Alumni Homecoming Reunion: October 13-14, 2023

We invite all of our alumni to reconnect and rediscover Marvelwood during our Alumni Homecoming & Fall Family Weekend. Visit with faculty, reunite with friends, cheer on our student-athletes, and meet Terry Dactyl (our new mascot)! We are confident you'll enjoy seeing how some of your favorite traditions remain, and how current students are benefiting from our small school community.

After all, "Home is Where the Heart is" and you will always have a place within the Marvelwood Community.
