Planning your visit to MA

New to recruiting in this area? Here are some approximate driving times to help you plan your high school visits in the area (depending on traffic, of course):

  • 30-40 minutes from the northern part of San Francisco (e.g., San Francisco University High School or the Bay School) OR from the northern part of the East Bay Area (e.g., Albany, El Cerrito, or Saint Mary’s High Schools or Making Waves Academy)
  • 20-25 minutes from Tamalpais High School or Novato High School (also home to Marin School of the Arts)
  • 15-20 minutes from San Domenico School or Terra Linda High School
  • 15 minutes from Redwood High School
  • 10 minutes from Branson School, Marin Catholic High School, or Sir Francis Drake High School
  • 5 minutes from San Rafael High School

Visiting MA

We would love for you to visit us and give you an opportunity to meet with our wonderful students. Only juniors and seniors are invited to attend meetings with college representatives. All visits are scheduled after school — either at 2:30 p.m. or 2:50 p.m. depending on the day’s schedule.

We are now using using SCOIR to schedule rep visits during the 2018-19 academic year! This service is free to colleges and it allows reps to plan trips in a map view, see availability of multiple high schools at a time, create virtual visits, and sync with your personal calendars. Our availability schedule is set there, so please create an account and schedule a time to meet with our students in the fall. Please contact Moriah Buckley if you need help registering with SCOIR. She will be happy to assist you in that process. If the only date you can make is already full, she can internally add you to the calendar in that specified slot.
If you would like to conduct interviews on campus, we would be happy to help you with that as well.

Parking and Office Location

College counseling is located on the 2nd Floor of Foster Hall (Building #4).

We suggest parking along 5th Street, E Street (between 5th St.and Mission Ave.) or in the parking lot on Mission Ave. (between E St. and Bryn Mawr Dr.) View a map of campus.
