    Marin's Community School serves students from 7th-12th grade from throughout the county. The program operates in tandem with Phoenix Academy Charter School. As such, there are two ways to enroll in our programs.

Referral to Marin's Community School

  • As we challenge the traditional identity of alternative education programs, we encourage referrals earlier for students who would benefit from the program we have here.

    To enroll in Marin's Community School

    1) Students must first register with a District (in the area you are residing)
    2) T
    hen students may be referred to our program through the District

    Generally, districts refer students through the Student Attendence Review Board (SARB) or through expulsion. However, we do have students who self-refer, and many who elect to stay with us after the completion of their contracts because they value our programs. In these cases, we would work with the MCOE team as well as the home District to ensure our school is the best placement for the students.
