Why Fantis

The A. Fantis School has a rich history of developing boys and girls into upstanding young men and women ready to contribute to their community and the broader society. Our graduates matriculate from premier high schools and universities in New York City and beyond. A. Fantis is a small, tight-knit community, where generations gather in school and church as students, alumni, faculty, board members, parents and grandparents.

After-school Clubs Return!!

After two long years, we are thrilled to have after-school clubs return to A. Fantis School! We have partnered with premier vendors to provide our students with an amazing after-school experience. From soccer and tennis to ceramics and comics, there is something for everyone and of every age! The full menu is available under the Parents Tab.

New Family Meet & Greet

New Fantis Families can join the PTO at A. Fantis School this month for an informal meet-and-greet. There will be a light breakfast, free play, and a school tour!

The most impressive for us was how much the children loved being at Fantis and how it has shaped them as people and the trajectory of their lives. Our daughter is so incredibly happy and faces each day with such enthusiasm. She gets up so early to get into school and be the first there. She has grown into a child we are so proud of. What we realize more than the excellence in the academics is the nurturing, loving, safe environment which has guided her since she was three. There is no way to fail when you have so many hands ready to catch you.
