Groundbreaking

On February 4, 2024, FVL invited 21 students from our 17 FVL Schools and our high school, along with the Board of Regents to turn a shovel, signifying the groundbreaking of our upcoming Timothy Trout Sports Center. We were able to celebrate with Dr. and Mrs. Trout (financial donors of the building), along with about 500 Federation members.  

If you were not able to make it, you can watch the service on our YouTube page.

To God be all the glory!

You Can Help!

You have an opportunity to play a part in getting the sports center ready for use. The Sports Center is in need of items such as basketball hoops, tennis nets, and portable bleachers. Please check our furnishings web page to see where you can help!

Announcing Exciting News!

Gift Received

FVL has received a significant gift toward building the Timothy Trout Sports Center and outdoor tennis courts. It will be located to the east of the varsity soccer field. No additional debt will be incurred with this project. Plans are to have these new resources available to our students during the 2024-25 school year. Details and timelines will be shared on this web page as they are finalized.

We are thankful to God for this blessing to FVL's ministry!

Site Plan

Rendering of FVL's tentative master site plan including a rec center, reconfigured parking lot to add spaces, and more

This site plan is designed to help with preparing for the future. This is intended to be a guide so that as needs become urgent, there will be a tentative plan which can be refined as needed.

Top left corner of the site plan showing the soccer fields and football field

The west half of the site plan is displayed.

  • The new Timothy Trout Sports Center and parking are on the east side of the varsity soccer field.
  • The plan proposes the addition of an indoor multi-sport turf field between the Timothy Trout Sports Center and the football field.
  • Proposed enhancements to the football field are displayed, including an updated stadium entrance, an expansion to the restrooms and concessions area, and a turf field.
  • Growing enrollment will necessitate additional classrooms, and two blocks accommodating that need are shown on the east side of the building.
  • Increased enrollment also brings the need for additional parking. The plan shows a proposal for reconfigured parking lots to accommodate this need.
This is the top right corner of the site plan, including two practice fields in the Meadow, and softball and baseball fields

The east half of the site plan is displayed.

  • An expansion to the meadow practice field area is proposed, along with a storage building in that area.
  • The plan shows an expansion of the asphalt path leading to the meadow practice fields.
  • Suggested enhancements to the current baseball and softball fields include lighting, turf infields, and a press box / concessions structure.
  • An addition of a second softball field is shown in the southeastern area of the drawing.

Planning for Growth 

Rising enrollment has initiated the need to prepare for expanded facilities. For over a year, President Loberger has been working with FVL committees and with architects from Somerville to research and develop a tentative Site Plan for the school. Mr. Loberger and the committees worked through a Ministry Growth Plan which took into consideration how rising enrollment numbers will impact all areas of the school and its ministry. 

The modifications and additions presented in the drawing are tentative and are designed to help guide decisions as facility changes become necessary to accommodate future growth.  A few of the driving concerns considered are listed below.

  • INDOOR ATHLETIC FACILITIES - PHY ED CLASSES - Expansion of indoor athletic facilities will increase options and class space for students in their required physical education classes.
  • SPRING SPORTS - Spring athletics have a particularly tough time finding adequate practice space in our current building due to Wisconsin's often less-than-friendly spring weather. Increased indoor athletic facilities will provide much-needed practice space for our current teams.
  • GROWING TENNIS PROGRAM - Increasing interest in our tennis programs make it cost effective to have courts on campus rather than renting space in off-site facilities.
  • NEED FOR PARKING PLACES - Reconfiguration of the parking lot will increase the capacity of our lots, making room for a larger student population and for increased viewers at athletic, theatrical, music, and other events.
  • CLASSROOM AND RESTROOM NEEDS - If FVL's growing enrollment continues (see projected numbers below), it will necessitate the addition of classrooms and restrooms so that FVL can continue to provide a quality Christian education to area teens.

Future Enrollment

The 2022-23 school year saw a record number of students enrolled at FVL. Admission numbers in our Federation PreK-8 schools are on the rise. An increasing number of community members are coming to FVL as freshmen and are transferring in as sophomores, juniors, and even as seniors. 

Enrollment is projected to break 800 by 2029-2030 based on current data, but it could reach that as early as 2025-26!  

In the below chart, the numbers in boxes are based on nine years of data trends.
