Great Hearts is committed to an individualized approach to college counseling that focuses on finding the right fit for each student. The emphasis of the program is on helping students discover who they are as learners and emerging adults. Throughout their years at Maryvale Prep, our students learn to be comfortable in the worlds of both ideas and practicality, understanding the relationship between the two. This serves our students particularly well when selecting a college to experience.

Maryvale Preparatory Academy is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, along with the Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling and complies with the NACAC Code of Ethics and Professional Practices (CEPP).

This page is designed as a resource for students, parents, and colleges. Below you will find helpful resources and links.
