Maryvale invited special guests and the community to the Investiture Ceremony for Malika DeLancey on Friday,
October 13, 2023. After an extensive search last winter, Ms. DeLancey assumed the role of President on July 1, 2023.
When I reflect on my experiences at Maryvale thus far, I am filled with gratitude. It’s like when you meet someone for the first time, and the connection is immediate and hard to explain. It’s just meant to be.
In this community, I see limitless potential.
I look forward to exploring what innovation looks like as it pertains to faith, service, and inclusion.

The Investiture Ceremony was held after an uplifting liturgy presided by Father Steven Roth. The ceremony included a presentation of gifts from parents, faculty, students, and trustees representing the Catholic Faith and Maryvale's commitment to the Hallmarks of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Learning Community.
Ms. DeLancey evokes joy and has a passion for helping young people live by the Maryvale Way — respect, dignity, and inclusivity. With her foundation of Catholic values and undeniable connection with the students, Malika will build on Maryvale’s strong tradition of high caliber academics, leadership development, and deep commitment to individualized education.
