Congratulations Maine Maritime Academy!Yesterday, President William J. Brennan announced that #MaineMaritime has completed the purchase of a four-acre parcel of land at the former Verso paper mill in Bucksport.

The site will be the new Maine Maritime Academy Center for Professional Mariner Development (CPMD), an annex facility that will provide specialized courses for professional mariners, academy-enrolled students, and workforce development.

For professional mariners, the Center will meet the demand for courses that enable mariners to receive certification and credentialing to meet maritime regulatory and industry-sector demands.

Punny! 😆

That’s how Little Rascal got started. Why do you think I have to keep her on the mooring, while all the other boats her size get to be on the float? One day at a time!

THE FOUNDATION

Maine Ocean School Foundation’s Mission

Maine Ocean School Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to support, enhance, expand, and enrich students’ educational experiences through private donations, gifts, and grants. Maine Ocean School Foundation helps to carry out the mission and vision of Maine Ocean School by raising private funds to support programs beyond the core school budget.

Our Board of Directors is a group of dedicated volunteers working hard to raise monies needed to support and assist the Maine Ocean School as it grows.

Our History and Purpose

The Maine Ocean School Foundation was created to raise supplemental funds through grants, gifts from organizations and individuals, and larger corporations to support Maine’s second public magnet school, Maine Ocean School.

As a magnet school, Maine Ocean School receives some funding from the state annually. Those funds alone do not cover the total cost of maintaining the school’s innovative curricula. Because the Maine Ocean School is a public magnet school that accepts students from throughout the state, school funding that is typically covered by resident taxpayer dollars is not available. The Foundation has taken up the challenge of raising funds to provide for activities, equipment, staff training and development, and innovative technology and curricula.

In the near future, the Foundation will be launching a capitol campaign for the purpose of establishing a permanent campus including on site housing.
