Fairmont Schools—a private school institution—held a ribbon-cutting for their new location in San Juan Capistrano on Thursday, Aug. 6. The campus is at the former Saddleback Valley Christian School location on Oso Road.

School officials were greeted by representatives from the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce and other organizations. The event was livestreamed on Facebook.

“Today was a great day in Fairmont Schools’ history,” Fairmont Schools Chairman David Jackson said. “For many years, it’s been our goal to grow our family of schools to South County, and now that day has officially arrived . . . we couldn’t be happier.”
