Located in the Rocky Mountain West, Fountain Valley School offers a college-preparatory, boarding and day school program for motivated students within a close knit and supportive community. The generous landscape of open prairie and snow-capped mountains is a continual source of personal inspiration, as well as a reminder of the opportunities and responsibilities that lie beyond the School’s boundaries.
Fountain Valley School of Colorado is dedicated to providing a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum in academics, athletics and the arts. Our community endeavors to foster a lifelong love of challenge and learning in an environment of diversity and mutual respect, and to prepare adolescents to become individuals who are open-minded, curious, courageous, self-reliant and compassionate.
Francis Froelicher, the School’s founding headmaster, believed that Fountain Valley School should prepare students “to write their own history.” To empower them to do so, the School seeks to nurture all students in their pursuit of excellence and strives to develop in all students the following core values:
To be aware of the richness and depth of all human experience.
To value lifelong pleasure in intellectual exploration and discovery; to receive the consequent satisfaction of achievement and excellence through focused, creative effort.
To embrace challenge intellectually, physically, emotionally and spiritually as a pathway to insight and self-understanding; to stretch and see beyond one’s perceived boundaries.
To be responsible; to exhibit initiative and accountability, working independently and collaboratively.
To demonstrate care and service to others, and to live a balanced and healthy life, enjoying the harmony of work and play.
