WHAT IS THE ACTIVE LEARNING ECOSYSTEM?
Personalized Learning Experience for Students

We put students at the center of hands-on learning with technology that is built into the fabric of the curriculum. Students actively participate in the learning process by doing, making and interacting with each other and the environment around them, anytime and anywhere.

With our revolutionary approach, it’s no surprise 97 percent of Maryville graduates obtain a job in their chosen field or attend graduate school within six months of graduation.
