Curriculum

Students in the Marine Science Cohort (9th and 10th) grades will be grouped in their science class. This allows content to be taught that highlights marine science as well as providing these students with marine science enrichment. Students in the Academy will take OCN150 Intro to Oceanography and BIO170 Biology of the Sea. In addition to course work students will participate in fieldwork, labs and internships with UNCW. All students in the program will need to complete Quarterly Events and participate in a Science Club.
