Students looking to take a break from their studies will find ample opportunities to participate in planned activities on and off the FVS campus. Gather in the Frautschi Campus Center–your FVS mail room and School store headquarters–before or after class to watch a movie, play video games or ping pong, and enjoy snacks from the student-run RK Cafe; let your imagination run wild in the Open Makerspace in the Library; or swim some laps, shoot some hoops, and tackle the rock-climbing wall in FVS’s state-of-the-art Julie and Spencer Penrose Athletic Center.
Boarding and Day students alike are also invited to take advantage of FVS’s proximity to multiple Rocky Mountain ski resorts such as Monarch Mountain, the Downtown Colorado Springs area, the Class of ’69 Mountain Campus located nearby Buena Vista, Colo. and the natural hot springs of Mt. Princeton Resort, and other regional destinations, during weekend activities and trips. Buses are also available to transport students to and from local theaters, Asian- and Hispanic-inspired grocery store chains, museums and special exhibits, retail outlets, and more.
