Summary: At Marvelwood, we have long delivered an academic program that we feel every school should strive to emulate: one that is customized to each student's interests and needs, one that is intentionally challenging and appropriately nurturing, one that is sensitive to and accommodating of learning differences. The academic program is geared to providing a strong preparation for college and laying the foundation for a lifetime of curiosity, inquiry and learning.
We continually adjust our curricula with an eye to providing the most engaging and stimulating academic program possible.

Summary: Marvelwood is small enough for everybody to know everybody else. That also means that every person plays an important role in the life of the school. Students can find roles they are comfortable in as well as responsibilities that challenge them. They learn who they really are, and how easily that identity can be expanded, through a wide variety of opportunities and a deep sense of belonging. Marvelwood is an intimate commuity that celebrates each student's individuality while constantly reinforcing the warmth and security of a family-like atmosphere.

Summary: Marvelwood is exceptionally proud of its diversity; our student body is made up of young people from all over the world, with different cultures, backgrounds and life experiences. Students live and work with people from all over the world. In getting to know others and their many differences, they also discover how much they have in common. We encourage our students to learn from each others' experiences and beliefs in order to build a common and evolving school character.

Summary: College counselors at Marvelwood help a student identify schools that will meet his or her needs academically and provide an appropriate environment for continuing personal and intellectual growth. We do not, however, pick schools “out of the air.” We are in the business of enabling students to see a match, and then aiding them in making that match with colleges throughout the application process. We visit college campuses, attend professional conferences and workshops, and host between 30-40 college representatives on campus each fall. We offer informed advice to students and their parents at every stage in the transition from Skiff Mountain to the future, and we value the relationships we establish with families in the course of our counseling efforts.
