NGSS Aligned Curriculum
Our ocean science curriculum incorporates nationwide science standards to give students the opportunity to learn about, connect with, and conserve our planet's oceans while achieving credit within their own educational institution.
We bring in experts from the field to fulfill the needs of the programs that we create. Our unique team of naturalists, scientists, outdoor educators, and biologists have field experience from the farthest stretches of the planet and every ocean in-between.
OYA's virtual content is presented on an interactive e-learning platform and is purposefully designed to easily adapt to your students curricular needs. Our courses are compatible with traditional k-12, private and homeschool systems.

The Ocean Youth Academy is a non-profit organization who's mission is to provide a sustainable model of education that connects youth with the ocean and the wonders of our natural world. Our experienced team brings the passion and knowledge from the field right to your home or classroom.
