From Fountain Valley School

FVS is a place where you can be you, whatever that looks like, and where you will be a part of a diverse, global community of students and faculty who are deeply committed to their learning, yet “chill” in their approach to doing so. You’ll be encouraged to take ownership of your education and empowered to write your own history with our core values of courage, open-mindedness, self-reliance, curiosity, and compassion.

Our broad-based liberal arts approach will challenge you through globally-minded inquiry, problem-solving, experiential learning, and creative expression. Our senior year capstone experiences will allow you to push yourself to the highest level academically while diving deep into a specific interest or essential question.

Our magnificent setting on 1100 acres at the foot of the Rocky Mountains provides abundant opportunities to pursue sports inspired by our western lifestyle like climbing, mountain biking, skiing, and horseback riding, as well as traditional sports.
