BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN BOYS (Pre-K - 9)

What does "the best" mean? The unabridged edition of Webster's Dictionary offers no less than twelve meanings for the word "best." At Fessenden, we offer even more. We define it as the unique qualities inherent in each boy. To us, "the best" means discovering the diverse strengths and developing the full potential in each boy.

Our mission is to teach, nurture and celebrate growing boys while striving to develop balance in mind, heart and body. The foundation of our philosophy is providing a character education that embraces the values of honesty, compassion and respect in an inclusive community. In our view, an all-boys school is the ideal setting in which boys can mature academically, socially, artistically and physically.
