Fay School is a traditional yet contemporary coed independent school for students in Pre-K through grade 9. The School is composed of 355 day students from 40 Metro-West towns, along with 120 boarding students (5-day and 7-day, in grades 7-9) from 20 countries and across the U.S., creating an authentic global community just 25 miles west of Boston.
Beginning in Pre-K and Kindergarten, Fay’s educational program instills a love of learning and develops students’ skills in critical thinking, writing, reading, public speaking, quantitative analysis, and problem solving. The School’s new Innovation Center engages students in design thinking and builds their creative confidence. The School places a strong emphasis on responsibility, kindness, and respect.
In a small, closely-knit community where each student is known well, Fay students participate in a wide variety of academic, athletic, artistic, and service activities on their way to becoming confident, actively engaged citizens. Because they are so well prepared and make such a positive impact, Fay’s graduates are highly sought-after by selective secondary schools.
