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!

Choir Fundraiser
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 sno@fairmontschools.com for more details or to place an order.

College Counseling
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.

Transportation Department News
The Transportation Department now offers all forms online! Visit http://www.fairmontschools.com/fairmont-transportation.html to access request and cancellation forms. Additionally, if your student needs a temporary change in transportation arrangements, please let Transportation know so that they can assist you!
