Black, Columbia blue, and silver are the school colors. They were selected by a vote of high school students in grades 9-11 from both Valley and North Fayette. An ad hoc committee of students worked through a process to select three-color combinations for the students to choose from. A somewhat arduous task eventually resulted in a unique color combination that is distinct and provides a unique look for the students that represent North Fayette Valley. At the time they were adopted, no other school in Iowa had this color combination, providing the new school with a strong identify. For purposes of consistency in production of articles in the school colors, the official colors are black, Pantone 292 (Columbia blue), and Pantone Cool Gray 6c (silver).
