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 “enabling students to become enlightened, compassionate, and contributing citizens of our global community.” 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.

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.
Highlights of the Dayal House and boarding program include:
7:1 student/staff ratio
2 full kitchens
steps from classes and athletics facilities
comfortable, home-like feel
amenities including free laundry, wi-fi, TV, study spaces
academic support nightly

In existence for over 100 yrs, the Toledo Zoo is one of the world’s most complete zoos. See animals from the Arctic tundra to the wilds of Africa, from the tropical rainforest to the Sonoran Desert and all points between.
The Toledo Museum of Art's collection of more than 30,000 works of art ranks among the finest in the world. Since its founding in 1901, the museum has earned a global reputation for the quality of the collection, its innovative and extensive education programs, and the architecturally significant campus.
