The Mountain Valley Conference
Welcome to the Mountain Valley Conference web site. Established in 1964, 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 15-school membership.
The purpose of the Mountain Valley Conference is to promote a spirit of friendly, cooperative relations among themselves in all aspects of school programs. We also wish to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas concerning the curricular as well as the extra-curricular activities of our schools.
