The Island School Summer Term
The Island School Summer Term (6 weeks) is based on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. Students and teachers at The Island School engage in a process of inquiry in order to discover sustainable solutions to real-world problems. Using Eleuthera’s cultural and environmental landscape, students explore their classes outside of the traditional classroom setting through student-centered academics and outdoor programs that support personal growth and leadership development. The Summer Term is an active study program that includes investigations in Marine Ecology and Human Ecology, and courses that will introduce you to marine research and environmental management practices. Similar to our Semester, summer courses have a strong field component to them. You’ll explore local ecosystems alongside scientists at our Cape Eleuthera Institute, as you focus your studies on ecology, research, and sustainable development.
