Special Programs

Intensives: This is the hallmark of a MV education. Three times each year for three weeks each time, all Upper School students select from course offerings that include on-campus experiences, local and international educational trips, independent study projects and networking opportunities throughout the United States. By the end of their fourth year, Maumee Valley graduates have a broad range of experiential knowledge that better prepares them to pursue education at a more competitive level. Intensives enhance the Upper School students' learning by providing in-depth study of a topic and allowing further opportunity to explore personal academic pathways, while earning academic credit.
