Description

Fountain Valley School is a coed independent college preparatory school that offers boarding and day programs for students in grades 9-12. Fountain Valley (FVS) was established in 1930 and is located on an 1,100 acre campus that looks at Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which is 70 miles (115 km) south of Denver. Colorado’s mountain ski resorts are two hours to the west, and the School has a 40-acre Mountain Campus near Buena Vista, Colorado that provides abundant opportunities for year-round recreation and experiential education programs. 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 our core values of courage, open-mindedness, self-reliance, curiosity, and compassion.
