While Fay@Home bears some resemblance to the Distance Learning Program we provided last spring, there are some significant differences:
- Fay@Home will offer a full, structured, synchronous school day from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm EST for all day students in Kindergarten through grade 9 and those boarding students who are in an appropriate time zone.
- The school day will include daily live lessons with Fay’s faculty. Just as with our in-person classes, these lessons will include a mix of whole-class instruction, small-group work, skill reinforcement, project time, assessments, and some one-on-one time. This is NOT a live-streaming program; rather, it is an academic program that is specifically adapted to harness the best of what Zoom rooms and interactive online learning have to offer.
- Students will continue to participate in all of the classes on their schedule, including art, music, world languages, Wellness, Creators, and P.E.
- Because we know that it is not developmentally appropriate to require students to be online for a full seven hours each day, the schedule will include breaks for recess and lunch as well as structured times to work offline on independent assignments and projects.
