Education...Reimagined

Special Programs

There are many things that make Marvelwood a unique and engaging academic environment, including experiential learning. Active, hands-on involvement in education translates to better focus, more effective retention, a stronger desire to master concepts, and an appreciation for how their work in school applies to the real world. Our Special Programs are what truly set us apart from other schools.
