Our Story

helping kids discover the potential within

The Maritime Academy is a public charter high school that focuses on marine-based learning and careers. Students can participate in activities like sailing, seamanship, and lifeguarding. The school is located on the waterfront in Panama City, Florida and has a dock for boat usage.


What We Offer


Community-based programs offer daily services to youth and families, with youth returning home each day if programming takes place outside of the home. We offer eight unique services with our community-based programs.

Charter Schools

AMIkids Charter Schools are public schools designed to offer students unique experiences centered around the ocean being the classroom. In addition to academic studies, students are exposed to multiple aspects of marine-focused careers as they develop as future leaders and responsible stewards of our environment.


How We Make A Difference

  • Maritime Academy provides multiple pathways to college and career.  Each student has the opportunity to participate in Leadership, Construction, and Aerospace courses in addition to traditional high school courses.
  • Students may obtain college credit for many courses via dual enrollment.
  • By combining experience, research, proven practice, and technology, Maritime Academy will provide equity for all students, ensuring every student’s successful transition from high school to college or career.


AMIkids Maritime Academy is led by their respective Principal and a volunteer board of community leaders, ensuring its positive impact on our communities.
