Day and Boarding; Grades 6-12




Your home away from home

At the heart of The Pennington School is our boarding community! With 120 boarding students and 50 faculty members and their families living on campus, Pennington is a place that feels like home. Our boarding community shares everything: we live together, work together, rest together, eat together, laugh together, and learn together, each and every day.

The faculty at Pennington serve our students not only in the classroom as teachers, but on the playing fields as coaches, in the theater as directors, and in the dormitories as hall parents and mentors. Because boarding students and teachers know each other well at Pennington, it means that students know whom to turn to about an academic challenge or a personal dilemma, and teachers are able to respond with care and knowledge to the concerns and needs of their students.

We look forward to welcoming you home at Pennington!
