We are delighted that you are considering The Fessenden School for your son! Steeped in over 100 years of experience in educating boys, our philosophy of “nurture, then challenge” successfully marries a strong academic program with a joyful, diverse, and inclusive community that embodies our core values of honesty, compassion, and respect.
Fessenden is far more than a collection of classrooms: it’s a home for academic, athletic, and artistic adventures of all types—set on 41 beautiful acres just 10 minutes from Boston. Nearly 200 people, including students and faculty/staff families, live right here on campus. Our highly skilled teachers, coaches, and advisors are passionate about what they do and understand elementary and middle-school-aged boys.
While most of our students enter the school at Pre-K
, or Grade 4
, we occasionally have openings at other grade levels. Please contact our admissions office for more information about openings in Grades 1-3.
From our admissions team, to our parents, to the students themselves, every member of our community helps bring the Fessenden experience to life. Visit campus and see for yourself.
