Preparing for college
We prepare our graduates to the Miami Valley School with the skillset and tools to succeed at the nation’s most selective colleges and universities. However, we do not subscribe to a “one-size-fits-all” philosophy. Through our unique blend of experiential education, combined with challenging academics, we encourage students to explore their options, push past their comfort zone, and find the path that best fits their passions, motivations and values. In the college process, and beyond, students are challenged to chart their own unique course. Students are provided with guidance and personalized attention throughout the college search and application process – we believe that finding the right fit, not just the most selective college or university, is integral to our students’ success.
