Fountain Valley School of Colorado was accepted as a Round Square member school in the spring of 2013. FVS is one of just 10 Round Square member schools in the United States and the only school between the two coasts.
Round Square gives Fountain Valley School another dimension to its Global Scholar Diploma, which is a four-year curricular and co-curricular program emphasizing global learning in the FVS classroom, the local community and through immersion experiences.

Membership in Round Square builds on a long history of global awareness and liberal arts education at FVS, and it deepens the experiential components of the Global Scholar Diploma. The partnerships will allow relatively low-cost educational exchanges at independent schools in places such as South Africa, Australia and Peru.

FVS students have taken advantage of Round Square opportunities after graduation as well. Chris Peel '14 and Meg Rash '14 both used part of their gap years to teach at Round Square schools. Peel was a teacher assistant at Colegio Anglo Colombiano school in Bogotá, Colombia, for the fall semester. Rash spent the spring of 2015 teaching at Ballarat Grammar School in Victoria, Australia. Benny Cole '15 followed in Peel's footsteps at Colegio Anglo Colombiano in the fall of 2015.

Round Square Exchanges

Every year, Fountain Valley School hosts exchange students from Round Square schools across the world, and in return, our students travel abroad for their own RS experiences.

RS Conferences

FVS students have the opportunity to attend Round Square conferences at national, regional and global levels. The scope of the annual Round Square international conference reaches around the globe, bringing together students and school leaders from schools on six continents.

India's Mayo College

In 2013, the students in Susan Carrese and Mike Payne's India Interim visited Round Square school Mayo College in Rajasthan (photo by Megan Rash '14).

"Mayo College was different and impressive," Mailey McCann '14 said. "The students were similar to FVS students; they were friendly, humorous and intelligent. Indian education is more competitive than American education, and while FVS is challenging, Mayo College has an even longer schedule by day and a six-day school week."

In the spring of 2015, students from Mayo College reciprocated the visit by staying a week in the Colorado Springs area. The 10 boys explored FVS and learned about its ranching heritage, and also stayed at the Mountain Campus to learn about the Colorado landscape.
