What Matters at Fay

The Foundation for a Meaningful Life

A Fay education provides the foundation for a meaningful life.

Ask a teacher, parent, secondary school admission officer, or one of our alumni to describe a Fay student, and here’s what they’ll tell you:
 
Fay students are exceptionally well prepared. They are incisive thinkers, creative problem solvers, strong writers, and confident public speakers. They have strong study skills and know what they need to do in order to be successful in and out of the classroom.
 
Fay students get involved in their communities, as athletes, artists, musicians, helpers, leaders, and friends. They know how to interact effectively in a world of difference and are curious about the world around them.
 
Fay students understand what it means to show character, whether it’s diving into a service project or supporting a friend in need. They understand that manners matter—they remember to hold the door for others and have mastered the art of the firm handshake.
 
Most importantly, Fay students love to learn. They embrace intellectual risks and see no limits to what they can achieve, and they find joy in striving to be their best selves.
 
When students graduate from Fay, they are equipped with the foundational tools they will need to live lives of meaning and to make a positive difference in the world.

"Fay students walk away with a deep understanding of who they are as learners - their strengths, their passions, and the strategies they can use to constantly improve."
