Why MA?

Learn with Joy

How do I keep things in balance?

Too many high schools fail to consider the role that joy can play in enhancing the learning process. If school is nothing but a slog through material—or worse, a high-stakes pressure cooker—too many students burn out or disengage.
Marin Academy believes high school should be joyful.
Our formula for a joyful high-school experience is the perfect blend of intellectualism, creativity, athleticism, compassion, and fun. Our grads tell us that that found satisfaction and pleasure from the mix of these things together. And from the knowledge that they could turn to the MA community for guidance and support.
Because just being a teenager is hard enough.

How do we do it?
