Character and personal growth are an integral part of a Maret education. While useful, grades and test scores are not the only factors we consider in the admission process, and don't always tell us the whole story of your child. As such, we recommend (but do not require) applicants to Upper School take the Character Skills Snapshot (CSS), which provides us with additional, holistic information and illuminates areas where Maret can help your child grow and thrive. The CSS is free for all students that register for the SSAT and is administered online at home.
