While we have two Visiting Days during the school year—Columbus Day and Martin Luther King Day—we can always customize a visit for you any time based on your interests. Students and parents have an opportunity to go to classes and meet students, teachers and coaches. If you’re planning on being a boarding student, you can even spend the night in a residence house. While you’re here, you can interview with an admission officer. If you’re unable to visit campus, give us a call at 719-391-5251, and we’ll do all we can to give you a feel for Fountain Valley School.

The Character Skills Snapshot is an online assessment taken at home in approximately 20 minutes. It measures a student's view of his/her character skill development, providing schools with a richer, more holistic view of individuals. All applicants to Fountain Valley School of Colorado are strongly recommended to take The Character Skills Snapshot. Once you register for the SSAT, you will have access to The Snapshot. This assessment is highly recommended, but not required.
