Community creates character, and Fessenden is uniquely suited to help boys develop strong character. We’re a “24-hour school” with more than 100 boarders and 40 families living on campus. Through 24/7 immersion in a respectful, compassionate, and selfless culture, our residential community sets a high standard for the rest of the school.
Character education is intentional and all-encompassing to the student’s experience. It comprises four major components:
- Strengthening emotional/physical well-being
- Promoting service learning
- Teaching core values
- Developing leadership skills
Self-reflecting, embracing kindness, developing and demonstrating empathy--and doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. That’s character education at Fessenden.
