Accepted Student Checklist - Boarding Students
Welcome to Fay School!
Congratulations on your child’s acceptance to Fay—we can’t wait for your family to join our community! Though September may seem far in the future, it will be here before you know it! Here’s a checklist of what to expect in the coming months.
Submit your deposit and enrollment contract to reserve your child’s place in the class. Details and deadlines are in your student’s acceptance letter. Your child is not fully enrolled until both the signed contract and deposit are returned to Fay.
