Welcome to Maret. We are proud of the many ways we ignite our students' potential, develop the mind, nurture curiosity, welcome challenge, embrace joy, and build a school community that is equitable and inclusive.

We are fully enrolled at the time for the 2020-2021 school year, but our team is happy to speak with you virtually should you have any questions as we work remotely. Please note that the 2020-2021 admission application will open later this fall.


COL Scenarios and Options for 2020–2021

For the upcoming school year, we have developed three scenarios. Although fluid and subject to change depending on the restrictions posed by the pandemic, they are solid models that frame what school might look like in the fall. All scenarios mirror each other to the extent possible. Sample schedules and other details are outlined on the COL Lower, Middle, and Upper School sections.
