Located on 100-plus acres in the Greenspring Valley, Maryvale's campus with sprawling woods, nature trails, streams and waterfalls is an idyllic setting for a school. The centerpiece of the picturesque campus is Wickcliffe Castle, modeled after Warwick Castle in Warwickshire, England. Completed in 1916, the Tudor-style building was the home of Dr. and Mrs. Walter F. Wickes and their five children.
Today, the castle stands as a reminder of the school's rich history from a private home to a boarding school and now as a college preparatory institution. The Castle houses a chapel, library, administrative offices and classrooms. The Great Hall is a gathering place for music, lectures, holiday events, dances and even wedding receptions for many Maryvale alumnae.
Considered one of the largest private residences in the area at the time, Wickcliffe has 65 rooms. The largest room, the Great Hall, was often the location for lavish entertainment. In 1945, after the death of his wife, Dr. Wickes sold the estate, including many of its furnishings, to the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur — establishing it as Maryvale Trinity College Preparatory School, a girls' boarding school.
The Middle School building stands adjacent to the Castle, overlooking the woods. On the other side of the Castle is the former Carriage House, now used as classrooms. Erinn McCarthy Humanities Hall, the newest building on campus, features a state-of-the-art theater, a Mac lab, additional classrooms, a technology resource center as well as choral and instrumental music rooms with practice suites. Recent campus upgrades include an artificial turf field, a regulation track with field event facilities, practice fields and a new softball field.
