Prospective Student Open House

As Kettering non-public eighth graders begin to explore their high school options, we would like to take this opportunity to invite them to a special, Kettering Fairmont High School Open House. 

In Kettering, we are blessed to have great public and private schools. Our goal is to give students and parents accurate information to make the best decision for each family. We are offering two Open House dates to choose from:  October 24th from 9-11 a.m. and/or October 30th from 7-9 p.m. in Fairmont’s Recital Hall.

This event is intended for Kettering residents who have attended Private Schools. We will have an 8th Grade Parent night in the spring for our Van Buren and KMS students.
