The Admission Process

Admission to Maumee Valley Country Day School is selective, however we work with families in the spirit of evaluating to see if our school is the right fit for each student. We welcome a talented, mission appropriate, diverse group of students to the Maumee Valley community.

The admission process must be complete for the Admission Committee to review an application. Maumee Valley takes very seriously the responsibility of working with prospective families and making an admission decision that is in the best interest of the applicant and the school. Upon admission to Maumee Valley families are issued an enrollment contract, which should be submitted with the deposit ($1000 or $300 if family is applying for financial aid) within two weeks.

Steps to Apply to MVCDS

List of 4 items.

  • Step 1: Complete the Application Packet

    All families should complete the Application form and submit the Application Fee ($50 for domestic applicants; $150 for international applicants). Students applying for grades 7-12 are required to fill out the Student Information Sheet.
  • Step 2: Request School Records & Recommendations

    Please give the Records Request Form on page 11 to the applicant’s current school. In addition, we require one recommendation (on page 9) for students applying to grades K-6 and two recommendations for students applying for grades 7-12.
  • Step 3: Campus Visit

    All applicants are invited to be a “Hawk for a Day” while visiting classes, spending time with peers, and learning about what it is like to be a Maumee Valley student. Please work with the Admission Office to schedule the visit day, which often includes an interview with the appropriate Division Head.

    Students living outside the region may do a Skype interview as an alternative to the visit date, however we recommend visiting campus if possible.

    Applicants to the Early Learning Center (Preschool-Kindergarten) typically do not visit for the full day. Parents are invited to accompany their student to the classroom and meet with the Director at the end of the visit to review the visit and assessment.

    Please contact the Admission Office at (419) 381-1313x117 to schedule this visit.
  • Step 4: Admission Testing

    Maumee Valley requires an admission test for all applicants (except Preschool-Kindergarten). Testing dates are scheduled on Saturdays in mid-November, late-February, and select Saturdays in the early spring. There is no additional fee for admission testing. Students must register with the Admission Office before the testing date. International students are required to submit the TOEFL, SSAT, or IELTS.
