School Motto and Values


Preserving our Heritage . . .

Caye Caulker’s heritage is rich with cultural and environmental wealth.  Ocean Academy is committed to preserving this heritage through:


1) building awareness about the island’s cultural history and ecosystem (littoral forest, mangroves, turtle grass, and coral reef),


2) teaching an interdisciplinary curriculum,


3) facilitating student-led, primary research,


4) building leadership skills, and


5) encouraging activism.

Therefore, our goal in education is not simply academics, but an overall commitment to appreciating, respecting and preserving our island’s heritage so that future generations may know the beauty of Caye Caulker that exists today.
