Maret is proud to have piloted the now multi-school Horizons program. Started at Maret School more than a decade ago, Horizons six-week summer enrichment program and school year Saturdays are designed to help a diverse group of K-8 children from low-income families to:
- develop a lifelong interest in learning
- advance academic gains over the summer
- improve achievement in school.
Today, Horizons Greater Washington has expanded from Maret to other schools in the metropolitan area. In true public/private collaboration, independent schools donate their campus and facilities, while partner public school students attend the program. The Maret community participates in Horizons as teachers, Horizons Assistant Teachers (HATs), and volunteers.
