Marin Academy's athletic mission is to develop in body, mind, and spirit, scholar athletes who commit to their teams, act with integrity, and compete with sportsmanship, character and pride.
The understanding of an interscholastic athletic program as a co-curricular activity is an integral part of the total education and growth experience at Marin Academy. We at Marin Academy recognize the life lessons that can be taught through athletics, and understand how important the reinforcement of lessons learned in the classroom is to our student-athletes' experiences.
Marin Academy is a long-time member of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). The PCA and member schools recognize the value of winning a contest; however, the focus is more so on the importance of the life lessons that can be taught through athletics. PCA states: "We Honor The Game Here." Marin Academy uses this idea as a guiding principle in our approach to interscholastic athletics. We are not only helping to shape and make better athletes, but better people.
