How did MVS become?

Sixty years ago, a few passionate families envisioned an education that had yet to exist in Dayton. The Miami Valley School was born out of the desire to provide experiential learning in an intimate environment where the educational focus was directed to the individual needs of the student. That vision became the MVS culture.

When you walk onto the MVS campus today, you’ll experience our joyful personality. You’ll see that our culture celebrates everyone for what they bring to the table. We believe in scholarship and our accomplished teachers have high expectations of their students. We have a diverse student body and we embrace and respect different heritages and learn from one another. And transformation happens. In our safe environment, students become empowered to take chances.

Come visit and have your child spend the day in classes. There’s no better way to experience MVS than through our students’ and teachers’ stories. We welcome you to the MVS admissions process and we will guide you every step of the way with personal attention. We’ll unfold the many reasons why MVS is the best educational opportunity for your child.

Welcome! We look forward to starting the conversation.

"MVS helped establish my voice in many ways. It was through Miami Valley that I learned how to think critically and break down arguments. My time at MVS taught me how to empathize and be patient with others and really helped establish how to advocate."
