At Marin Christian Academy, we’re committed to investing in every student spiritually, socially, and academically so that they can lead healthy, successful, and purposeful lives.

Build a foundation of character and life skills

Many parents today are concerned about their child’s future and want to make sure that they have the life skills and strength of character needed to thrive in today’s challenging world.

At Marin Christian Academy, we believe that the key to lifelong success is strong character development in a challenging and nurturing educational environment.

Today, MCA graduates are sought after by universities for their leadership, academic distinction, and strength of character, and embody our 40 year tradition of excellence by attending prestigious schools like Concordia University, University of California Berkeley, and Seattle Pacific University.

Give your child the education they need to reach their God-given potential, and experience the joy of seeing them flourish.

The Marin Christian Academy Way

Character Development

We develop students who are grounded by the strength of character necessary to succeed in a competitive, pluralistic world.

Academic Excellence

We are dedicated to academic excellence by keeping our class sizes small and using an accredited curriculum that focuses on technology and the arts.

A Life of Service

We encourage students to glorify God by using their individual strengths and abilities to serve their local communities.

Jenny Jones

An absolute blessing

"As I reflect on the end of the school year, I want to share my gratitude for all of you, MCA, and the entire third grade class. The move from San Ramon Elementary to MCA mid year was risky (were we doing the right thing?), but it was an absolute blessing. I am so grateful for MCA and all of you. Thank you for welcoming my little guy and providing him with the social, emotional, and academic needs he was craving. Brayden is very happy at MCA and we look forward to a brand new year together in the Fall. Thank you for all that you do, see you at graduation."

Our Vision...

is to equip students to serve the Lord and become leaders who desire to impact their world by their commitment to learn and live with Christian character.

We will be forever grateful.

"We had such a fabulous school year that I feel compelled to write some of my thoughts. We would like to thank all of the teachers in partnership with Jesus Christ that Mari recovered from her previous experience and ended up being accepted to a great college. The teachers at NBCA are the best as they were able to get Mari to engage with her classes and thrive. We will be forever grateful."

My Teacher is an angel...

"Today in the car, Tennyson, who is not effusive, said, “I am ready for summer break but I do not want 5th grade to be over because I won’t get to see Mrs. McElroy everyday.” Sennett said, “You can see her next year when you drop me off at school.” Tennyson said, “It is not the same as getting to be with her everyday, you will see, she is an angel.”
