Frequently Asked Questions  |  Admission

  • What are the prerequisites for gaining admission to Maine Ocean School?

The Admissions Committee will be looking for students who are interested in the ocean and show potential for success. The selection of students will be evaluated in a holistic way that emphasizes potential and not just GPA.  Applicants are evaluated on the following criteria: Application, Written or Video Essay, and 2-3 References. We are looking for students who will be in 9-11th grade for Fall 2018.

  • How many students will be enrolled in the school?

As with many new schools, we plan to start small and increase enrollment capacity as we grow. In our first year 2018-2019 we will enroll up to 30 students.

  • Where will Maine Ocean School students come from?

Students from all over the state of Maine will have an equal opportunity to attend the school. We intend to meet our enrollment capacity while maximizing regional diversity from around the state. Students from other states and countries may attend the school on a space-available basis by paying the cost of tuition, fees, and room & board.
