  • Core to the Upper School Experience

    A Highly Individualized Process
The goal at Maumee Valley is to find the best possible college fit for each uniquely talented student. 
Students work closely with the Office of College Counseling beginning their freshman year to establish the foundation for creating a four-year portfolio that reflects the scope of each individual and his or her many talents and interests. The college search process can be an intimidating, but also an exciting endeavor. The director and assistant director of college counseling are available for appointments and dialogue with any student and parent regardless of grade level.

Maumee Valley students fare extremely well in the competitive college admissions process. In fact, 100 percent of graduates go on to four-year, highly-selective institutions. This is attributed to MV's renowned reputation for offering the most rigorous academic preparation.

Our students are able to develop true passions through MVCDS’s unique programs such as Intensives and vibrant athleticsarts, service and leadership opportunities. Differentiation and demonstrated interest are integral pieces to the admissions process and MV students are incredibly successful in these categories. Please visit our list of acceptances and matriculations.

Our 2023-2024 Upper School Profile provides more information about matriculations and acceptances, as well as the academic talent of our students. Maumee Valley students excel on the SAT (336 points above the national average) and ACT (7 points above the national average and the highest in the Toledo area).
