About Us

Fairfax University of America is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) institution committed to setting a new standard in higher education. Through our student-centered approach, we strive to provide the most positive environment for learning available anywhere.

Our Values

Our university is guided by five core values:


the foundations on which we build prosperity and human fulfillment


the process by which we reach our potential as human beings and societies


a sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves – be it global, national or local


the expectation that all leaders should make brave decisions in good faith and in a principled way


a sense of responsibility and care toward all people and things that depend on us

Our programs are structured to allow students great flexibility in the design and direction of their own studies. To keep pace with the latest developments in technology and teaching, our curriculum and materials are regularly reviewed and revised, and our instructors receive further training, as necessary.

“To foster an empowering learning community that elevates personal and professional growth to inspire students to be transformative leaders in today’s multi-dimensional, global society.”
