Continuity of Learning (COL)

Because of extended suspension of on-campus educational activities, Maret has implemented its COL plan. An essential priority of COL is to continue to embrace our Mission and Core Values: Respect + Integrity, Excellence + Creativity, The Individual + Connectedness, and Joy.

Our Mission

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.

COL Research & Findings

Given the breadth of perspectives in our community, it is crucial to acknowledge that we are all experiencing this crisis differently and that the lens through which we each evaluate the success of COL will be shaped by the challenges present in our particular household. During the first three weeks of COL, we worked hard to collect and reflect on the wide range of feedback provided by our community about how they are experiencing the program. This data has allowed us to:

  1. Identify areas where community consensus has existed within the responses we received.
  2. In areas where consensus is elusive, create a window through which to see, appreciate, and empathize with members of our community who are experiencing the crisis differently.
