The Foundation for a Meaningful Life
幼儿园 - Grade 9 in Southborough, MA


Fay students learn how to lead.

It’s important to learn the art of l我hip, which includes thinking strategically, 建立共识, 被包容, and showing poise and confidence.
We begin planting the seeds for l我hip in the earliest years, by giving students in our Primary and 较低的学校 divisions numerous opportunities to practice l我hip skills. They work collaboratively in small groups—such as when first graders research different penguins species and create presentations for their classmates. They lead their peers—such as when the sixth graders coordinate discussion groups for the third, 第四, and fifth graders as part of the 较低的学校’s “One School, 一本书”研究. And they practice speaking in front of classmates and teachers in structured, 支持设置, in all-school meetings and as part of the public speaking program that begins in grade three.
As the oldest students at Fay, bet36365官网的第七, 第八, and ninth graders become the l我 of our school, among their peers as well as for the younger students in the Primary and 较低的学校. As role models in the classroom, on the playing field, 在宿舍, and as part of our schoolwide Color Competition, students learn how to rally their peers, 领导一个团队, and see a project through to completion.
Our 幼儿园-ninth grade structure enables our middle school-aged students to take on l我hip roles that would normally fall to upperclassmen in a 7-12 or 9-12 school setting. Our students learn l我hip by actually leading—and by the time they graduate, they’re equipped with an invaluable life skill that will serve them well in secondary school and beyond.
