Each fall, college admissions counselors pack up their bags, board airplanes, and jump in rental cars to spread the news about their schools. The representatives spend weeks planning their visits.
Last year, Fairmont Prep welcomed over 140 colleges and universities from across the United States and beyond to meet with our students. That is nearly one college per senior on campus. With so many high schools in Southern California to visit, why do these colleges consistently come to meet with Fairmont students? Easy; our students are amazing.
Our students demonstrate not only a strong commitment to academics, but they balance it with a variety of activities. Fairmont’s individualized education and a small student-to-college-counselor ratio (40:1) provides students the resources they need to grow and succeed in their own unique fields. The counselors are able to spend time getting to know each student, encouraging them in their pursuits, and assisting them with their college and career goals. It is these relationships with students, graduates, teachers, coaches, colleges, and universities that help make Fairmont Prep the special place it is.
Our class of 2017 is living proof of student excellence, boasting a 91% acceptance rate to top 100 colleges and universities for those who applied. We predict another successful year for our class of 2018 and are looking forward to our 14th Annual Fall Open House & College Fair on Tuesday, October 10. The night will host two events, a college fair with more than 100 colleges and universities and an open house to learn more about Fairmont Preparatory Academy. We hope you can join us to see for yourself what colleges love about Fairmont.
