Visit Peck

Experience Peck

The best way to get to know Peck is to visit!  Join us for an open house, a Little Makers or Mini Masters class, a community event, or a one-on-one tour of campus with our Admissions team.

List of 9 items.

  • Parent Visit and Tour

    Parent visits offer an up-close look at what life at Peck might be like for your child. Typically one hour long, these private visits with a member of our Admissions Team provide time for parents to ask questions and share specific information about their child, to observe classes and tour campus, as well as allow our Admissions Team to get to know your family better.  

    Visits typically occur during our school morning hours (between 8:15 a.m. 11:00 a.m.) and, we ask that children do not accompany parents for this visit.

    To schedule your parent visit, contact Admissions Associate Wanda Fiorini at or 973-539-8660 x 108.
