More About Sea Crest School

Located in the heart of downtown Half Moon Bay, Sea Crest School offers a robust Junior Kindergarten through 8th-grade student experience that includes not only core academics but daily enrichments in theater arts, music, Spanish, iLab & Makers, visual arts, Marine Science, and physical education.

Students in the Upper School, which begins in the 5th grade at Sea Crest, also have the opportunity to explore band, athletics (over 16 different options), student leadership, national & international travel and a senior capstone project. All of our students participate in outdoor education, service learning projects, and environmental stewardship. Through Character Strong, our evidence-based SEL program, social-emotional development is woven into all aspects of academic learning and community experiences.

Our Primary Division (Jk – 1st Grade)

The Primary School program embraces a child’s natural sense of wonder to spark the joy and love of learning. Students begin to build a strong foundation for literacy, number sense, and social-emotional development. Our hands-on, experiential approach EXCITES students to explore, discover, learn, and grow.

Our Secondary Division (2nd-4th Grade)

The Secondary School program develops strong academic skills and lifelong learning through a project-based, workshop model of instruction. Students grow in self-awareness and independence while learning to be supportive classmates, caring friends and active members of the community. Our dynamic curriculum ENRICHES students by offering the chance to discover new interests and explore cross-curricular opportunities for creative self-expression.

Our Upper Division (5th-8th Grade)

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.
