Fay is organized into three divisions:Primary School
(Pre-K through grade two)Lower School
(grades three through six)Upper School
(grades seven through nine)
Within each division, teachers work closely across grades and across disciplines to create a rich program that teaches foundational skills while also supporting critical thinking and creativity. Fay teachers believe in making learning "serious fun" - engaging, meaningful, authentic, and appropriately challenging.
Fay’s traditional curriculum is balanced with innovation in every discipline. The School’s new Innovation Lab
is the home base for a Creator’s Curriculum, where students in every grade level learn to design, build, and create. The Lab is a fully-equipped “maker’s space” that includes hand tools for woodworking, 3D printers, laser cutters, and computers equipped with programming and design software. Additionally, iPads are issued to every ninth grader as a learning and organizational tool.
