"Home of the SHARKS" website. This website has been prepared in the hope that it will become for parents, students and visitors to the site, a valuable source of school news and timely information...
Ocean Academy is a small therapeutic school that offers educational services to students that need a more structured, nurturing environment to be successful prior to be able to return to a public school setting. As part of Ocean Mental Health Services, we work cooperatively with students and their families to provide support and services.. .
It is the responsibility of Ocean Academy to provide an educational program that will enable its students to develop their potential to the fullest extent. Ocean Academy must provide the leadership to create a therapeutic environment that promotes the development of emotional, intellectual and social growth of its students. It is Ocean Academy's goal to have its students become self-sustaining and contributing members of society. .
Currently ages 9 to 21 (Younger student will be considered on a case by case basis). Potential students must participate in an intake with Ocean Academy Staff prior to admission to determine if our program can address their needs.
We believe the best decisions are those made by a team with the parent as an equal participant.
Students are referred to Ocean Academy by their local school district's Child Study Team.
As required by the Individuals with Disablilities Education Act(IDEA), the district pays tuition and round-trip transportation. There is no cost to parents.
We encourage parents and school districts to visit our School and learn more about our curriculum, classrooms, our use of instructional and assistive technology and facilities.
