Proudly serving our shared Half Moon Bay and Coastside community since 1996.
Sea Crest School’s 40 employees contribute approximately $2,400,000 in local revenue and income taxes to Half Moon Bay and the Coastside. The School annually purchases more than $100,000 in goods and services from many local businesses.
We estimate that students, parents, alumni, and visitors to campus spend more than $200,000 annually at Coastside businesses.
Our school provides more than $500,000 in financial assistance to students to enable them to attend Sea Crest School.
Sea Crest contributes every year to the needs of the community through our student, faculty, and school financial and volunteer support of numerous organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club, Coastside Hope, Half Moon Bay Little League, Half Moon Bay High School, and the Blood Centers of the Pacific.
Student-driven and Sea Crest community-supported fundraisers have raised approximately $20,000 each year for local organizations and have conducted numerous clothing, food, and other collections.
Students routinely conduct service projects – from trash clean-up and stewardship of Poplar Beach, to raising funds and supplies for local families in need.
Eighth Grade students participate in a yearlong service learning project on hunger and homeless during which they provide support to Coastside Hope, GLIDE Memorial, and the San Francisco Food Bank.
Sea Crest supports the intellectual, cultural, and recreational programs sponsored by Half Moon Bay and Coastside organizations by providing programming and renting our athletics and meeting facilities. Organizations include San Mateo County Harbor District, Iglesia del Mar, CYO, AAU, Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Club, Girl Scouts, and Half Moon Bay High School.
Students and faculty participate in a number of Half Moon Bay’s cultural, service-related, and community building activities each year, and we offer an array of musical performances that are free and open to the public.
Sea Crest School employees and parents serve as board members and are involved with many Half Moon Bay organizations, including sheriff and fire departments, Rotary Club, Coastside Hope, Boys and Girls Club, Half Moon Bay Library, and the Half Moon Bay City Council.
