The mission of the Marin Academy Parents’ Association (MAPA) is to create a welcoming and inclusive community for all families by providing programs and activities that enhance school life for the entire MA community, including students, faculty, staff, parents, and guardians. 

The MAPA Executive Board and nearly 100 committee chairs oversee a wide variety of events and programs, both on campus and in the wider community. MAPA hosts events for adults, such as potluck dinners by grade, parent education evenings, and community service activities. For students, MAPA offers treat days, grade-specific events, and support of arts and athletic events. For faculty and staff, MAPA hosts several appreciation breakfasts and luncheons throughout the school year. Upcoming MAPA events are listed on the MA.org calendar

MAPA strongly encourages parents and guardians to get involved; opportunities are varied and are designed to fit into parents’ busy lives. You can get more information on getting involved by checking out volunteer opportunity descriptions and then completing the MAPA Volunteer and Interest Form. The more you tell us, the more we can keep you informed of events you may find worthwhile. Each parent/guardian should complete this form. Checking a box on the form does not commit you to a job or a specific event, rather it helps us communicate with you most efficiently. You can complete or update this form any time.

The list of Executive Board members for MAPA can be found on the MA website. Any of these parents are happy to answer questions and help you to get involved.
