Upper School (9-12)
Our upper school students pursue their passions, leave their marks, and define their futures on our campus, in the community, and beyond.
A healthy blend of academics, arts, athletics, and extracurricular options define Maret’s upper school experience. Students stretch themselves personally and intellectually as they strive to meet their goals and prepare for life beyond our campus.
Upper School students prepare for college with intentional instruction in analytical reading and writing, study skills, laboratory work, and research methods. Essential skills are woven throughout, inspiring students to inquire deeply, think critically, and act responsibly. Working with faculty advisors, students craft a course of study that is appropriate and engaging. Maret’s upper school curriculum is broad and deep with more than 120 courses offered.
Intensive Study Week (ISW)
Students enjoy a week of exploration outside of regular classes during Intensive Study Week in February. Groups of students and faculty embark on a variety of fascinating projects and trips that challenge the mind and certainly rejuvenate the spirit. Want to know more about string theory? Go on tour with Maret's band and chorus? Or learn the basics of podcasting? ISW is the time to explore!
The Davies Exposure and Enrichment Program (DEEP) is a two-week summer program that introduces newly enrolled ninth grade students to the study skills and habits needed to excel in high school. Students work with Maret faculty in small group settings and forge social connections with other new ninth graders to start the fall with strong social connections. All newly enrolling ninth graders are welcome to attend.
