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:
A- GPA in a strong college preparatory program that includes some Honors, Advanced Placement and/or International Baccalaureate courses.
The middle 50% of admitted students scored between 1260-1370 on the SAT, and between 27-31 on the ACT. *
*Admission to Fairfield is test optional.
We look for an essay which displays evidence of careful thought and consideration, as well as solid writing skills.
Successful applicants to Fairfield have made a significant contribution to something outside of the classroom - a club, sport, service activity, part-time job, etc. Many have held leadership roles in these organizations, too.
