Summer Marine Science Program





Application directions for the summer Marine Science Program will be passed out by science teachers at all schools during the second week of February.  Parents/guardians must complete part 1 of the application at our website.  Application student essays, part 2, will be due back to science teachers by March 4th.  Student essay forms can also be downloaded at any time from the website.  Please visit us at and click on the Marine Science link.  The link also will have a complete day by day curriculum for each grade level, parent information, and a video (also below) from last year’s program. 

This summer program is available to all students currently in grades five through seven and has been sponsored by the school district since 1982.  Hurry do not miss out, only two eight-day sessions are held at Gamble Rogers Middle School with bus transportation provided.  The dates for the sessions this summer will be June 6th through June 16th and June 20th through June 30th (Monday-Thursday).  Small classes of 12-15 students are separated by grade level.  All instructors in the program are St. Johns County School District teachers.

The Marine Science Program is a carefully designed experience for responsible students who are interested in learning about our local marine environments.  Learning is “hands on” in the field with students kayaking, canoeing, boating, hiking, snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, (stand up paddleboarding), etc.
