Grades 5-9

Admission Events

We are delighted that you are considering a Fessenden education!

Due to COVID-19, Fessenden’s campus is currently only open to students, faculty, and essential staff. Therefore, for the foreseeable future, our admissions process will be virtual, and there will be no in-person Admissions events. Instead, starting October 1 and continuing through the end of January, we will be offering weekly virtual tours for families who would like to learn more about Fessenden. The overview of the virtual tour schedule is included below.  To register for the grade-specific tour of your choice, please visit  

If you can't make any of the scheduled events, please feel free to contact us to schedule a visit at a time that works for you.

Also, if you would like to receive an admissions packet, please complete an inquiry form and we will send your packet right away.
