Character Education Program

Fairmont students (P-8) develop a solid foundation of character and ethics for life through discussions and activities based on the six pillars of Character Counts. These pillars include trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. These important qualities are encouraged throughout the day in the classroom, athletic fields and in other settings.

Community Service

At Fairmont Private Schools, we believe that students can benefit greatly—both academically and emotionally—from volunteering their time to make the community and world a better place.

When students get involved in community service, they not only help others — they expand their worldview, develop empathy and leadership skills, and realize how their actions can have a positive impact. They also return to the classroom realizing how what they’re learning applies to the real world, which reinvigorates their passion for learning.

Clubs

Creating well-rounded students extends far beyond the four walls of the classroom. Fairmont offers a variety of extracurricular activities and social clubs for their students to meet like-minded friends and explore new interests. Developing social skills or soft skills is an essential foundation in education today.

These activities offer opportunities for students to learn the values of teamwork, individual and group responsibility, physical strength and endurance, competition, time management, diversity, and a sense of culture and community. Extracurricular activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and the the cornerstone in a well-rounded education.

Art

Performing Arts: Creative expression is a vital component in a well-rounded education. The performing arts programs – like dramatic theater, comedy, choir, and orchestra – allow students to take part in multiple performances each year. Though the arts, students learn transferable skills like public speaking and making eye contact.

Visual Arts: At Fairmont, we believe in providing quality art education to our students. Art is one of the universal languages our students can communicate. Fairmont students have gained vast experience learning the visual arts process. They have also earned numerous accolades and awards from a variety of exhibitions and competitions including local shows, state competitions, and even The Laguna Beach Art Festival.

Athletics

Participating in Fairmont sports is more than participating in practices and games. As members of our sports teams, students are given the opportunity to learn organization, time management, teamwork and leadership skills. More importantly, the athletes develop lasting friendships and fond memories.

Fairmont teams participate in the Developmental Sports League (DSL) and the Tri-Way League. At Fairmont Prep, junior varsity and varsity teams play in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) league.
