  • A Home Away From Home

    Welcome to Dayal House
Being part of our residential community means you are joining a family. With almost 40 scholars from around the world (28 living on campus in Dayal House), our boarding students truly live the school’s mission of being “an inclusive community of intellectual excellence where learners creatively explore their passions and boldly inspire positive change in the world.” Our program, led by our Student Life staff, is designed to feel like a home away from home. Students are supported and guided and the Maumee Valley family is here to help each student succeed academically and socially. Unlike traditional boarding schools, our thoughtfully crafted program, small size, and focus on the individual student provide personal attention and care to each of our students.

"I really appreciate the opportunity that Maumee Valley gave me to spend time with my Buddy Family. They taught me a lot, both in school and in my American life."

The Dayal House

Maumee Valley’s boarding program is housed in the $1.6 million Dayal House. The residence hall was purposefully designed to create a family-like atmosphere for residential students. From the spacious Commons to the well equipped main kitchen, the Dayal House feels like a home. The Student Life staff includes 4 adults who forge close relationships with students and guide them in building friendships and developing important social and leadership skills.

Located just across the Anning Lawn from the Upper School, the Dayal House is the place on campus where boarding, international, and day students meet after school to work on projects, get tutoring help with homework/papers, or just hang out.

  • 7:1 student/staff ratio

While many boarding schools are in small towns or rural areas, Maumee Valley’s beautiful 75-acre campus is situated only minutes from downtown Toledo, an international hub for business, transportation, and cultural attractions. Students benefit from the location in a variety of ways:

  • Detroit Metropolitan Airport is 45 minutes from campus and features nonstop flights to almost every major city in the United States and internationally.
  • Toledo is home to minor league sports, including the Toledo Mud Hens (baseball) & Walleye (hockey).
  • Northwest Ohio has an incredible zoo, art museum, and a hands-on science center.
  • Cedar Point, “the best amusement park in the world,” is an hour’s drive.
  • Toledo is close to Detroit (1 hour), Cleveland (2 hours), Columbus (2.5 hours), and Chicago (4 hours).
  • 10+ colleges & research universities are within 50 miles of campus.
  • Toledo’s Metropark system is one of the best in the country and provides a myriad of opportunities to explore nature and enjoy warm and cold weather activities.
