The Admission Process

Admission to Maumee Valley Country Day School is selective, however we work with families through a personalized process to evaluate if our school is the right fit for each student. We welcome talented, mission appropriate, and diverse groups of students to the Maumee Valley community.

The admission process must be completed 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.
