firsthand all the Peck experience has to offer a child.  

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 7 items.

  • How do I get in touch with the Admissions Office?

    You have the flexibility to schedule your own parent meeting/tour online using our Admissions Scheduler. Go to our Visit Us page to schedule.
  • Can I tour Peck's campus?

    We are excited to again be offering in-person tours during the school day!

    We provide personalized campus tours for interested families led by a member of our Admissions Team. Tours can be scheduled Monday-Friday during school hours.  

    To make the most of an in-person tour, parents should first schedule either a virtual or in-person Parent Meeting. If meeting in-person, the Parent Meeting will include a full campus tour. If meeting virtually, a campus tour can be scheduled after the fact for a future date. 

    If you prefer to explore our campus virtually, please enjoy our 360-degree virtual tours, as well as our official school video for a sneak peek into life at Peck!
  • Do you have spaces for the 2022-23 school year?

    The admissions season runs from September-March for the upcoming academic year, with a January 15 deadline for application submission. Optimal opportunity for enrollment exists when following this timeline.

    That said, inquiries for entrance to all grades are welcomed at any point during the year. Later inquiries and applications will be handled on a rolling basis and as space allows. In order to receive more information about space availability in the grade level you are seeking, please contact our office directly.
  • Are you still accepting applications?

    While optimal opportunity for enrollment exists when applying between September-March for the upcoming academic year, families are welcome and encouraged to apply at any time.

    Spaces in each grade level are limited. For grade levels that are at capacity, a wait pool is established for qualified and interested candidates. If a space becomes available, a child from the wait pool is offered the opportunity to enroll.
  • How has the admissions process changed given the current COVID-19 pandemic?

    Peck’s admissions process has always been about personal connection. Whether in-person or virtually, we are still able to provide that experience to prospective families. Depending on the grade level you are seeking for your child, the steps in the admissions process do vary, as does our approach to fulfilling those requirements. For more information, please contact the Admissions Office directly or schedule a parent meeting so that we may discuss available options with you.
  • Can I apply for financial aid?

    Parents interested in applying for financial aid should indicate that intention on the child's admissions application. Our office will then share with you the steps in the process of applying for financial aid. Financial aid applications are welcome at any time throughout the year, but optimal opportunity for receipt of a financial aid award exists for families who submit both their admissions and financial aid applications by January 15.
  • Do Peck faculty have recommendations for educational activities to do at home?

    Yes! Many of our faculty have compiled a robust list of quality, at-home children's activities that are both fun and educational, and serve a wide range of ages and interests.

    Please visit our Parent COVID-19 resource page to view the list, as well as other parent resources which you may find helpful!
