At Marin Academy, we believe that academic excellence should push the boundaries of both what and how to learn. An MA education empowers students to move beyond subject matter mastery to become creative, critical thinkers and compassionate global citizens.
Every day, MA teachers and students work side-by-side to analyze, synthesize, and create new ways to understand our world. We welcome and encourage many voices, because today’s complex issues are best solved from a variety of perspectives.
Our unique approach to education values the whole child. We are not simply preparing students for a particular stage in life, but our education is for life. At MA, we help students cultivate the tools they need to live their lives fully.
