From The Miami Valley School

The Miami Valley School is Dayton's only independent, nonsectarian college preparatory school for grades Pre-K through 12.

Since its founding in 1964, MVS has been a leader in experience-based education, an approach that is guided by its signature MVS Immersion Method. MVS challenges students to become self-sustaining learners and compassionate global citizens by empowering them to explore their passions in a supportive, diverse learning environment. The results speak for themselves: 100% of MVS graduates attend top colleges, with 94% of the Class of 2022 being accepted at institutions marked "highly competitive" on the Barron's Selectivity Index.
