The Boys Lab at Fairfield Country Day School advances best practices in teaching boys through professional development, programmatic innovation, parent education, and strategic partnerships.
- Relational teaching and learning
“Before a boy will learn from you, he must be willing to learn for you. Every boy is known and cared for.”
“Our boys learn to manage themselves. They are able to self-regulate emotions and behavior.”
Centering the FCDS Core Competencies––our school’s articulation of 21st-century skills.
- Project-based learning (PBL)
“PBL emphasizes teamwork, creativity, and presentation skills. It’s real-world and active. PBL is a boy-centered approach to teaching and learning.”
