Every Fay student interacts with a team of inspiring, supportive adults that includes classroom teachers; specialists in music, art, and world languages; and coaches and advisors.
Our faculty is distinguished not just in their level of expertise in their respective fields, but in their commitment to the practice of teaching. 83% of our faculty have earned master’s degrees: they are leaders in their disciplines as published authors, conference speakers, and mentors. Every summer, our teachers travel around the country—and around the world—to pursue research and continue their training so their teaching stays fresh and relevant.
Our teachers embrace creativity within structure. While our traditional preparatory program focuses on foundational skills, our faculty has the freedom to design active—and interactive—lessons that meet their students’ needs and interests.
It’s impossible to be invisible in our community of learners. Ask our faculty, and they’ll tell you that they love getting to know their students in a range of contexts—as coaches
on the playing field, dorm parents
, activity leaders, and advisors. In this way, our teachers develop a better understanding of their students, which pays off in enhanced classroom learning.
