San Juan Capistrano

Fairmont’s newest family member, our San Juan Capistrano (SJC) campus, serves students from preschool – 12th grade. Nestled in the rolling hills of South Orange County just minutes from the San Juan Capistrano mission, the SJC campus caters to scholar-athletes, preparing students to excel in athletics, while pursuing high academic standards.

San Juan Capistrano Campus

The first campus in South Orange County, SJC capitalizes on Fairmont’s acclaimed curriculum, guiding students through individual academic, emotional, and social journeys every step of the way. SJC has the distinction of being one of only a handful of private schools in Orange County to provide the full continuum of grades (P-12) on one campus. It is also home to Fairmont Athletic Academy, an innovative program that incorporates training for elite middle school athletes into the course of their regular school day.

    San Juan Capistrano Head of School

    Ms. Dana Vasquez

    With over 20 years experience in education spanning elementary through high school, Ms. Vasquez is well-suited to serve as the founding Head of School of our newest and only P-12 campus — San Juan Capistrano. Previously, she earned her administrative experience as an Assistant Principal at a private school in LA County and a Principal at another elite Orange County private school. She is thrilled to return to the Fairmont family, where she once served on our Education Team as a Curriculum and Instructional Specialist. Her aspirations and goals for our South County campus are impressive, as is her commitment to bringing them to fruition. Ms. Vasquez holds a BA and an MA in English, a K-12 Multiple Subject Credential, a Single Subject Credential in English, and is working on her EdD in Educational Leadership. In her spare time, you may find her at the beach, kayaking and paddle boarding. She loves to travel and is an avid reader.

    Celebrating Preschool

    Fairmont’s preschool program challenges young learners to become independent and helps them become strong readers and writers. Children who go through this exemplary private school program will have mastered key literacy and math competencies by the time they enter kindergarten. They participate in hands-on activities and gain new levels of exposure that allow them to excel beyond their peers at other schools. Equally important, all of this is accomplished in a safe and caring environment, where teachers place as much emphasis on nurturing children’s social and emotional wellness as they do on academic progress.

    Fairmont College Acceptances

    Year after year, Fairmont’s students are accepted to the nation’s top colleges and universities, preparing them to go out and make a difference in their world. Here is just a small sampling of the institutions our graduates have attended:
