Today marks the official ground breaking ceremony for the new OA building in Caye Caulker. This project is an important milestone for the development and growth in the education system for the island. It is indeed a happy and exciting occasion. This project has been long awaited for and is now finally materializing.

It is an effort from The Minster of education Patrick Faber, Minster of tourism and aviation Manuel Heredia Jr., the village council and the OA body who have been lobbying effortlessly for this dream to become a reality.

The new structure is being built on 5-acres of land in the North West area of Bahia Puesta Del Sol.

The new 5-acre campus will feature state-of-the-art facilities needed on campus to accommodate the students and teachers. The project is being funded by the Caribbean development Bank. It is overwhelming that we're getting this new facility. Ocean Academy High School Principal Heidi Curry said. "We want the very best for our students, and we're excited for it to open."

If all goes as planned, the new campus will be ready for students by the 2021 school year.


It is a proud day for Caye Caulker and for Ocean Academy High School as we break ground for the new pre-primary and high school campus.

We were honored with the following dignitaries:

Honourable Patrick Faber, Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Education
Honourable Manuel Heredia, Minister of Tourism & Civil Aviation Dr. Carol Babb, Chief Education Officer
Dr. Corinth Mortar-Lewis, former President of the University of Belize
Mrs. Heidi Curry, Ocean Academy Principal & Founder
Mrs. Seleny Villanueva-Pott, CCVC Chair
Ms. Sayonara Pasos, Chair of O.A. Board of Governors
