Fairmont Schools offers 2+1 or Senior Year in America programs for partner high schools. Students come to Fairmont in the US for their final year of high school.

  • Study in the US with Fairmont teachers and work with a Fairmont college counselor
  • Learn and grow in an experiential learning program that immerses you in US culture
  • Visit colleges, take part in community service, and learn in our classrooms and outside of them as you visit local art venues, attend concerts, hike, explore the cosmos at observatories, and learn more about California’s rich history and natural resources
  • Students in American programs are better prepared for college in the US
  • As more Chinese students apply to US colleges (up 11% from last year), Chinese schools will need to do even more to prepare students to be competitive with the over 300,000 students applying from the PRC. Fairmont has a proven track record of success preparing students from China and the US for college success.
  • Fairmont has worked with international students for over 20 years and we have over 60 years of experience in education in California. Fairmont has been working with Chinese high schools since 2009. We have consistent top college acceptances from Fairmont’s Chinese programs and from our US schools.
