We can't wait to share our community with you. Our team is here to guide you through every step of the admission process.


Maret is a non-sectarian independent school. We serve 650 students in grades K-12, all on one campus in Washington, DC. We are proud of the many ways our faculty inspires our students, develops their minds, nurtures their curiosity, challenges them to grow, embraces joy, and builds a school community that is equitable and inclusive.

Typical New Student Enrollment 

Kindergarten 20 new students
First Grade 5–7 new students
Fourth Grade 7–10 new students
Sixth Grade 10–15 new students
Seventh Grade 5–7 new students
Ninth Grade 20–25 new students

*We anticipate 1-3 open spaces in Grades 2-3 for the 2024-25 school year.

Maret Accepts Applications to All Grades 

With the exception of kindergarten, the exact number of openings for our expansion grades (K, 1, 4, 6, 7, 9) varies each year. If you are applying to any other grade level,  the Admission Office will collect applications, teacher recommendations, and grades. However, applicants will be invited to an individual meeting with a teacher or admission officer only if there will be an opening in that particular grade.

Non-Discrimination Policy

Maret School stands firmly behind the principle that the admission of students, the employment of faculty, the operation of programs, and the governance of the School be open to all who are qualified regardless of race, ethnicity, color, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, or creed. We believe that this principle is both firmly grounded in the spirit of American democracy and in keeping with the civil responsibilities of an independent school.
