Mission Statement
 

The Fay School is a nonsectarian, not-for-profit, co-educational school in which children of diverse talents and backgrounds with strong academic abilities are offered a high-quality education in a secure, enriching and academically challenging environment. Here children learn and grow intellectually, physically, socially, ethically, and artistically while developing self-confidence and a lifelong love of learning through an active partnership among educators, parents, and students.

 
Core Values

At The Fay School, our core values center on providing an educational experience that ensures our students are Prepared, Well-Rounded, and Articulate–three essential cornerstones for success as they move forward in life.

Prepared.

We prepare students for entrance into and success within Houston’s finest middle and upper schools. Our progressive and rigorous curriculum is exclusively preparatory in nature and our graduates are successful throughout the city of Houston.

Well-Rounded.

Our well-rounded students are grounded in an appreciation of community and global awareness. Our “Fay Family” is central to the ethos of our international culture and the diversity of thought and experiences our students enjoy.

Articulate.

We believe communication is paramount to success and we teach our students to articulate their thoughts, values, and aspirations. At Fay, success is found in our students’ poised and compelling communication with peers and adults alike.

Adding to the rigor of our academic program, The Fay School’s most distinguishing factor is our Leadership Development Program. Grounded in both emotional intelligence and human capital strategy, The Fay School’s vision is to deliberately build and educate the next generation of leaders for our world. Our students experience leadership training and curriculum typically reserved for Fortune 500 companies and they graduate from Fay with skills that will serve them for a lifetime.
