Marvelwood's commitment to wellness reflects the School's understanding that a healthy mind and body enhance success factors in academics and in life. The School continually adapts its programming to reflect the changing needs of adolescents.
Freshman Academy is designed for our newest students who are acclimating to life at boarding school. The series of discussion-based workshops focus on on subjects that are not taught in the classroom, but are elements of a student's daily life. As a school, we strive to educate the whole student, not just in academic areas, but in how to navigate the natural challenges of adolescence. The Academy is conducted in a relaxed setting which allows freshmen to come and learn and ask questions about these topics.
