Mission & Philosophy

"Our job at Marin Catholic is to get you into Heaven, but on the way into a great college."
Former President, Bishop Thomas A. Daly

School Motto

Duc in Altum: "Into the Deep"
Our school motto, Duc in Altum, comes from Chapter 5 of Luke's Gospel when Jesus asks Peter to "cast your nets out into the deep."  We hope each student learns to trust in the Lord, goes out into the deep--spiritually, academically, artistically, athletically--and in return has their nets filled. 

Mission and Philosophy

Lead students to Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, truly present in the Eucharist, is the source and summit of everything we do. In partnership with parents, we form flourishing men and women of virtue through an excellent academic, artistic, athletic, and spiritual education.  At the core of our practice is the student-teacher relationship where our educators model Christian virtue and witness to the Roman Catholic faith. Marin Catholic graduates, rooted in faith and animated by the Sacraments, recognize their call to be saints who bring the light and hope of Christ to the world.
Marin Catholic is a member of the Duc in Altum Schools Collaborative.
