Our Vision

World Ocean School’s work is empowering and inspiring for students of all ages, races, monetary backgrounds, and experiences. Through engaging and hands-on programs at sea, World Ocean School inspires students to advance academically and vocationally, motivates students to be engaged community members, enables students to feel appreciated and valued in a unique environment, and provides a platform where students feel strong and smart. 

Learn more
  • 73% of World Ocean School students are from under-resourced communities.
  • Over 21,500 students have participated in World Ocean School programming since 2004.
  • World Ocean School engages an equal number of male and female students.
  • Students who participate in World Ocean School programming come from a wide spectrum of economic backgrounds.

How World Ocean School Helps

World Ocean School provides programs aboard our historic flagship vessel Schooner Roseway (or other tall ships) which challenge a diverse population of students academically, physically, and emotionally. Students' participation in these programs broaden their perspectives of the world, their communities, and themselves. 


Though we primarily operate in Boston, MA during the summer and in St. Croix, VI during the winter, we are proud to have engaged students from all over the globe since 2004.
