Welcome to Marin Academy! On behalf of the entire Marin Academy community, we are thrilled to welcome you.  

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. This year is certainly a reminder of the importance of these skills! 

Just like MA itself, our admissions process is designed with students at its heart. As you embark upon your high school journey, we are here to help you find a school to make your home. This includes re-imagining the ways you get to know Marin Academy ensuring your time with us is not only informative and safe, but also full of care and meaningful connection. 

MA is committed to an equitable and accessible admissions experience and implements a holistic approach to reviewing each students’ application. Given the unknown nature of how COVID-19 may impact students’ ability to safely access standardized testing, we are taking our test-flexible policy a step further this year: Marin Academy will be test-optional for the 2020-21 school year.  This means that SSAT, ISEE, or HSPT scores will not be required to apply to MA. While students may still choose to submit them, students who choose not to will not be disadvantaged in the process. For more information about the MA application process, click here for our “Application Steps.” 

You will soon notice our admissions transformed to feature 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 August 15. 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 “Explore.”

In the meantime, please feel free to connect with us directly at We look forward to getting to know you very soon!

Warmest regards,
The Marin Academy Admissions Team
