Statement of Character and Purpose
As a small, coeducational 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 enables 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.
Pingree School’s mission states that, “Pingree believes that love of learning flourishes best in a diverse community.” In keeping with this philosophy, we must actively recruit students, faculty, staff, and trustees of diverse backgrounds. The school and its trustees are committed to ensuring that Pingree is open and welcoming to a population that is all-inclusive. We seek to be a community of people who respect, nurture, and sustain an awareness of how the diversity among us enriches all of our lives.
