We use TADS Online Admissions to process applications for all new students attending our school. We have outlined our application and admissions process below so that you can familiarize yourself with the requirements. Please note that for Kindergarten applicants, a student must be five years of age by September 1st, and that acceptance is based on specific criteria for developmental readiness.
Any questions can be directed to our Admissions Director, Emily Ogden, by calling 415-924-0501 ext. 26 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Kindergarten applicants will attend “K Days”, a mini version of a typical Kindergarten day condensed into one hour. On K Day your child and other applicants will visit the Kindergarten classroom and participate in small group activities. This enables the children to be observed and evaluated in a warm, informal setting. Following the K Day, your child may be called back for an additional formal assessment. If you miss K Days, an individual assessment will be scheduled.
1st – 8th Grade Applicants
Graded level students will meet with our Resource Teacher for an assessment. Students in 3rd Grade and above will also spend the morning “shadowing” in the classroom.

New applicants have priority according to the following criteria:
All new students are accepted on a probationary basis for one school year.
Please note that it is our policy not to accept transfer students into 7th or 8th grade unless the student has been attending a Catholic school and the family is relocating to Marin from out of county or state. Transferring in can be very challenging both academically, socially, and emotionally for a student. This policy exists for the benefit of potential transfers.
