Students of The Fay School learn what it means and how to become Prepared, Well-Rounded, and Articulate.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.

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.
