College Counseling at The Marin School
The College Counseling model at The Marin School is a four year comprehensive program that is guided by “best fit” for each student. This applies to curriculum and course selection, standardized testing plans, and post-graduate placement. Every student and family will work closely with the college counselor through each step of the process and receive personal guidance.
College counseling begins informally in the Freshman year with an emphasis on understanding the TMS curriculum, graduation requirements, and the statewide A-G standards. Sophomore students are guided more specifically on how their courses in high school relate to college study and real-world application. Freshman and Sophomore families gather in the Spring semester for a curriculum information session.
Formal college counseling begins in the spring of the Junior year with family college counseling meetings and will continue through Senior year with full-time personalized support. Through each phase, students are empowered to make confident decisions about their path to graduation and beyond.
