Wednesdays 9:30-11:00 AM

There’s still snow on the ground now, but we’re hoping for blue skies and warmer temperatures when we start up our spring session on March 23rd! Join us for a fun, hands-on class with a new topic each week. Classes will meet at various locations around town including, DBMS, Duxbury Beach, Standish Shore, and Shipyard Beach.

If school is off for the day due to a holiday or professional development day, but you still have work, send your child to DBMS for a day of fun! Van rides to different ecosystems, scavenger hunts on the beach, crafts, and experiments in the Marine Science lab are just a few examples of some of the awesome things they will do during their day off!



Grades K-2

Enrich your child’s homeschool experience with two hours on the bay at DBMS! Our lessons adhere to the next generation’s science standards, and we cover a new topic each week. Each class is a combination of a lesson and a hands-on activity. We use a 15-passenger van to take field trips to local ecosystems in Duxbury, allowing us to cover a broader array of topics and get out of the classroom!



Wednesdays 3:45-5:15 PM
Like the previous sessions, we will be picking students up from Chandler at 3:25 PM in the DBMS van and then heading back to DBMS for an exciting adventure! The program will run from March 30th-June 1st. We will not meet on April 20th due to April Break. As the weather warms, we will be taking our lessons outside of the classroom and out onto the Bay! Each class will include a lesson and a hands-on activity. We will use our 15-passenger van and Carolina Skiff to travel around Duxbury!


Thursdays 2:00-4:00 PM

Students will be picked up from Alden at 2:00 PM in the DBMS van before returning to campus until 4:00 PM! As the weather warms, we will head out of the classroom and back on the Bay! Weather permitting, we will use our Carolina Skiff and 15-passenger van to take local field trips to expand the array of topics we can cover! On April 7th and May 26th, when the students have a half-day, we will pick them up from Alden at 10:30 AM and offer an extended program at DBMS.
