About Fay

We take tremendous pride in guiding your child to becoming young people who are: PreparedWell-Rounded, and Articulate.

These three core values, you can expect, are the realized outcomes that continue to justify our educational model and philosophy.

Prepared: Your child will inherit a world that is globalized, connected, diverse, and rapidly evolving. The Fay School prepares your child to meet that challenge in a culturally and ethnically diverse learning environment. Our innovative teaching and learning techniques are future-focused and collaborative in nature. Graduates of The Fay School are intrinsically motivated creative problem solvers who excel academically.

Well-Rounded: The ever-evolving world your child will inherit will require emotional intelligence to be successful: flexibility to successfully navigate unexpected change, confidence in times of ambiguity, and resilience in the face of persistent challenges. Well-roundedness emerges when children have opportunities to pivot their thinking in response to obstacles, when educators support, guide, and empower students to tackle any task at hand, especially when there is no easy or obvious answer.

Articulate: Articulate interpersonal and intrapersonal communication styles drive how your child will impact the future world and those who they lead. Inclusive and specific word choice, personal presentation, and cultural fluency are paramount to your child’s leadership in tomorrow’s world. The future-focused learning experiences on The Fay School’s outdoor-oriented campus expose your child to these communication building blocks on a daily basis and in dynamic ways.

Anchored to the vigor of our core values and the real-world application of authentic learning, The Fay School’s Leadership Development Program distinguishes it from all the other schools in Houston. Your child will 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.

The Fay School’s vision is to deliberately build and educate the next generation of leaders for our world.

In the Spring of 2021, when we were celebrating our 30th year, we created this video, summarizing how the original Fay House homestead evolved into an academic oasis in the heart of Houston, Texas.

From our Head of School:

Marie Fay Evnochides always envisioned that The Fay School would be a place where "children come first," and your children benefit from that founding vision in myriad ways. All you have to do is drive onto our outdoor-oriented campus to see for yourself, read our blog posts that highlight their leadership development, or do a scan of our social media for a quick dose of this reality.
