Breakfast with a Counselor
Breakfast with a Counselor is an opportunity for parents and guardians
to informally meet over breakfast with the Prep's counselors to discuss
topics in their student's academic life. We hope you will have an
opportunity to join us!
Beginning on Monday, September 7th, the choir program will be hosting
its first fundraiser. Snacking in the USA is a great way to support
choir students and eat delicious food. Snacks range from trail mix to
candy. Click here to see the brochure. Each bag is only $7 and your
support helps the choir program! Please contact Ms. No at
firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to place an order.

It’s only the first week of school and we’re already receiving numerous
requests from dozens of colleges and universities to visit Fairmont Prep
this fall. We host three kinds of college visits. The first is a
daytime visit when college admissions representatives come to Fairmont
Prep and meet with small groups of seniors interested in that particular
institution. These meetings usually take place in the counseling center
and students are informed about them through Naviance. Over 80 colleges
visited the campus last year to meet with our students! The second type
of visit occurs when an admissions counselor is invited as a guest
speaker. Examples of this include counselors from pharmacy schools and
health science institutions who visit the science classes. As well as,
admissions counselors from art conservatories who visit the AP art
classes. Finally, we have the annual College Fair which will take place
on Tuesday, October 13th at 6:00 pm. Last year over 100 different
colleges and universities from around the world participated in this
event. The Counseling Department encourages students to take advantage
of these wonderful opportunities to meet with college representatives
and learn about a wide range of educational institutions.
