Part of graduation requirements is accumulating 3.5 PE “points” or credits, and there are four ways in which to do so:
PE Independent Study credit is intended for students who wish to undertake specialized physical activities outside of those offered at Marin Academy. The amount of time required for an independent PE activity may not be less than 20 hours per academic year to earn a half (.5) PE point, and students may not receive PE points in increments smaller than a half point. Students must work with a sponsor (other than a parent) who will verify with a signature that the independent study has been completed. Other signatures required to complete the Independent Study Form are: a parent, advisor, the Class Dean, and the Assistant Athletic Director. Independent Study Forms are available in the Athletic Director’s Office and online. PE Independent Study cannot be undertaken prior to a student’s ninth-grade year.
