Programs

Intensives, also known as Winterim (grades 9-12)

Every January, the Upper School suspends its regular curriculum to enable students to study one subject in depth. At the start, middle and end of the year, the intensive learning during these terms take three forms: on-campus classes, educational travel, and independent study projects. Winterim classes have included: Horror Literature, Medieval Literature Missiles (Lit or Miss), Blues to Beatles to Beyoncé, Drumline, Zoology, Chemistry of Food, trips to the Bahamas, Ecuador, and Spain and many more.

Independent Day School Experience

MV invites Network students to design their own one or two week experience living with a MV family and attending classes. Students may enroll in college prep classes with an emphasis on electives in the Arts, social studies, and a global education program. Electives include: environmental science, international issues, economics, graphic design, audio and video production, theatre, etc.

Living Arrangements and Travel

Network students are housed with Maumee Valley friends or families. The Toledo area includes small Midwestern towns as well as the resources of a large city. Interesting places to visit include: the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky and Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

Students may fly into either Toledo Express Airport or Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
