Tuition & Affordability

We are proud that our students come from many different communities, different types of families, and a wide range of economic backgrounds, comprising a student body that represents the rich diversity of our region.

Maumee Valley students develop into leaders, scholars, and global citizens. Our families appreciate the opportunity to have their child join our community and be part of an incredible network of accomplished alumni.

Just as our school is dedicated to the success of each child we are also committed to making Maumee Valley affordable. We offer a variety of payment plans, scholarships, and financial support programs for qualified applicants.

Making MVCDS Affordable

List of 6 items.

  • Merit Scholarships

    Maumee Valley awards merit scholarships to qualified applicants for grades 5 through 12. To be eligible for one of these merit scholarships, students must complete our testing on one of our two testing dates (typically one Saturday in December and one in February).
  • Financial Aid

    Maumee Valley has a strong commitment to its financial aid program and to enrolling an economically diverse student body. Financial aid is need-based and is for tuition only. Merit scholarship recipients may also apply for financial aid. Financial Aid is an annual process. Families must apply each year.

    Families can apply for financial aid during the admission process to Maumee Valley. Maumee Valley uses FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to evaluate a family’s need. The application can be found at FACTS. The online process requires parents to fill out the financial statement detailing the family’s current financial situation and provide a copy of their tax return from the previous tax year.

    Factors taken into account when estimating a family’s financial contribution include income and assets, family size, and number of children in the household. We do provide an allowance for families with students attending colleges and universities. The system protects finances for basic living expenses based on family size and other fixed expenses such as taxes. The family is expected to contribute a percentage of the remaining “discretionary income” for private education. The financial aid process is strictly confidential and has no bearing on the admission process.
  • Payment Options

    Maumee Valley offers extended payment plan options (three or twelve monthly payments). Payments will be deducted automatically from your checking or savings account. For an additional 3.0% convenience fee you may charge your American Express, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover Card.
  • Ohio 529

    The Ohio Department of Taxation agreed to recommend amending the Revised Code to allow the deductions be extended to payments made to a Section 529 account that were then used for K-12 expenses. After the Senate concurs and Governor signs the bill, this means that anyone can open a new 529 account or use an existing 529 account to pay for private K-12 school tuition and receive the full state tax deduction ($4,000 per beneficiary per year) and other favorable tax treatment. Please note: It is perfectly legal and acceptable for your school to receive money from a 529 account even without this bill. The impending state law changes impact the tax burden and deductions of those making deposits into the 529 accounts. The bill is a big win for our schools' parents.
  • Hosting International Students

    Welcoming a student from overseas is a wonderful way to expose your family to another culture and build lifelong global relationships. It can also be a way to help pay for your own children’s tuition as Maumee Valley offers a monthly housing stipend of $900. While there are limited hosting opportunities, interested families should contact the Admission Office for more information.
  • NW Ohio Scholarship Fund
