Core Values

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:
  • Courage
    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
  • Open-mindedness
    To be aware of the richness and depth of all human experience
  • Self-Reliance 
    To be responsible; to exhibit initiative and accountability, working independently and collaboratively
  • Curiosity
    To value lifelong pleasure in intellectual exploration and discovery; to receive the consequent satisfaction of achievement and excellence through focused, creative effort
  • Compassion 
    To demonstrate care and service to others, and to live a balanced and healthy life, enjoying the harmony of work and play
