Welcome to Marin Academy! On behalf of the entire Marin Academy community, we are thrilled to welcome you and share with you what makes MA the most relevant education in the Bay Area.

Our formula for a joyful high school experience is to create a perfect blend of intellectualism, creativity, athleticism, compassion, and fun. We know that the best education occurs in a learning environment that encourages many voices, and that educational excellence means that classrooms are the starting point for a journey of learning, not the end.

Inside and outside of the classroom, MA students are empowered to reflect deeply and apply their knowledge. Our curriculum allows students to look at problems from multiple perspectives, to analyze, and to synthesize until solutions are in view. As a result, MA students are as well-prepared as they are well-rounded, and are uniquely qualified to embrace and solve the challenges of the 21st century. 

Below you will see the myriad ways you can get to know MA and connect with our community.  You will also be able to begin signing up for admissions events on September1 at noon. Please remember that all event registration and the application process itself happens through Ravenna. Your first step is to create a Student Profile, find Marin Academy in the School Directory, and click “Apply.” Please note that MA has adopted a test-free policy for the 2021-22 admissions season. Students have a myriad of opportunities to share their many skills and talents through our comprehensive application process.

Please feel free to connect with us directly at We look forward to getting to know you!
