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 currently accepting late applications which are reviewed on a space-available basis. However, please note that we are fully enrolled for the 2018-2019 school year at this time. Please remember that applications do not automatically "roll over" to the next admission cycle.
The 2019-2020 application season will open in mid-September. Please keep an eye on our website around the start of the school year to sign up for a tour and learn about other admission events and deadlines. Tours are usually offered in the morning of most school days starting in mid-September through early January. If you're interested in touring our campus this spring to get a head start on the 2019-2020 admission process, please contact our office directly.

- FIRST GRADE: 5 - 7 new students
- FOURTH GRADE: 7 - 10 students

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, creed, color, national origin, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. 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.
If you have any questions, feel free to call or email us at 202.939.8814 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you on campus soon!
