Maryvale's talented, dedicated teachers and administrators, who regularly experience the latest in professional development, get to know every girl. We take the time to understand her hopes and dreams, which allows us to map out a personalized path to grow her confidence and ensure her success in the classroom, on the field, in the theater and out in the community.
We recognize that each student, in both the Middle School and Upper School, is different and develops at her own pace. Our faculty and staff are trained to recognize when a girl may need more support or more rigor. Beginning in the sixth grade, every girl receives individualized attention tailored specifically for her academic, spiritual and personal journey. Then, moving into the Upper School, students delve deeper into our innovative curriculum that features four levels of learning — College Preparatory, Accelerated, Honors and Advanced Placement.
Further, Maryvale’s Center for Academic Excellence allows for additional tailored support and enrichment to meet each student’s needs and help her surpass her goals.
By the time a Maryvale student reaches graduation, she is a confident individual, an independent thinker and a compassionate, responsible woman with an education that will serve her for a lifetime.
Maryvale has current school memberships with National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), International Coalition of Girls' School (ICGS), Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools (AIMS), National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), and National Business Officers Association (NBOA).
Maryvale is accredited through Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools.
