Global Community

Our students go to school with classmates from across the street - and across the world.

Walk the halls of Fay School, and you’ll see global learning in action. Our boarding students come from across the United States and over 20 countries, and Upper School students have the unique opportunity to make meaningful friendships with peers from around the world. Through our cross-grade partnerships, our Primary and Lower School students also benefit from our international students’ experiences and perspectives.
 
You can see our focus on global learning with our comprehensive world languages program. Students study French and Spanish throughout Primary and Lower School; by Upper School, students can also choose to study Mandarin and Latin.
 
We believe that the best way to understand the “global village” is to see it first-hand—so travel is an important part of our program. Every spring, Upper School students have the opportunity to participate in teacher-led educational trips abroad, to destinations such as China, France, Italy, and Spain.

Taste of Nations

Taste of Nations is an annual tradition where Fay students, parents, and faculty cook meals from their home countries and share them at a schoolwide food tasting event that brings the whole community together. Last year, over 40 countries were represented at Taste of Nations!
“I loved going to school with students from around the world. I made friends with kids from Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. It was exciting learning about what makes us different, as well as what we have in common.” - Jillian Carroll ’15, Atlanta, Georgia
