What does success look like? It looks like Marvelwood.

At Marvelwood, we believe that learning is a lifelong journey of exploration and discovery.  Marvelwood academics are experiential, active, and hands-on.  Our faculty thoughtfully and intentionally design a customized curriculum that supports and engages all types of learners.  We believe that it is not memorization, but rather understanding and inquiry that will support our students throughout a lifetime of learning and discovery. 

Thank you for getting to know us.  We welcome your inquiry and encourage you to visit campus- whether virtually or in-person.  There's no better way to understand the exceptional educational opportunities that await you here! 


We are now scheduling on-campus visits,
as well as virtual tours and interviews.

We believe in opportunity without compromise. During a time when specialization is the norm, we choose to create, instead, a culture of balance that makes space for our students to explore their varied passions and, perhaps, be inspired by new ones. At Marvelwood, you don't have to choose between being an athlete or an artist, between community service or chorus, between rock band or rock climbing; you can simply enjoy experiencing what inspires you.

Who benefits from a small school experience?  Everyone.

At Marvelwood, our size enables us to get to know each student and embark on a journey together to discover hidden talents, develop skills and interests, and build confidence for a lifetime of purposeful learning.  We are deeply dedicated to knowing and valuing our students, celebrating their individuality and challenging them to invest in their education and discover new passions.  We deliver a customized approach to learning that is responsive to student interests and supports and empowers them to move forward with courage in college, career, and life.

We are happy to schedule a customized virtual or on-campus visit.  We can show you around campus, answer your questions, arrange video calls with students, parents, faculty, and/or coaches, and do an admission interview.
