|We welcome all admissions inquiries and invite you to see Fessenden for yourself. An onsite visit is the best way to get an accurate sense of the campus and our community within. Whether it is our physical plant or the spirit of boys in common endeavor, we hope you’ll see something that helps impart our true nature, sense of pride and commitment to long-standing values.|
Fessenden admits day students into Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 7 and boarding students into Grades 5 through 9. Applicants for Pre-Kindergarten must be at least four years old and applicants for Kindergarten must be at least five years old by September 1 of the year they begin at Fessenden. Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Fourth Grade applicants must visit the school twice, with one being a group visit day. Boys applying to Fessenden Grades 5 through 9, day or boarding, visit the school for an interview and campus tour with their parents. The application, school transcript, teacher evaluations, testing and other required materials complete an applicant's file.
The application deadline for day students is February 1st. The Admissions Committee will then review completed day student applications and a decision will be sent to parents in writing on March 10th. Additional day student applications are reviewed upon completion and are subject to space availability. Boarding students are admitted on a rolling basis.
