Welcome to Marine CSI!

Land Acknowledgement:

Marine CSI recognizes, respects, and honors the land on which we teach, once thriving with the Indigenous people of the Waccamaw-Siouan, Cape Fear, and Burghaw Indian tribes. We also recognize, respect, and honor those communities who make their home here today. We will continue to teach about these lands, its resources, and its wildlife to become better stewards for the future of the cape Fear region and its people.

Learn more about us by watching our short video below and by exploring our website!

We truly are an "empowering, engaging, exceptional learning experience" for all ages!
