Advising at MA
Each student at Marin Academy works closely with a faculty or staff member who acts as an advisor.
The school counselor supports students in navigating the challenges of high school and life as an adolescent. The counselor offers students a nonjudgmental and safe space to explore their experience at MA as well as process aspects of their personal lives that may be impacting them. While the school counselor is trained and licensed, MA does not offer long term psychotherapy on campus, and instead will help students and families access outside therapeutic support. The counselor is happy to work with families to find appropriate resources in the community.
Students and families are welcome to get in touch by email or phone to set up a time to meet with the counselor. In addition to supporting the student and parent community, the counselor collaborates and consults with faculty and staff in their roles as teachers and advisors.
Our counselor, Sarah Janoff-Brinn is on campus five days a week from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
