Description

Fountain Valley School (FVS) is a coed independent college preparatory school that offers boarding and day programs for students in grades 9-12. FVS was established in 1930 and is located on an 1,100 acre campus overlooking Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, CO, 70 miles (115 km) south of Denver. Colorado’s mountain ski resorts are two hours to the west, and the School’s 40-acre Mountain Campus near Buena Vista, CO provides abundant opportunities for year-round recreation and experiential education programs. FVS is a place where everyone belongs and our diverse, global community is deeply committed to students’ success.

Although Fountain Valley School is test-optional, anyone who submits any standardized test will be considered for a Summit Scholarship (a Merit-based scholarship).
