From Marin Academy

Marin Academy has long been recognized as a leader in rigorous experiential education. We are known for innovative curricular and co-curricular programs that engage students in real-world topics and in learning by doing.

Both in and out of the classroom, we encourage students to ask tough questions and initiate difficult conversations. By pushing the boundaries of not only what, but also how to learn, an MA education empowers students as learners and leaders.

Our unique educational approach inspires MA teachers and students to work side-by-side, immersing themselves deeply in their subjects while honing the ability to think critically and creatively. And because many voices are welcomed and encouraged at MA, our students cultivate the tools they need to live their lives fully—and the inspiration to contribute as compassionate citizens to our world.
