Our campus is located on a peninsula known as 'Cape Eleuthera,' separated by six miles of mangrove creeks and bush from our neighbors in Deep Creek (or 'Freetown' as it is named on Google Maps). Situated adjacent to an abandoned 100-acre+ golf course on a man-made, miniature peninsula of our own, the research community is intimately intertwined with that of the The Island School, a semester and summer program for high school sophomores and juniors from around the world. The two campuses are separated by a short bridge over a reclaimed mangrove swamp.
Our programs employ professionals from around the world and from settlements close-by on Eleuthera. A small child-care center on campus, the Early Learning Center (ELC), teaches little-ones between 2 and 7 years old. Our Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) leads the charge in innovating towards more sustainable systems on campus, creating a model for other communities in this island nation. Research scientists, interns and the Educational Programs team often engage with seventh- through ninth-graders at our affiliated Deep Creek Middle School (DCMS) through outreach programs in town.
All programs are supported by the Cape Eleuthera Foundation (CEF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation providing charitable funding support for education, scientific research, community leadership, and sustainable technologies.
