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 Gospel values, the school is committed to the education of the whole person. As a community that values faith, knowledge, and service, Marin Catholic provides students with a spiritual, academic, and extra-curricular environment. Students are expected, through their experiences in the classroom and as active members of the school community, to develop attributes including personal responsibility, social responsibility, critical ability, and appreciation for the complexity of the world. In partnership with parents,  Marin Catholic hopes to instill in its students the confidence that will empower them, as informed and compassionate individuals, to effect positive change in our world. In conjunction with its families, Marin Catholic is committed to fostering learning as a lifelong process.
