The Foundation for a Meaningful Life
Kindergarten - Grade 9 in Southborough, MA

Academics at Fay

Fay is organized into three divisions:

Primary School (Kindergarten 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 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.
