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.
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:
