Serious fun at Fay means academic challenge that is authentic, engaging, and deeply absorbing. Fay teachers know that when students believe that their learning matters, they give their all.
At Fay, it’s cool to be curious. Visit our campus, and you’ll see how students embrace challenge and inquiry because it’s woven into the fabric of our school culture. In the Primary School, you’ll see kindergartners in a combined science/art class, recording measurements and painting watercolors of sunflowers that they’ve planted in the garden of our outdoor classroom. In the Lower School, you’ll find sixth graders learning the elements of programming as they design inventions powered by circuit boards. Meanwhile, in the Upper School, students are using the principles of geometry to recreate ancient Roman arches, while seventh grade English students perform dramatic readings of Romeo and Juliet in the sunken garden. School days at Fay are busy—but they’re never boring.

“Fay sparked my daughter’s love for learning—from the foreign language offerings in Primary School, to the wealth of music and art, to the interscholastic sports starting in fifth grade. She can’t wait to go to school each day.”
