Admission

Welcome!

Welcome! We’ll say it again even though it’s right above in BIG bold type. But we mean it. It’s our pleasure and our privilege to greet you with open arms and we are here to help you however we can.
Dear Future Danes,

The admission team is here to help you through the admission process and ensure that it is a fun, engaging, and interactive experience.  The best way to learn more about us is to schedule your on-campus tour.  As you walk up to the Hacienda Living Room to be greeted by your admission counselor, be sure to check out the views of Pikes Peak. Our students get to see the mountains every day from our dining hall, residential spaces, and our chapel that hosts all schools weekly for our community gatherings.  
 
As you begin the admission process, we want your family to feel the partnership with our admission team. It’s our job and passion to help you see the greatness in yourself, figure out your passions, and what drives you in your path forward through high school. At Fountain Valley, you will enroll in incredible courses and find teachers who want to support and push you to the next level in academics, but also value the importance of athletics, arts, and after-school activities. You'll have learning opportunities outside of the classroom through field trips in Colorado Springs, as well as national and global travel, that will guide your story for years to come.  
 
Your new best friends will be formed at Fountain Valley School — a small, compassionate, boarding and day community that cares about our students, leaders, and their future endeavors. The opportunities are endless! With 90% of our faculty living on campus, students are surrounded by adult mentors. Your home away from home will be buzzing with faculty children, dogs, and our natural neighbors like rabbits, bald eagles, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope.  
 
Again, the best way to experience Fountain Valley is to come to campus.  If that is not possible, allow us to set up a virtual tour via Zoom, WeChat, or WhatsApp. We are here to help answer your questions and guide you through the uncertainties of applying to an independent boarding and day school. Be sure to explore our website, watch our videos, follow us on Instagram & Facebook, and read reviews from our students, parents, and alumni.  We look forward to hearing from you. 

Sincerely,
 
Lindsey Wolter Ratliff
Director of Enrollment Management
