A Close-Knit Learning Community with a Global Focus

Students attending Fairmont Preparatory Academy appreciate how intellectual, social, and emotional development comes naturally. The close-knit learning community we offer inspires the courage to make a difference in the world and fosters a passion for learning. The fact that 91 percent of graduates for the Class of 2017 who applied were accepted to a top 100* school speaks for itself in how we deliver a quality education.

We offer 25 AP courses, an IB Diploma Program, an Advanced Math Program, as well as an Advanced Science and Engineering Program, and International Business Program. Our school pride stems from a rich integration of rigorous academics, exciting multicultural enrichment, rewarding extracurricular activities, and a varsity sports program that is no stranger to CIF success.

Our low student-to-faculty ratios mean that each student receives the attention, knowledge, and care he or she needs to flourish. We value the importance of individualized academic guidance—our student: college counselor ratio is 43:1. Please note, the national average is 477:1 and the state average is 945:1. With this high level of support, students excel in academics, play multiple varsity sports, and participate in clubs and ASB. They even have opportunities to engage in robotics, science, and debate competitions along with performing arts and visual arts productions.

I encourage you to schedule a tour and learn more on how we prepare students for success in top universities and challenge them to become exemplary citizens of a global society.
