Our Permanent Home: Capital Campaign 2020

Founded in 2011, the school has rapidly expanded to its current K-5th grade and 112 students, and in order to continue to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards we must now invest in a permanent home.

With your support to raise $3,300,000, the school can move into its own building, refurbished to meet the needs of future generations.

Eliminating the high lease payments will improve the school’s financial position and allow greater investment in its students and teachers. The additional indoor and outdoor space, and upgraded marine science lab, will allow Ocean Studies to fulfill its goal of incorporating a middle school in 2021. The new facility will be hurricane proof and provide a safe educational environment, indoors and out.

Recognizing the need to educate our youth in order to preserve and protect the fragile South Florida environment, Ocean Studies Charter School is committed to providing a unique foundation for students to become scientists, mathematicians, writers, freethinkers, guardians of our waters and responsible citizens of the world. 


Ocean Studies is an A-rated public school based on the best practices of accelerated learning, and offers a rigorous academic program, producing students who meet or exceed the Florida State Standards in English, language arts, math, science, and social studies. The school’s success lies in its marine science program and weekly field labs that ensure all students explore and interact with the natural environment around them, thereby stimulating an interest in research and experimentation. This, along with its Montessori foundation, nurtures curiosity,  creativity, and imagination, encouraging children to become independent and self-motivated learners.
