In 1997, Marin Catholic High School opened the Academic Support Center to provide assistance and services to students with diagnosed learning differences. The program currently serves approximately eighty students. These students work with specially trained staff and participate in the voluntary program at no additional cost to families.
 
MISSION STATEMENT
