Saddleback Valley Christian School recently announced in a blog post that the school will launch Rancho Santa Margarita Christian School on the campus of The Bridge Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, in partnership with Mission Hills Christian School.
The planned move came as Fairmont Schools announced in a separate press release that it had closed escrow on the former Saddleback Valley Christian campus and will assume full operations and management of the property this summer. Fairmont Schools is expanding its network of private schools with the opening of a new pre-K through 12th-grade campus in San Juan Capistrano.
“We are very excited to bring Fairmont’s longstanding tradition of academic excellence to South Orange County,” said David Jackson, chairman of Fairmont Schools. “We’ve been looking for the right opportunity to grow our presence in Orange County, and we are delighted to open our doors in San Juan Capistrano and welcome our new students, faculty and staff.”
