CIMI at Toyon Bay provides a unique and exciting environment of programs that are the perfect way to enhance any student’s education. We are confident that your child will leave us more knowledgeable about the scientific world and more invested in assisting in the preservation of the natural world. We know that the spirit of Catalina will live on in your child and in their commitment to continuing to further their knowledge about our oceans and the inhabitants thereof.

By focusing on hands-on experiential science, and utilizing our state of the art labs and equipment, we strive to increase science literacy. Our expert instructors use the natural land and sea environments of beautiful Catalina Island to stimulate minds, and most importantly, to create excitement about science.

During our three or five day programs, students and teachers have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the diverse Southern California flora and fauna found in the ocean that surrounds Catalina Island.
