Admission Process

What does success look like? 
It looks like Marvelwood.

Marvelwood students want to achieve.  And because they are surrounded by peers with a matched level of grit; and teachers with an unfathomable commitment to their success, they do. The transformations we see from the time our students arrive—to when they graduate—are nothing less than astounding. The source of this success? Resilience. What calls for future success? Resilience.  Our students graduate with enduring courage, compassion, and confidence for their futures ahead.
