We strongly encourage eighth-grade students to schedule a visit to Marin Catholic. If you are not able to participate in a student visit date, we invite all students to attend our Open House on Sunday, October 20th.

Student visits are offered on various dates beginning in September. Students should arrive by 8:15 am and will be dismissed at 12:45 pm. We ask that students arrive in MC dress code attire: a collared shirt and pants, shorts or a skirt in good repair (jeans are acceptable 
but no athletic wear). The day begins with a presentation in our Library Media Room beginning at 8:20am followed by a guided tour of campus. Your student will then be introduced to their MC student guide and have the opportunity to sit in on two morning classes and enjoy a snack from our cafe. Visitors will experience a morning as an MC student as well as learn about our offerings in music, theater, visual arts, athletics, clubs, student government, campus ministry and more. At the end of their visit, we will send each student home with a sack lunch. Our goal is that no student leaves a visit day with any unanswered question.

Parent Tours

September-November, Various Mornings
9:15am-12:00pm

To register for a Parent Tour, please click on the "Register for Events Here" box above.

Parent school day tours are available various morning from 9:15am-12:00pm beginning in September and ending in November. Parent tours begin with an introduction to the school's philosophy and mission from President Tim Navone and Principal Chris Valdez, and an admissions process overview by Director of Admissions Janie Rockett.  Parents are then given a tour of the campus by Tim Navone, during which they will meet a variety of teachers and learn more about the curriculum. This visit allows for small groups of parents to experience life on the Marin Catholic campus during a regular school day.
