In existence since 1984, Fair Oaks Academy is acknowledged as a school that accomplishes ease of reading, proficiency in math, and excellent penmanship in young children, allowing them to move early into the study of subjects that are individually interesting to them.
Fair Oaks Academy is held in high regard for bringing out the best in a child.
We look for how each child is gifted, and often discover it.
Art and creativity are encouraged, and we offer a substantial arts program.
We are particularly strong in music, including musical theory, so that a quite young child in our school will begin to read sheet music and will graduate smoothly from recorder study to instrumental band, and from kindergarten-level singing to higher gradients of harmony and rhythm.
As a component of physical education, the children are offered various kinds of dance, ranging from the "big circle mountain dances" of North Carolina to hip-hop, ballroom, or Irish dance.
We think children should get out to see and experience the world, so classes have regular and varied field trips.
Additionally, our beautiful and rustic six-acre Santa Ana River retreat in the San Bernardino mountains is available throughout the year for activities such as hiking, harvesting apples and cherries, nature studies, American Indian studies, snow-play and summer camping trips.
