Tuition Assistance

Access creates opportunity. We must open pathways to an MA education for all talented students, regardless of their financial circumstances. Dedicated scholarship support helps remove financial barriers to learning at MA.

We know that diversity in all its forms enhances the educational and social experiences of our students. This calls us to open doors to a life-changing education for the Bay Area’s most promising students, regardless of their financial background.

Forward Progress
MA remains committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need for all admitted students. We do this through MA Promise and other forms of tuition assistance. Today, we’ve raised an additional $2 million for expanded tuition assistance, and close to 25% percent of MA students receive financial aid. 

What’s Next?
We need to do more to address the financial challenges faced by low- and middle-income families in a region known to have the highest cost of living in the country. Your campaign dollars will help create access for more students, and in turn, help ensure we build a dynamic learning environment that better reflects the broader fabric of our society.

The tuition assistance program at MA drastically changed my life. It gave me the opportunity to realize my potential and path to building a brighter future through higher education. It's hard to fathom how different my life would have been without that opportunity.

Marin Academy's tuition assistance program allows us to accept the best and brightest students, regardless of financial need, and to enroll the most interesting, dynamic, and talented group of 9th graders every year. Each MA student plays an integral role in co-creating our unique learning environment of encouragement and compassion during their time at MA and go on to be positive catalysts for change, inspiration, and innovation.
