Prep Pride: The Fairmont Prep Difference & Open House

Fairmont Preparatory Academy will proudly open our doors for our 2018 Winter Open House next week on Thursday, January 11. Parents all over Orange County are taking advantage of the Open House season, scouting out the best schools in the area, attending events, planning tours, and hoping they find the school that will best fit their student.

At Fairmont Preparatory Academy, all students are able to succeed and pursue their passions due to individualized guidance and specialized programs. We encourage our student’s unique interests and assist them in finding ways to balance academic, athletic, artistic, and personal interests with their busy lives. We want all students to have access to these opportunities and want to share what it is that makes Fairmont Prep a great place to learn, study, make friends, and lay the foundation for an amazing future.

Enthusiastic & Passionate Teachers

The Fairmont Difference: Enthusiastic and Passionate Teachers - Open House 2018

Teachers at Fairmont Preparatory Academy make their students their number one priority, investing in their students’ lives and education. Passionate about their jobs, it makes all the difference to be in a classroom where the teacher is excited to begin the day’s lesson. Our teachers make every effort to assure all of our students understand the material and make time when a student needs extra help understanding a concept or studying for the next test. Fairmont teachers even stay after school to offer free tutoring as part of our Prep Plus Program.

Welcoming & Engaging Environment

Fairmont students excel in all areas, but we are especially proud of their big hearts. Our students take part in a number of different clubs and activities that give back to the community and make others feel loved and welcome. Our ASB members, in particular, have made a huge effort to show love to their community, hosting a prom for senior citizens, and raising awareness for bullying prevention during National Bullying Prevention Awareness month.

The Class of 2017 served as a great example for their younger peers by graduating with 4,041 hours of community service beyond their required 9,760. Fairmont students also give back through on-campus student organizations like Key Club and Red Cross Club.

This close-knit and caring community of students and teachers allows Fairmont Prep to be a home away from home for our students.

Competitive Athletics Program

The Fairmont Difference: Competitive Athletics - Open House 2018

Fairmont is known for its academics, but our athletic students excel on the field, court, and even in the pool. Fairmont Prep offers 15 CIF sports, including cross country, football, tennis, golf, basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, swim, and cheer. The Fairmont Prep Huskies continue to make us proud in athletics and have sent students to continue to play in college.

Highly Individualized Experience

One of Fairmont Prep’s best qualities is the amount of time and energy our counselors give to our students as they prepare their academic and college plans. Our counselors are here to work with students on their academic goals, help them plan for the future, and guide them through the college search process to ensure they have some amazing college options. In fact, last year, our 152 seniors were admitted to 228 unique colleges and universities earning over $2.2 million in renewable scholarship offers.

Academic Rigor

The Fairmont Difference: Academic Rigor - Open House 2018

Known for our academics, Fairmont Prep students leave for college well prepared. Fairmont’s College Prep curriculum prepares students for the rigors of college courses by teaching them how to study, think critically, and stay organized. Students are able to individualize their academic experience with compelling and challenging programs like Advanced Placement and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Our arts programs have prepared students to attend the best art schools across the United States. Fairmont’s Advanced Science & Engineering Program gives students unparalleled opportunities to explore STEM subjects in high school, and the International Business Program continues to expose students to the curriculum of a collegiate business degree.

Opportunity and Access

It’s our teachers, environment, programs, and counselors that have made Fairmont ideal for student success. Fairmont teachers, counselors, and fellow students are always accessible for assistance and guidance. Students have access to academic and college counseling support, skill-building extracurriculars, rigorous academic programs, and the opportunity to attend their dream colleges and kick-start successful careers.

This Open House season we invite you to join us at Fairmont Preparatory Academy to find out why the “Best Private High School” in Orange County stands out from the rest. Whether your student wants to continue their passion or develop a new one, Fairmont will stand beside them and give them those opportunities. See the Fairmont difference for yourself, and join us for our Open House! RSVP today!
