Development of the Maine Ocean School curriculum is currently in progress. The ocean-related theme that makes Maine Ocean School unique will permeate all learning activities in and out of every classroom. The academic program will provide a complete high school curriculum that exceeds state standards in eight content areas: Career & Education Development, English Language Arts, Health & Physical Education, Mathematics, Science & Technology, Social Studies, Visual & Performing Arts, and World Languages. In addition to these core content areas, specialized academic programs focused on Marine Science, Transportation, Engineering, and Management will be individually pursued by Maine Ocean School students based on their interests. 

On the 15th of February 2017 we met our goal of submitting a plan to the Maine State legislature's Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs. Thank you to all involved who helped make this possible!
