Tybee Island Maritime Academy (TIMA) creates a supportive, highly involved learning community, which promotes the highest academic achievement through a maritime, career focused, project-based curriculum centered on the natural and historical context of Tybee Island and the surrounding Savannah area.
TIMA guides students in the development of character and academic potential through a rigorous, content-rich, hands-on project-based curriculum. TIMA includes character-enrichment combined with a focus on skill development leading to successful career opportunities.
TIMA is founded on the belief that education is a means by which each individual has the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential. TIMA is the first and only elementary school in the state of Georgia with an educational program focused on career choices with emphasis on maritime education integrated with the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS).
