    Williams-Mystic challenges the standard definition of learning. For example, we believe a chat with an alligator wrangler may be as vital to scholarship as a conversation with an invasive species expert. Through this open-ended approach—and the magnifying lens of maritime studies—our faculty and staff passionately help students discover and develop their awareness, ambitions, and potential. Ultimately, Williams-Mystic students broaden educational goals by taking in all the intricacies of their environment—guided by our dedicated teachers, mentors, and professionals.
