Welcome to The Island School

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. With the campus and surrounding ocean as our laboratories, we partner with a world class science research facility.

Together, we engage in the process of inquiry in order to discover sustainable solutions to real world problems. We explore the framework of Eleuthera’s cultural and environmental landscape through student-centered academics, outdoor programs that support personal growth and leadership development, and outreach programs that practice a project-based approach to local collaboration. The Island School experience culminates in the beginning of a lifelong educational journey, with more self-confident students leaving as engaged global citizens, empowered to be active leaders of their generation.

What if your science class involved doing research that mattered to a nation?

What if your campus was not only your classroom, but your home?

What if sustainability was not a club, but a way of life?

What if it was more important to ask questions than to answer them?

What if your education was not about what you know, but what you discover?
