A Brief Look at M.A.S.T.
M.A.S.T. is a co-ed four-year high school, grades 9-12. It is one of five career academies administered by the Monmouth County Vocational School District. The Marine Academy is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges and offers small classes with close personal attention. In 1998, the Marine Academy was designated a Blue Ribbon School as well as a New American High School by the United States Department of Education; these are just two of the many honors and awards the innovative program has received throughout its years. The Marine Academy was founded in 1981 as a part-time program which has since grown to become a full-time diploma-granting program. The school's curriculum focuses on marine sciences and marine technology/engineering.The M.A.S.T. program requires each student to participate in the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) in lieu of Physical Education.
M.A.S.T. is located in the Fort Hancock Historic Area at the tip of Sandy Hook, New Jersey. The school campus is located adjacent to the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, the oldest working lighthouse in the country, in thirteen newly renovated buildings, within walking distance of several beaches. Facilities include a Marine Biology Laboratory, an Oceanography Laboratory, a C.A.D. Laboratory, a Multi-Media Laboratory, a Marine Technology Workshop, a Media Center containing a Computer Classroom, a Naval Science Building, as well as Chemistry and Physics Laboratories and classrooms for mathematics, history and social science, English, and world languages.

M.A.S.T. students are enrolled in college preparatory courses for four years. All students take three years of expanded laboratory science and three years of marine technology/ engineering -- courses that cover the basic components of those subjects while integrating the specific marine concepts. Lecture, laboratory experiences and vessel activities are incorporated into each marine science and technology course. Each student also takes college preparatory mathematics courses all four years (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus or Calculus). Four-year programs are also required in English, Social Studies (World History, United States History I, II, and Sociology / Economics) and Naval Science. A four-year foreign language program is offered in Spanish, French and Latin. Health Education is also offered to fulfill the Health/PE requirement.
The "Blue Sea" is a 65-foot research vessel owned and operated by the Marine Academy and berthed at the U.S. Coast Guard Station, Sandy Hook. The vessel is used in all facets of the program.
