The Duxbury Bay Maritime School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin. A drug and chemical free environment will be strictly maintained.
The goal of DBMS programs is to develop students’ individual strengths, to improve their skills, and to have fun while doing so. Programs require a high standard of commitment, effort, and personal conduct. Decent, self-respecting behavior and true sportsmanship are expected of everyone (students as well as parents) while participating in the school’s program, while on the school’s property, and while representing DBMS off campus. Failure to adhere to code of conduct will result in disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion without refund of program fees.
All classes must be paid IN FULL at the time of registration. The only exception is 3-week Junior Sailing classes where a non-refundable $100 deposit is required for each session at the time of registration. All 3-week Junior Sailing balances must be paid in full at least three weeks prior to the start of class.
If payment in full is not received by due date, DBMS reserves the right to use its waiting list to fill unpaid registrations and/or restrict participation until payment is complete.
Financial Aid is limited to One Class per Year per Student and Limited to Youththrough age 18.

This can be proved in 4 ways:
