Fay School is a traditional yet contemporary independent school that teaches enduring skills for a changing world. Founded in 1866 and located twenty-five miles from Boston, Fay is a coeducational day and boarding school for students in pre-kindergarten through grade nine. Our boarding program (grades seven through nine) serves one hundred students from throughout the United States and more than fifteen foreign countries, forming a truly multicultural school community.
Through small classes and individual attention, Fay’s challenging and supportive learning environment provides thorough preparation for secondary school. Our educational program establishes a solid foundation in reading, writing, critical thinking, quantitative analysis, and problem solving; it also emphasizes effort, responsibility, kindness, and respect. By participating in a wide variety of academic, athletic, and artistic activities, Fay students come to understand their own unique strengths and talents and become confident, actively-engaged citizens who take initiative and assume leadership roles.
Fay provides a comprehensive educational experience for families who desire a school that is committed to excellence and passionate about educating the whole child. We seek students who will embrace the School’s core values of Academic Excellence, Earnest Effort, Honorable Conduct, Dedicated Service, and Wellness of Mind, Body, and Spirit.
