Upper (Grades 5-8)

We know our learners and meet them where they are, academically and social-emotionally.


The upper school program challenges and supports student growth through a personalized approach to academic instruction and robust enrichment and extra-curriculars. Students develop effective communication, self-advocacy, and critical thinking skills through engaging lessons, discussions, and collaborative projects. Our upper school experience empowers students to take risks through athletic, enrichment, and leadership opportunities and to make a positive impact on the world around them.



Beginning in Seventh Grade, we work with families to help students find the right fit in high school. Students are encouraged to attend school fairs, open houses, and shadow days. We participate in the annual Mid Peninsula Middle & High School Fair to give families the opportunity to meet representatives from a variety of options.

After high school, Sea Crest alumni attend colleges and universities that further their unique interests and talents. Recent destinations have included Berkeley, Caltech, Cambridge, Colgate, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Harvey Mudd, MIT, NYU, Northwestern, Oberlin, Pitzer, Reed, Rice, Stanford, Tulane, and USC.
