Why MA?

Welcome Diverse Voices

What If I’m wrong about that?

Our society avoids difficult topics and difficult conversations—conversations that make people uncomfortable.
The Marin Academy community welcomes and encourages many voices. By nature, that means different interpretations based on different perspectives. Starting tough conversations isn’t always easy. But at MA, we offer safe spaces to express opinions, trade perspectives, and learn how to search, question, and stretch oneself to reach greater understanding.
Being in community with diverse voices and perspectives develops the attitudes and behaviors needed to interact effectively in today’s world. Because the conversations that make us uncomfortable are often the most important.

How do we do it?
