Pingree empowers every community member to pursue knowledge with courage and imagination, thrive in joy and challenge, and create a more just and equitable world.
Statement of Character and Purpose
As a small college preparatory day school founded in 1960, Pingree advances its mission through its teachers, advisors and coaches, whose close rapport with students empowers their academic, athletic, and extracurricular careers here and enables us to identify and encourage personal strengths. These interactions, in partnership with parents, enable us to instill the values of our mission.
Students become confident in their abilities and diligent as citizens in society. At Pingree, students participate actively in efforts to bring about a better world, developing as leaders and individuals with the courage to take risks and grow as students and people.
Compelled by our mission, Pingree aspires to create a learning environment where every community member thrives. Our curriculum, programming, and decision-making reflect an ongoing commitment to being equitable and just in our practices and policies. By honoring the identities and lived experiences within our community, we foster the self-reflection and empathy necessary to be courageous and empowered upstanders on campus and in the world.
