Distance Learning English Intensive:

Distance Learning English Intensive is a virtual version of our English Immersion program that offers a combination of daily live sessions, pre-recorded lessons, graded assignments, and hands-on activities.

FAQ

List of 5 items.

  • Where do students live?

    Students stay in double or triple rooms in our dorms in an intimate, home-style setting with a common room and shared bathrooms. All rooms are air-conditioned. Teachers and counselors live in the dorms with the students, providing 24-hour supervision and care. 

    For English Immersion students, since the program is language immersion based, it is important that students have every opportunity to speak English to practice their skills. Therefore, we strive to match each student with a roommate who speaks a different language so that all are encouraged to speak English.
  • What type of visa do students need?

    International students attending our overnight programs are able to enter the United States on a B-2 visitor visa. A visitor visa (B-2) is sufficient to participate in our program because, according to the U.S. government, a person is allowed to enroll in a recreational enrichment course of 18 hours or less. Please contact Sam Renshaw for more details at srenshaw@fayschool.org or 508-490-8247.

    In the unfortunate event that your child is denied a visa and unable to enter the United States, you will receive a full refund for any tuition/expenses paid.
  • Is there transportation from the airport to campus?

    We can arrange transportation to and from Fay School from Boston–Logan Airport and New York–JFK Aiport. It is recommended that you travel to Boston-Logan. All airport travel fees will be paid using the student’s incidental account. 
  • Which immunizations and exams are required to attend?

    All students participating in our overnight programs must be examined by a licensed physician within the 13 months leading up to the start of the program. 

    All students must be fully immunized under U.S. Department of Public Health requirements prior to attending the English Immersion Program. It is the responsibility of the family to submit proof of all immunizations (in English), with all documents signed by a licensed physician, before the student arrives. Without this proof, your child cannot attend the program. 

    If you are having difficulty obtaining certain immunizations prior to the start of the program, we can send you a link to a local clinic that may be able to assist. All students must have proof of all the required immunizations before arriving on campus. Please contact the Fay Health Office for more information at 508-490-8228.
  • Can family members visit campus?

    If parents wish to take students off campus, they must make the appropriate arrangements with the School. It is important that students become fully integrated into our programs, develop relationships with their peers and dorm parents, and also immerse themselves fully in the programs; we ask that families respect our visitation policy. We ask all students to participate in all our activities; however, we allow for visits on the following occasions:
     
    Weekdays: Monday through Thursday between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. Please call or email to arrange visits with the Director.
     
    Weekends: Students enjoy participating in our weekend activities, so please call or email the Director in advance to arrange visits and to confirm the best times when your child will be on campus from Friday afternoon through Sunday evening.
