Poseidon Academy

Application Period is closed for 2022/2023. Thanks for applying!

At the end of every eighth grade year, students apply to be part of the award-winning Poseidon Academy of Marine Science & Engineering. Poseidon refers to itself as a “school within a school”. They must follow strict guidelines pertaining to their schedules. They are required to take a science class every year, including 3 years of science, and 3 years of engineering.  These classes are designed to teach students to solve problems in the world’s oceans, and prepare them for jobs in all career paths.

Every year, students who are enrolled in this enriching program take trips to places like Catalina Island, Disneyland, Sea World, and more.  Here they learn about Marine Science by snorkeling, kayaking, doing experiments, and other activities. These students form a family-like bond, having classes with the same peers every year while participating in fun interactive science courses.
