College Counseling

MA's College Counseling Office believes that the college search process is an integral component of your education.

During the process of deciding what to do after high school, students will learn more about themselves and their future needs. It can be a time of great discovery and development as students transition to a life of increased freedom and responsibility. Our office defines success by the following four goals:

Choices

Every student should have choices in where they can attend college.

Self-Awareness

Students should learn about themselves throughout the process.

Autonomy

Throughout the college search and application process, students should begin to take ownership over their goals and organization.

Self-Worth

While college can be a transformative and impactful time in a person's life, our office challenges students to identify intrinsic and internal sources of fulfillment.

Success in this process requires an open mind, strong communication, and a willingness to stretch boundaries. Our goal is to not only aid students in transitioning from Marin Academy, but think critically about how to make large decisions in general.
 
We look forward to working with you!
