Aoa Shore Protection Project is located on the northeast coast of the island of Tutuila, American Samoa. The project was authorized in July 1975 under Section 103a of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1962, as amended. The project was completed in October 1977 at a cost of $252,352 (Federal: $126,176; non-Federal: $126,176).

The project consists of a 710-foot-long revetment with a crest elevation of 12 feet Mean Low Water and a side slope of 1 vertical to 2 horizontal. The purpose of the project is to protect the Aoa School from damage and erosion from storm waves. The local sponsor is the American Samoa Government.
