Information for Guidance Counselors
The admission process at Fairfield is not a simple review of test scores and grades, but a deliberate consideration of each individual's strengths and prospects for success. Here is a profile of our typical incoming class:
Academic Profile: The majority of students maintain a B to B+ average or better in a college preparatory curriculum which includes honors and advanced placement classes. The majority of our students rank in the top 20% of their high school class.
Standardized Tests: The middle 50% of our class scored between 1690 and 1910 on their SATs, and between 25 and 28 on their ACTs.
Essay: We look for an essay which displays evidence of careful thought and consideration, as well as solid writing skills.
Activities: The typical Fairfield applicant is involved in a variety of high school activities, athletics, or service-related activities, and often holds leadership positions in one of more of those activities.
