Athletic Hall of Fame

The Athletic Hall of Fame honors Fountain Valley School alumni, faculty and supporters who have made an impact on FVS’s athletic program. Anyone in the FVS community can make a nomination. You’ll find the form below.
Fountain Valley School has a rich tradition of athletic success. This success is never achieved alone — it is a cumulative effort by student-athletes, coaches, parents, and community supporters. The purpose of the Fountain Valley School Athletic Hall of Fame is to formally recognize the memory and contributions of these individuals. The Hall of Fame serves as a symbol of our appreciation for the excellence and devotion displayed by these celebrated individuals and teams, and will further maintain the sense of community and pride in the School, and serve as a historical account of the athletic traditions of Fountain Valley School.
