2012 highlights at Ocean Academy

Thank you!
Thank you!

2012 was a very good year for Ocean Academy students. Your donations are truly making a positive difference in the lives of young Belizeans.  High-school attendance on Caye Caulker is exceeding the rest of the nation: only 40% of high-school age students attend school across Belize while an estimated 70% attend on Caye Caulker.  Your scholarship pledges and recurring donations play a huge role in this success statistic. As the student sign says in the first photo, "thank you for giving us the gift of a lifetime...our education". 

If you can't escape the winter cold this year and come to Belize, then you can still meet the students through video links below:

  • Link#1 - graduates Mercedes, Lilly and Artie talk about what opportunities have opened up to them because of their determination to get an education. 
  • Link #2 - school co-founder Heidi Curry describes Ocean Academy's philosophy and start in 2008. 
  • Link #3  - takes you to our school website where photos and student stories are regularly updated.

Happy New Year from the students and staff of Caye Caulker Ocean Academy!
