Maine Ocean School programs are unique because every class (even English, Art, Science, Social Studies, PE, etc.) will have an ocean theme to engage and motivate student learning. We will also offer flexible opportunities to explore different disciplines within marine-related career paths, through specialized 'tracks'. Another unique aspect of Maine Ocean School is the opportunity to achieve professional credentials like Merchant Mariner Certificate (MMC), Transportation Worker Identification Card (TWIC), and more.
