About Maryvale

No one knows and loves your daughter more than you and your family, which is why selecting the right school for her is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. At Maryvale, we understand the privilege given by parents when they entrust their daughters to the school’s care.

Our school is small by design with a faculty to student ratio of 1:9, offering an unrivaled educational experience for students in grades 6–12 in the tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Providing an education rooted in Catholic values, our faculty is comprised of veteran teachers who have educated generations of young women.

Our distinction is a college preparatory curriculum broad enough to afford flexibility and a scope of choice that meets the needs of the individual learner. And our open, college-like campus prepares girls for life after Maryvale.

Our students use iPads as part of every class. Creative students embrace the latest innovations in graphic design, digital art and photography in our state-of-the-art Mac lab. Athletes compete on a new outdoor athletic facility, which features a turf field, regulation track, field event facilities, softball field and practice fields. Actresses perform in a 500-plus seat theater, equipped with soundproof music suites and Broadway-style dressing rooms.

Regardless of their significant accomplishments, our students maintain a humility that is palpable. Maryvale alumnae return regularly, and whether they are running one of the largest health care systems in the country, serving as a professor at a prestigious university, partnering in a national law firm, serving our legal system as a judge, coaching a Division I athletic team, publishing a newspaper, or serving as an executive at a Fortune 500 company, they describe Maryvale as a “home away from home.”

Our website will provide you with plenty of useful information, but to feel the warmth of Maryvale, please consider my invitation to you and your family to visit our school and meet our dynamic students and teachers. Let us help your family discover Maryvale as you continue on your journey to make the best possible decision for your daughter’s educational future.

We look forward to welcoming you to Maryvale.
