Elementary Education Program
With over 60 years of educational experience, students of Fairmont Private Schools receive individualized attention and benefit from an advanced curriculum. As a result, they accelerate in math and language arts.
Fairmont values the importance of specialty teachers who focus entirely on important subjects such as computer science, math, science, robotics, debate, theatre, art, music, physical education, and student government. Fairmont teachers blend technology and tradition for a curriculum that helps students at all levels advance in their education. The individualized learning paths developed for each child are based on testing, teacher interactions, and the student’s unique talents. The low student to teacher ratio fosters close connections with students for better guidance and academic success.

All Fairmont students are taught the traits of Character Counts! with an emphasis on fostering social-emotional development and peer relationships. We incorporate these traits into all that we do and recognize students when they display them.
Character Counts! is a framework centered on basic values called the Six Pillars of Character, which are highlighted throughout the year including: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
