Grades 6-12; Boarding 8-12


Our residential community consists of more than 140 boarding students and more than half of the School's faculty and administration.

We believe that our relatively small size contributes to our greatest strength as a residential community: a sense of home. Faculty members get to know each of our residential students.

As members of a common community we share everything; we live together, work together, rest together, eat together, laugh together, learn together. The faculty at Pennington is with you not only in the classroom as teachers, but also on the playing fields as coaches, in the theater as directors, and in the residences as your hall parents and mentors.

Boarding students and teachers know each other well at Pennington. That relationship means that you will always know to whom you can turn about an academic challenge or a personal dilemma. Teachers are able to respond with care and knowledge to the concerns and needs of all of their students.

The Pennington School's residential facilities include three dormitories which comprise 10 residence halls. Each residence hall houses 9-15 students and 1-2 faculty family apartments. Our residences house a diverse community representing students from many states in the U.S. and over a dozen countries.
