MISSION & COMMUNITY

MISSION

Sponsored by the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Marin Catholic is a Roman Catholic college preparatory school serving young men and women.  Consistent with our Gospel values, we are committed to the education of the whole person.  As a community that values faith, knowledge and service, we provide our students with a spiritual, academic, and extra-curricular environment.

We expect our students, through their experiences in the classroom and as active members of the school community, to develop the attributes of an educated person: responsibility, both personal and social; critical ability; and appreciation for the complexity of the world around us. In partnership with parents, we hope to instill in our students the confidence that will empower them, as informed and compassionate individuals, to effect change in our world.  We are committed to learning as a lifelong process.
