FA Upper School


"The primary goal of the Upper School is to prepare students to excel at the college or university of their choice. In essence, this means offering a palette of academic, athletic, and artistic challenges; teaching the analytical and organizational skills required to face them; and giving the encouragement and assistance needed to overcome them. A belief in individual and collective responsibility, with a corresponding call for honor and service, makes the Upper School a community of scholars and citizens who are prepared not only for the demands of higher education, but who strive to contribute to society."
- Head of Upper School Tony Durso
