New England Science & Sailing Foundation (NESS) offers a unique education model that empowers students with leadership, teamwork, confidence, and problem-solving skills to ensure academic success. NESS is the first, and only, program of its kind to be accredited by New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Our STEM-based curriculum includes using marine science, sailing, power boating, and adventure sports as learning platforms. Our goal is to advance academic opportunities for K-12 students of all backgrounds in both urban and suburban markets. We hope you will play a role in helping us continue this important educational mission—in person, online, or on the water!
