Since its founding in 1930, Fountain Valley School of Colorado has created a dynamic educational community dedicated to excellence in academics, arts and athletics.
Fountain Valley Schools 1,100-acre central campus is distinguished by its southwestern-style architecture, and the panorama of open prairie and snow-capped mountains. A 40-acre Mountain Campus deep in the San Isabel National Forest, 115 miles west of the main campus, is used as an additional resource for the students and the School community.
FVS mission is to educate young people of sound character who seek high standards and a demanding course of study, and to contribute to their emotional, moral and social development. The code of Respect, Responsibility and Trust is the cornerstone of a community where faculty and students live and work closely.
Under the leadership of Headmaster Jack Creeden, Fountain Valley School has begun implementing a strategic plan, FVS 2000 A Vision of Excellence in the Western Tradition. New admission standards for accepting a selective student body, broadening the Schools rigorous curriculum to include the study of the West, and creating excellence in residential life, have positioned Fountain Valley School prominently among the best boarding/day Schools in the West.
