Overview

The Island School offers a transformative educational semester and summer journey. High school students from around the world join our intentional community of teachers and learners seeking to transcend traditional education models.

Now, more than ten years into the journey, the organization has expanded to include a community middle school and resource center, the Deep Creek Middle School (DCMS) for local students, and the Cape Eleuthera Institute (CEI) that focuses on marine research and sustainable development initiatives. Our community at Cape Eleuthera is modeling a shift toward a more livable future. For all who come to live and learn at Cape Eleuthera, there is an opportunity to discover that people can make a difference – that we can begin to turn the tide and effect positive change in the way we live.

The Island School believes that young people, given the right tools, can do just about anything- including change the world. The tools we offer will help you dive deep into the ocean and dig even deeper into yourself in order discover new sources of your own strength – the strength to ask tough questions, to live well with less, and to believe that you can become a force for positive change in the world. At The Island School, we will ask you to turn off your cell phones and turn on to your surroundings – rich laboratories of learning that include the Caribbean Ocean, Bahamian Culture, and our own vibrant community of scientists, faculty and students. By pushing the usual boundaries of classroom bound education, we create an environment in which critical thinking skills are just a normal part of daily life. A semester at The Island School involves hard work, community living, and constantly facing new challenges.
