MAOS | Monterey Academy of Oceanographic Science


The Monterey Academy of Oceanographic Science (MAOS) brings innovation to public education. Founded in 1994 at Monterey High School. MAOS was designed by experienced teachers who saw the need for a challenging curriculum within the public school system, for students with a desire and ability to excel.


The MAOS program emphasizes four years of math, science and English, broadly, but not exclusively, applied to general scientific and oceanographic research. The integrated curriculum is designed to help young adults become good students and good learners. A rich variety of experiences is provided through field studies, guest speakers, internships, and challenging assignments.
