The Fairmont College Promise

We promise students who graduate from Fairmont Preparatory Academy will receive acceptance to one of the top 100 colleges and universities (as defined by U.S. News & World Report) and scholarship money from top universities. These acceptances reflect academic standings of Fairmont students *quartiles one through four. Both Top College Promise and College Scholarship Promise can be combined up to 100 percent of the tuition paid for Fairmont Preparatory Academy if both promises are not met. Fairmont would then contribute that amount as scholarship funds to the college or universities the student chooses to attend. The Fairmont College Promise applies to students attending Fairmont Private Schools from at least 7th through 12th grade. We believe the longer a student attends Fairmont Private Schools the greater success they will have in college.

*Fairmont defines our quartiles each graduating year by dividing our senior class into four equal groups based on weighted and cumulative GPAs.
