School Gallery


Fay School is an independent, coeducational day and boarding school, located on a 66-acre (270,000 m2) campus some 25 miles (40 km) from Boston in Southborough, Massachusetts, and is the oldest junior boarding school in the United States. It has 475 students enrolled from Pre-kindergarten through grade 9; the boarding program (grades 7–9) enrolls 120 students from throughout the United States and more than 20 foreign countries. Fay opened its Primary School (Pre-K to Grade Two) in 2010 and moved its 6th grade into the Lower School program (now 3rd to 6th) in the 2012–13 school year. As a day and boarding school for students in Kindergarten through Grade Nine, Fay School is a community built on five core values: academic excellence; honorable conduct; dedicated service; earnest effort; and wellness of mind, body, and spirit. While the school has grown and evolved since its founding in 1866, our central purpose has remained constant. This top boarding school provides a broad and challenging program that empowers students to discover their talents, develop their intellectual abilities, establish essential academic skills and knowledge, and define their moral character.
