When you set foot onto the Fessenden campus, something magical happens. Our boys and parents alike will tell you about it: the “aha” moment. When all you’ve read and researched about Fessenden comes to life in a way that no one could quite explain—a way that goes beyond Science Bob’s “destruction table” or the dining hall’s mouthwatering congo bars.
Watch a boy bolt past you in the hallways, then stop to turn and hold the door for you. See a teacher engage a class of energetic students with a lesson that transports them to a foreign land. Observe as instruments are tuned, plays enacted, drawings sketched—as imaginations ignite and ideas blossom.
