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
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 Destinations for the Maret Class of 2016
Students from the class of 2015 earned prestigious national recognitions, including National Merit, National Achievement, and National Hispanic Recognition scholarships; The United States Presidential Scholars Award; The Morehead-Cain Scholarship; The Jefferson Scholarship; and others.
For the Class of 2016 (71 students), 20 students will receive a commendation or higher from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
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.
