We were excited to have the opportunity to connect with Fairmont Prep senior Julia Tao and learn about her organization Agape Belize Cure (ABC). Her dedication exemplifies a level of leadership and lasting impact that inspires us and that we are proud to have within our student body.
In the spirit of service and community care, Fairmont students have actively responded to the coronavirus and are working to help our communities through this difficult time. They’ve been making things like masks distributed across the country, thank you cards for first responders, notes to seniors, and even games and exercise videos for families to enjoy and learn while at home. It is so encouraging to see our students Paws for a Cause!
Fairmont is honored to be rated by Newsweek as Orange County’s top private school for the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program in 2019. The recognition is for our Advanced Science and Engineering Program (ASEP), which offers all STEM courses, as well as a number of additional opportunities, within a collegiate approach. The honor is in no small part due to our incredible teachers — all of whom are all trained in STEM, are professionals in their fields, and have a research background — including Ms. Jaya Leslie.
Fairmont Prep senior Leela Gala has been serving children in shelters and underprivileged communities for many years. In her freshman year, she decided to create an opportunity for other Fairmont students to participate and created a club that provides food for a children’s shelter. With the help of teacher Mrs. Kunkle, the group grew to such a degree that by Leela’s sophomore year, Leela set the group up as a 501(c)(3) called Food Served Here.
