The MSA goal is to prepare students for the rigors of a four-year university science program, with a special emphasis on marine science topics, technology and career opportunities. An experienced and enthusiastic team of teachers, counselors and administrators are working together to maintain a rigorous science-based academy in which all students are engaged and taking responsibility for their education. MSA students are guided, supported and encouraged in their academic pursuits and are provided a solid framework in which they feel safe to accept challenges and create their own educational opportunities.
In addition to the required high school curriculum, MSA students will further their knowledge within the Marine Sciences by taking:
9th Grade: Marine Biology
10th Grade: Marine Careers
11th Grade: Oceanography
12th Grade: Environmental Science or AP Environmental Science
Students in the Marine Science Academy participate with industry partners in many career building and career exploration activities. These activities are designed to expose our MSA students to real world, relevant hands on learning.
