Ocean Academy is the first high school on Caye Caulker (2008) with 64 students enrolled in Forms 1-4, a teaching staff of 7, 1 counsellor, 1 Principal. Ocean Academy champions several innovative and award-winning school initiatives, and is accredited by the Ministry of Education.

Thank you, in advance, for your interest in supporting education on Caye Caulker and for keeping connected to our roots and home country.
