Welcome to the Mountain Valley Conference web site. Established in 1964 to serve schools in Western Maine, the charter members were Farmington High School, Gould Academy, Hall-Dale High School, Jay High School, Livermore Falls High School, Mexico High School, and Wilton Academy. We have gone through several changes over the years, and we presently have a 13-school membership. We hope our site will be a great resource for players, fans, coaches, and the media.
