Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to submit a completed application before I visit the School?

My child is a good student, but I have heard that there are many benefits to repeating a grade when starting at an independent school. How do I decide which grade my child should apply for?

I just found out about Fay and I want to apply but it is after February 1. Do I have to wait until next year?

Two days after my child submitted the application to Fay, he won an award. Can I call the Admission Office to add it to the file, or is it too late?

How will I receive my child's admission decision?

I was accepted to Fay but can't attend. May I defer my admission to next year?

I have already applied to Fay once. May I re-apply?

I definitely want my child to go to Fay, but I can’t decide whether to apply for Pre-Kindergarten this year or wait another year and apply for Kindergarten. Is my child more likely to be accepted in a certain grade?

I live far away. May I interview via Skype?

I live abroad, and I am unable to find an available seat for the TOEFL or TOEFL, Jr. in my area until January. Will this hurt my chances of admission?

I study at an international school. Do I still need to submit a TOEFL or TOEFL, Jr. test score?

I’ve heard the TOEFL, Jr. is an easier test than the TOEFL, but it’s not offered in my country. Will getting a low score on the TOEFL hurt my chances of getting accepted?
