Our application for the 2023-2024 school year is completely online; however, if you are having difficulties with the application portal, please email admissions@thesel.org.

Additionally, applications in Spanish are available.

The application must be submitted by January 21, 2023.

The application for MarinSEL does not require a transcript. However, when enrolling in Terra Linda High School, students will need to submit their transcripts. Read more information on TL Enrollment.

NOTE: Exploration Day is a required component of the application process. The Exploration Day will give all student applicants the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a MarinSEL student.

Teacher Assessment:

Please request your teacher assessment through the application portal. Only one teacher assessment is required.

You will be asked to input your teacher’s organization/school, their first name, last name, phone number, and email address. Once this information is inputted, you will be prompted to send them the request. They will receive an email with the teacher 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 28, 2023, one week after the application deadline.

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

Attention Out-of-District Applicants:

The District of Choice (DOC) law, which has been our mechanism for serving high school students living outside our district boundaries, is set to sunset at the end of this school year. As the law is expiring, we will not have legal authority to serve these students. Given this uncertainty, we will not be accepting any new students under DOC for attendance in MarinSEL. We will continue to serve students already attending MarinSEL under DOC for the duration of the current law.

Important Dates:

  • Application Deadline: January 21, 2023
  • Exploration Days: February 4th and February 5th, 2023
    • Exploration Days are a required part of the MarinSEL application process. Students applying must attend one Exploration Day. Please see application for more information.
