What Are Independent Studies?
We form lasting relationships with our students and support their academic endeavors well after they leave our school year programs.
Independent studies provide opportunities to help students gain a high school credit, engage in research and pursue their interests in aquaculture and marine science.
Herring Gut educators work with a student and their teacher from their home school or university to design a semester program that meets academic credit requirements, strengthens skills in science and enhances our marine science or aquaculture education programs. Students who have not attended Herring Gut are welcome to contact us with a proposed course outline.
