Ocean Academy opened on Sept. 1 and is doing well. They have 33 students enrolled at the present time. Here is their website Any help or donations will be greatly appreciated. They have worked incredibly hard to make this happen and it is a wonderful opportunity for the local kids to get a good education. We wish them the best of luck.

So what can we bring? My son and I will be back in January and we'd love to bring some things along. Please tell us what the staff at the school would prefer/need...

Caye Marie has a link to the schools website in her post. Check it out and see. I am coming later in the year and will try to help as much as I can.

Hope to be going slow soon!

This is so fantastic for the young people of CC and their families. Finally a dream realized in prompt time!! Not "island-time", and I LOVE island time!! Thanks to all involved!!!!!!

Any donations via their web site will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, go slow but not when it comes to education!

Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement about the school. We are midway into our second week and all is well. Staff and students are working hard to build an intense and fun learning environment.

We are grateful for any and all support. If you are coming down and interested in bringing supplies, we thank you! (or, if you are willing to carry something down, but are not able to invest in any supplies, contact me and I will send some supplies your way. Just carrying things saves us lots of money). Current needs are:

good books for our library (young adult classics, literary-level contemporary novels, biographies, non-fiction, books about the ocean)

college-level dictionaries

folders with brads


extension cords

printer toner - Brother TN360 (this is a CONSTANT need!):

toner refills:

computer mouse(s)


sports equipment (kayak paddles, soccer balls, basketballs, any sports equipment)

chess sets

musical equipment (especially for our guitar/bass guitar teacher)

an answering machine

And, if you are in a position to provide tuition support, you will make a life-changing impact for the student you sponsor: (even $25 will go a long way as you will increase our list of sponsors, and show a strong network of support for larger grants). We are not funded by the government; we work hard to keep costs down so that any child may receive an education.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us at:

I really wish that I had known about these needs before we came down there at the end of September. I could have brought so much.... frown
