Headmaster Welcome

“You will find some of Southern California’s finest teachers at Fairmont Prep.”

A Close-Knit Learning Community with a Global Focus

Thank you for your interest in Fairmont Preparatory Academy. As the premier prep academy in Southern California, Fairmont Prep prides itself on providing students a world-class education, consisting of individualized academic paths designed to play to the different strengths of all of our young men and women. We work together toward the overall goal of placement into the elite colleges and universities throughout the nation and throughout the world. Fairmont Prep continues to excel, as evidenced by the 91 percent of last year’s graduates who applied and were admitted to top 100 colleges and universities (as ranked by U.S. News & World Report).

With a vibrant campus culture, students are immersed in opportunities to engage in a multitude of clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities, including speech and debate, visual and performing arts, and robotics. We encourage each student who walks through our doors to pave their path toward success, and to create his or her own unique journey to pursue their passion and thrive — both in the classroom and in life.

Our counselors and teachers spend countless hours getting to know our students and helping them build their levels of confidence. We challenge our students to raise the bar, to believe in themselves, and to trust that they can achieve the goals they set.

I encourage you to schedule a tour to learn more about how Fairmont Prep helps students become the individuals they strive to be.
