From Our Head of School

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”

— John Dewey

Our People

We believe that impassioned educators make learning relevant and exciting. The Sea Crest faculty employs teaching techniques and strategies that are at once traditional and innovative. Our program of on-going professional development and educational opportunities helps our teachers stay abreast of the latest trends and contributes to their longevity with the school. We take great pride in their achievements, skills, and dedicated service. Our educators are particularly attuned to the needs of the individual learner, engaging the whole child in the learning process and instilling in each one a sense of confidence and self-worth. They empower students to achieve their goals and give them a lifelong love of learning.

Program Overview

Lower School

  • The lower school program at Sea Crest is carefully designed to meet the evolving cognitive, social/emotional, and physical needs of our young students. The curriculum is rooted in the belief that children learn best by doing. Thus, experiential, hands-on learning opportunities abound.
Curriculum

Middle School

  • Through core classes in history, English, mathematics, science, Spanish, and physical education, students learn valuable study and time-management skills, develop empathy and cooperative learning tools, and participate in leadership, drama and music performances, and visual arts experiences.
Curriculum

Athletics

  • The Sea Crest Athletics department focuses on creating a positive, safe and fun environment for 5th-8th grade students where risk taking is encouraged and celebrated. Character development is emphasized along with competition. Sea Crest is a member of the Small School Independent League (SSIL)
