From The Fessenden School

Imagine an educational experience like no other for your child in Pre-K through Grade 9. Minutes from downtown Boston, a stunning 41-acre campus and one-of-a-kind educational experience awaits your son.

‭Fessenden is a place where tried and true educational ‭techniques are woven seamlessly with play and discovery. Where the ‭focus is on the individual child - helping him develop the‭ skills he needs to navigate the world with enthusiasm and curiosity. The energy and ‭excitement is palpable from the moment you step onto ‭campus—and at the moment a young boy begins his Fessenden journey.
