Welcome to Sea Crest!
Imagine a school where Monday mornings are just as much fun for children as are the weekends. Sea Crest School is an institution where pupils excitedly await the arrival of each school day. The enriching curriculum integrates arts into core academics and empowers children to engage with each other, their teachers and members of the local community.
Founded in 1996, Sea Crest is an Independent, K–8 school that is an integral part of the scenic and welcoming San Mateo county coastside community, just 20 minutes from both Silicon Valley and San Francisco. The school serves pupils from Pacifica to Pescadero, including the charming historic town of Half Moon Bay.
Sea Crest is a place where the childhood traits of curiosity, play and enquiry combine to foster a joyful educational experience, where academic excellence and character-building are equally and greatly valued. Pupils attending our school benefit from the hallmarks of an institution that prides itself on small class sizes allowing each child’s individual needs, academic and social, to be addressed. A solid foundation is built through Socratic debate, hands-on activities, public speaking, experiential trips, daily physical education and the use of modern computer technology. Our creative faculty and staff challenge our pupils to be critical thinkers.
At Sea Crest, we Excite. Enrich. Empower!
Welcome! We invite you to enter and explore.
