Fairmont Schools is Orange County’s oldest and largest secular, co-educational preschool-12th grade private school.
Welcome to a high school experience (9th-12th grade) that is truly unique in providing multiple high-level academic specializations while also providing a wide variety of sports, arts, and extracurricular activities for students to explore. Fairmont Prep offers small school benefits with large school opportunities.
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.

A Spirit of Innovation
“We have been a Fairmont family for over ten years and one of the things that originally drew us to this school was its innovative spirit. During this pandemic, we have seen this spirit in full display! New technologies and new learning strategies have helped our children to not miss a step academically as well as socially. ”
– Shannon Tortoc, Parent
Caring + Supportive

– Denise Byrne, Parent
“The teachers are communicative, flexible, and truly care for the students and their success. These are trying times, the students have had to adapt to so many new processes and ways of learning. The teachers and staff at Fairmont have made these adjustments seamless, making minimal impact on the students.”
