MAPA Outreach and Inclusion

MAPA Parent Outreach and Inclusion works to ensure that the Marin Academy Parents' Association (MAPA) and the MA parent body is inclusive, open to and welcoming of every MA parent/guardian by identifying barriers to inclusion and working to eliminate them. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact MAPA VP for Outreach and Inclusion Grace Angel, or co-chairs Pam Bonnie and Trigg McLeod at

Upcoming Events

Friday, April 20 at 9:00 a.m. at Sorich Ranch Park
Come join fellow MA parents of all grades for a morning hike in San Anselmo. We will meet at 9:00 am at Sorich Ranch Park for a moderate one hour loop. Dogs are welcome and there is an off leash area at the top of the fire road with scenic views! To get to the trailhead, take Sir Francis Drake Boulevard west, turn right on San Francisco Boulevard and proceed a half-mile or so to the gravel parking lot at the end of the road. There is room for 16 cars but if full you can park in the adjacent neighborhood. The trail will be muddy if we have had wet weather so please plan accordingly. To find out more and RSVP, click here. We hope to see you there!
