An inspiring and supportive community

Maumee Valley is more than a campus. It is a community of learners and a way of life. A Maumee Valley education is a personal journey of discovery and action. Through carefully crafted experiences and an intentional culture of exploration and passion, we prepare each student toward exploration of the world and their place in it.

In a richly multicultural environment, Maumee Valley encourages and inspires in every student respect for others and develops creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and character. Above all, a Maumee Valley education is Personal, Experiential, and Global. We inspire and support each student to develop into an inquisitive person, with the skills and confidence necessary for success in college and later in life.

We are proud of our history of teaching to students’ passions and not to standardized tests, of recognizing that students learn best by doing, and of believing that creativity, innovation, and joy are at the core of what is best in education. Our students are engaged, passionate, and successful. They not only believe that they can make a difference in the world by the time they graduate they already have.

Welcome from the Head of School

A journey of discovery awaits you as you learn about the extraordinary ways we teach and support and the impact it carries forward throughout life.


While Maumee Valley Country Day School is nearing 140 years in Toledo and is rich in tradition, our history is anything but traditional. In fact, a chronicle of our key milestones reads like a record of “firsts.”


We are beholden to an innovative spirit and tradition of excellence and proud of our reputation for trailblazing. That pioneering spirit is demonstrated in many ways, from who we hire and how they teach to the students and families we select.


Through an intentionally crafted curriculum, including active lessons as well as serendipitous explorations, a Maumee Valley education launches children toward the investigation of the world and helps them find their place in it.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging

Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging initiatives are essential because they contribute to a fair, inclusive, and enriching educational experience for students, prepare them for a diverse world, and align with legal and ethical obligations while promoting positive societal change.

Our Community

We established and now sustain our impressive reputation through the skill and dedication of many talented professionals. Our commitment to excellence is and always will be a team effort, and we are fortunate to have faculty, parents, Trustees, and other leaders working seamlessly together in pursuit of our mission.

Our Campus

For 84 years, the Maumee Valley campus has grown along with its hometown of Toledo, using the surrounding natural beauty of creeks and forests to emphasize the word “country” in country day school.
