The Maritime Academy of Toledo will offer a unique three-day introductory program where interested students can explore academy experience before deciding whether or not to enroll.

The Academy Introductory Mission (A.I.M.), developed by the school’s teaching staff, will be held Aug. 7 to 9 from 9 a.m. to noon at The Maritime Academy of Toledo at 803 Water St.

“Several of our teachers have agreed to volunteer their time to show prospective students what life is like at The Maritime Academy,” said Renee Marazon, Academy superintendent. “Over the past few months, we have been working with the U.S. Navy on Navy Week – Toledo activities. In part, that has generated numerous inquiries about our curriculum and learning environment. Some students want to enroll, but are not entirely certain it’s the right move.

“As a result, we felt the best way to answer those questions was to give interested students and their families a first-hand experience of our curriculum, our facility, and our nationally recognized Maritime Career Technical Education (CTE) Program before they make a decision on enrollment,” she said.

In addition to the classroom experience, students will get an opportunity to tour the Maumee River on the school’s research vessel, Mariner I. They will also get hands-on experience with the school’s bridge, navigation, and engine room simulators.

“We are the only high school in the state with its own research vessel,” Marazon said. “Our students utilize Mariner I throughout the year for field trips and classroom studies that include marine and environmental research and education. This learning activity adds so much to our school’s science program.”

In addition to the A.I.M. program, the school will offer open house tours the week of Aug. 6 to 10 for families who simply wish to visit.

The Maritime Academy of Toledo offers:
• High school diploma and post-secondary college courses;

• College prep and college credit for high school courses;

• Individual education plans for every student;

• STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Focus;

• Nautical/Maritime themes to enhance the curriculum;

• Afterschool sports and enrichment programs available until 6 p.m.;

• Afterschool test prep;

• Job placement for maritime and culinary career tech education majors;

• Swimming pool, fitness center and movie theater

The A.I.M. Program is open to students in grades five to 12, and class size is limited. For more information or to register for A.I.M., call 419-244-9999 or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
