College Counseling

Exploring college options should be an exciting and rewarding experience for high school students and their families. Thanks to the guidance of our experienced College Counseling team, Maret students are well prepared for this adventure.

We work with students to identify a wide range of college and post-graduation options that complement their achievements, goals, abilities, and talents. Our goal is thoughtful, low-stress college search that helps each student put their best foot forward and ultimately find a great match for their post-Maret education.

A Team Approach

Overview

Beginning in the eleventh grade, students, parents/guardians, and counselors collaborate throughout the college search, application, and admissions processes. Like any team, each teammate has specific responsibilities. We will be happy to meet with students, or students and their parents together, at any time throughout the process.

College Athletics and Recruitment

Many students who have enjoyed playing sports at Maret want to continue to compete in college. College athletics are a great way to meet new people, provide structure to your day, represent your school, and stay in shape. Still, the recruitment process and how it influences college admissions can be a mystery. Maret’s coaches work closely with the college counseling office as well as with students, parents, and college recruiters to present prospective varsity players to their best advantage.
