Academic support programs at Maumee Valley Country Day School play a crucial role in ensuring that each student receives the personalized assistance and resources needed to thrive academically. These programs go beyond traditional classroom instruction, addressing the diverse learning needs and styles of students.

We also believe in providing super-deep learning experiences that challenge and inspire, igniting a passion for inquiry and critical thinking that transcends the confines of traditional education. Whether it’s assistance with test-taking, accommodations for diverse learning needs, or enrichment opportunities for those with exceptional abilities, we are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of every learner at every stage of their educational journey.

Ultimately, our programs aim to create a supportive, inclusive, and enriching learning environment. By addressing individual learning needs and fostering a collaborative approach among educators, parents, and support staff, these programs contribute to the overall success and well-being of students.

Here are some key functions of our academic support programs:

  • Individualized support plans (ILPs)
    Academic support programs create and implement ISPs tailored to the unique strengths and challenges of each student. These plans serve as roadmaps for educators to customize teaching strategies and provide targeted support.
  • Differentiated instruction
    Incorporating differentiated instruction techniques in the classroom, allowing teachers to adapt their teaching methods to accommodate varying learning styles, paces, and preferences.
  • Tutoring services
    Through specialized tutoring services, we are providing students with one-on-one or small-group support in specific subjects. Tutors may reinforce classroom lessons, clarify concepts, and help students build confidence in their academic abilities.
  • Enrichment programs
    In addition to supporting students who may need extra assistance, our programs often include enrichment opportunities for those seeking additional challenges, such as advanced coursework and research opportunities.
  • Assistive technologies
    Leveraging the latest technologies, our programs integrate assistive tools such as text-to-speech software, adaptive learning platforms, and other assistive technologies. These tools enhance accessibility for students with diverse learning needs.
  • Collaboration with parents and faculty
    Our programs foster open communication and collaboration among MV faculty, parents, and support staff. Regular meetings, progress updates, and collaborative planning help create a cohesive support system for each student.
  • Social-emotional learning
    Recognizing the importance of holistic development, we incorporate social-emotional learning initiatives. These programs focus on developing essential life skills, such as self-awareness, emotional regulation, and interpersonal communication.
  • Professional development for educators
    Continuous professional development ensures that our educators are equipped with the latest instructional strategies and are well-versed in addressing diverse learning needs. This ongoing training enhances the effectiveness of academic support within the classroom.


At the heart of our educational ethos is a commitment to personalized learning, a principle that resonates from the earliest stages of childhood development. Central to our mission is the celebration and support of neurodiversity. We recognize and honor the cognitive differences that exist within our students, understanding that each mind possesses its own distinct brilliance.

Our ultimate goal is to cultivate not just scholars, but leaders – individuals equipped with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to navigate an ever-changing world with courage and conviction.
