The Fessenden School is an independent boys’ boarding and day school for Pre-Kindergarten through 9th grade, located in West Newton, MA. For more than 100 years, The Fessenden School has offered state-of-the-art facilities, curriculum, and programs specifically designed to meet the educational needs of boys.

In our Lower School, with attention from teachers who foster a love of learning, boys play, engage, and grow. By demonstrating kindness and respect, faculty and staff nurture these characteristics in our dynamic, curious, and intelligent boys.

In our Middle and Upper Schools, boarders and day students alike are immersed in a diverse culture that comes from a campus community of local, national, and international students. Fessenden has created an academic experience that both nurtures and encourages boys to venture beyond their comfort zones. As a result, boys strive, interact, and claim their identities with both confidence and humility.
