College Readiness- The PG Year

After over a year of disrupted education, does your college-bound student need more time to prepare for the rigors of college-level work? Could they benefit from a transitional experience before living away from home?

A year at Marvelwood will prepare students entering their senior or postgraduate year to get the most out of their college experience. As an intentionally small school, our specialty is creating individual approaches to learning that will most deeply resonate, inspire, and engage. Each student's program is customized to their needs; small classes, fiercely dedicated faculty, and optional participation in our Learning Support program can address specific gaps that may have resulted from an extended period of remote and/or hybrid learning. In our diverse, welcoming, and supportive community, Marvelwood offers the opportunity for college-bound students to build crucial skills, gain independence, and develop the confidence and self-advocacy they will need to meet the academic and social challenges of higher education.
