Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) - residential summer high school program

This month-long COURSE is one of a very small number of programs in the nation that offers a full year’s high school science credit for those students attending.  The Alabama State Department of Education has reviewed the course standards of the Discovery Hall Programs' Marine Science Course, and Alabama students can take the course for the third or fourth science elective required for graduation. Out-of-state schools are encouraged to provide course credit toward a standard or advanced high school diploma. We would love to have participants from Homewood!  Find more detailed information about this program, as well as our summer camps, here.
