Fay School was founded in 1866 and is the oldest junior boarding school in the United States. Fay is located in Southborough, Massachusetts, on a beautiful and safe 63-acre campus just 25 miles from Boston.
Our academic program is broad and balanced, and enhanced by a global perspective. In addition to the core courses of mathematics, science, English, and history, students take art, music, world languages, and courses in our Center for Creativity & Design. Upper School students also participate in interscholastic athletics each season, a public speaking program, and various co-curricular clubs. While the School has grown and evolved since its founding, our central purpose has remained constant: we provide our students with the foundation for a meaningful life.
