His course load includes several demanding Honors and Advanced Placement courses. Peter is a member of the National Honor Society and has earned a 5 on each of his AP exams. He is a member of the Student Council, served as Class President as a sophomore and acted as a class representative as a junior.

One of Peter's favorite extracurricular activities is playing the cello.

Peter also played in the pit for the school spring musical.

Peter stays active in the Milford community by volunteering at the town library every Saturday. He assists with shelf-reading, organizing and book-shifting.

This past summer, he attended a mission trip to the Dominican Republic where he helped build three chapels and taught a Vacation Bible School.

Milford High School Guidance Counselor Jennifer Hartford says, "Peter Bae is a gifted individual who is thoughtful, studious and good natured. He has give so much to our school academically, athletically and artistically, and I know he will continue to make similar contributions at whichever institution he attends."
