Coaches (or has coached) Girls Varsity Basketball, Boys Varsity Basketball, Boys Golf, Girls Golf, Cross Country, Swimming and Diving. Fairmont Preparatory Academy Class of 2017 alumna Christina Li credits much of the collegiate success she has had at Stevens Institute of Technology to her experience at Fairmont. Recently named the Empire 8 Rookie of the Week for her accomplishments on the basketball court, Li continues to strive toward achieving the goals she has set for herself. As a student at Fairmont Prep, Li had opportunities to take part in a variety of activities outside of basketball, including as a cast member in three theatre productions and as a pianist for the choir. She was also able to challenge herself with the many courses and academic programs offered to her at Fairmont— such as the International Business Program— that helped to prepare her for her studies as a computer science major at Stevens and to provide her with a glimpse of what life is like in the business world. Li is grateful for her time as a student at Fairmont Prep, as it allowed her to step out of her comfort zone and be part of new extracurricular activities that she never knew she would try. "The most beneficial advice I can offer [to Fairmont students] is not to always be content with where you are," Li said. "Challenge yourself, try new activities, and don't be afraid to showcase who you are.". "I was offered the opportunity to work at the best private school around, so I jumped at the chance to join a great faculty and teach some of California's brightest student athletes. Northeastern University graduate and member of Fairmont Preparatory Academy's Class of 2013 graduating class Christine Boutros knows the value of a Fairmont education and how it helped prepare her for the academic rigors she would face in college, particularly in her science classes. The Advanced Placement courses she took in high school allowed her to forego many first-year courses and have the opportunity to take upper-level classes early on in her studies. As a result, she finished her requirements ahead of schedule and was able to work full time in a lab, conducting neuroscience research for two years during college. Boutros received her bachelor's degree in behavioral neuroscience in 2017 and is currently a research technician at Harvard Medical School. In the spring of 2018, she will take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and apply to M.D./Ph.D. programs in her pursuit of a career in neurology. Thanks to her time at Fairmont Prep— even though she did not always see them at the time— she now fully understands the possibilities available to her in her career. "When I look back on the conversations I had with my teachers [at Fairmont], I realize that they know so much more about the things you can do with your future," she said. "Utilizing that life experience that our teachers have is extremely important." Boutros also knows that it is beneficial for students to believe that they can achieve more than they would have imagined before attending Fairmont. "Don't under sell yourself," she advised. "Apply to colleges, even the ones you're not 100 percent sure you'll get in to. I think we don't have a very good feel for the people we're competing with, but you're actually in a very good position to get in to very good schools.". Winner of: 8 League Championships (Girls Basketball), 5 League Championships (Girls Golf), 6 CIF Swimming Individual Titles, 1 CIF Diving Champion, 2 CIF Golf Individual Divisional Champions (1 Girl, 1 Boy), CIF Basketball Champions, and multiple Jr. High League Championships (Flag Football, Basketball, Soccer). Teaches (or has taught) PE, Health, and Athletic Performance. Fairmont Preparatory Academy alumnus Ben Harrison used to dream about working on Capitol Hill— and now that's his reality. After graduating summa cum laude and receiving his Bachelor of Arts degrees in political science and public policy from the University of Redlands, Harrison worked a variety of political internships before landing a full-time position in Washington, D.C. as a staff member in the office of a congressman. Harrison, who attended Fairmont Private Schools from TEENgarten until high school graduation, developed an interest in politics during the beginning stages of his time at Fairmont Prep and was able to take advantage of various opportunities the school offered in order to pursue his passion. Not only was he the senior class vice president, but he also involved himself in other leadership opportunities and took courses that would better prepare him for his career interests. "The great thing about Fairmont was that, all of the subjects were so well taught that I never felt I was lacking," he said. "It helped me to pave the path that I'm currently on and really follow through on a goal that I had early on in my high school career, which was to be somewhere in politics— and that's where I am right now." Harrison intends to continue in his political pursuits and knows that whatever goals he sets before himself are attainable, thanks in large part to the preparation he received as a student at Fairmont.
