EMBRACING THE FUTURE
A Tradition of Evolution and Innovation

OUR SCHOOL—OUR FUTURE—OUR COMMITMENT

For the past 10 years, Maret has held itself to the broad and ambitious commitments laid out in the School’s 2007 strategic plan, Framework for the Future. It provided context and clear objectives that guided the choices we made as a school and a community.

Maret’s tremendous success since 2007 is a testament to the Framework’s robust vision and the sustained commitment of the community. Building on this solid foundation, we now seek to craft the next set of guideposts for decision-making over the coming five years.

Done well, our Strategic Directions will further propel Maret along its trajectory as a truly outstanding independent school. We will continue to be sustainable, nimble, and relevant as we embrace our future in a fast-changing world.

Maret is a vibrant, K–12, coeducational, independent school in Washington, DC. We ignite our students' potential; foster their academic, artistic, and athletic talents; and promote their well-being. We develop the mind, nurture curiosity, welcome challenge, embrace joy, and build community that is equitable and inclusive.

Our Philosophy about OUR MISSION

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

OUR STRATEGIC DIRECTIONS

Three principles shape our vision. They highlight our belief that the Maret of the future needs to continue to be inclusive, sustainable, effective, agile, and grounded in our values and history. They are the guideposts that will support continued renewal, inform our path, and advance our Mission.

These principles define our strength as an institution and serve as the impetus to direct us forward. Each will need to be properly funded and include substantial professional development for faculty and education for parents. As such, they become the foundation for purposeful and clearly articulated choices.
