Please request your teacher assessment through the application portal. Two (2) teacher/mentor assessments are required.

Once this information is inputted, you will be prompted to send them the request. They will receive an email with the assessment request to their inbox, where they will be asked to follow the instructions there.

The assessment request is the last page of the application. You can skip to the end, submit the request, then go back to complete your application.

Assessments will be accepted until January 15, 2024.

Email admissions@thesel.org with any questions regarding teacher/mentor assessments.

Attention Out-of-District Applicants:

The District of Choice (DOC) law has been our mechanism for serving high school students living outside our district boundaries. As the law is expiring, we will not have legal authority to serve these students. Therefore, students residing outside of San Rafael City Schools District are not eligible for acceptance due to the District of Choice law ending. We will continue to serve students already attending MarinSEL under DOC for the duration of the current law.

Important Dates:

  • Application and Teacher/Mentor Assessment Deadline: January 15, 2024
  • Exploration Days: February 3rd and February 4th, 2024
    • Exploration Days are a required part of the MarinSEL application process. Students applying must attend one Exploration Day. Please see application for more information.
