  • 4) EARLY ACTION

    Early Action
    Admission applications should be completed by December 15 to be included in early action decisions. Financial Aid applications are due by January 15.  Decisions will be released through our FVS admission portal on February 1. Enrollment agreements are due April 10.

    Difference between Early Action and Regular Decision
    Early action is an opt-in, non-binding opportunity for families to get their decision earlier. It is for families who are interested in Fountain Valley School and would like to have an admission decision before other boarding and day school applications are due.
  • 5) TESTING

    The SSAT is optional at this time. Domestic day or boarding applicant who submits an SSAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, or ISEE result will be considered for our Summit Scholarship.  These scholarships range from $5,000 - $30,000 per year. We highly recommend families who are seeking the Summit Scholarship to apply as part of the Early Action program.
