The focus of the Marine (Science) Oceanographic Academy (MOA-Prep) magnet program at Forest Grove Middle School is to emphasize marine education and its application to the real world through hands-on learning and field experiences.  The program exposes students to environmental issues and fosters marine stewardship.  It is our goal that our students become proactive in their community to preserve and protect their local habitats.  MOA-Prep students are exposed to a wealth of marine-related activities and educational opportunities.
