Marin School of the Arts at Novato High School is a vibrant community of artists, thinkers and innovators who explore and grow together in a dynamic public high school. With 13 different arts programs to choose from and a faculty of professional artists, there is a program for every young artist at MSA. We take a holistic approach to arts education and offer students a chance to collaborate, develop artistically and gain confidence in their skills. MSA students push themselves creatively in a supportive environment, share a common passion for the arts, and develop talents that are essential during and after high school, such as critical thinking, confidence and perseverance. We’d love for you to take a tour and then consider joining us on a student shadow day to see if this is the right place for you! It is not necessary to tour or shadow in order to apply for admission to MSA programs.
MSA Family Tours
During the fall semester, students with a parent or guardian may join us for an MSA Family Tour to better understand the depth and breadth of our programs.
These group tours are available on a first come, first served basis by reservation. At the end of the tour, there will be time for questions and answers. We are unable to accommodate individual tours or “drop in” tours due to scheduling issues.
Click on available dates below to register.
We're sorry, we don't have any upcoming tours scheduled at the moment. Please check back later to view newly scheduled tours.
After joining us for the MSA Family Tour, prospective students may sign up to shadow an MSA student. While offering a more in-depth experience of MSA classes, it is not necessary to shadow in order to apply.
Reservation information for Student Shadow Days will be emailed to families after they have completed an MSA Family Tour.
