Amazon Smile

You shop. Amazon gives. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to Sea Crest School whenever you shop on AmazonSmile. Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

New Leaf Gift Card

Purchase a New Leaf Gift Card to support Sea Crest, or reload an existing one with Cathy Greenwald at our front desk. The school receives up to 5% when you use this card at the store. You can purchase a card in increments of $50, $100, $250, or $500 by writing a check to Sea Crest for that amount.

Annual Fund

The Sea Crest Annual Fund bridges the gap between our tuition and the actual cost of a Sea Crest education. Every dollar raised directly benefits the school. The total we need to raise toward the gap is $2,400 per student. These funds are critical to the daily operation of the school and provide vital support for our operations including faculty and staff salaries, tuition assistance, technology upgrades, facilities improvements, curriculum enhancements and day-to-day operations. Please click here to make a gift.

3. Parent Education


Based on many parents’ input, we have selected topics and speakers, along with formats and times that appeal to many families. Aligned to the school’s work with Common Sense Media on digital citizenship, our parent education series is designed to help Sea Crest families tackle some of the most challenging issues in raising happy, healthy and successful children. If you have any questions, please contact Heidi Gilman Bennett, Volunteer Chair, Sea Crest Parent Education Series.

Upcoming Events

Social Media
Thursday, April 27th, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., Think Tank. Refreshments provided.

Sea Crest Parent Education brings you Social Media Trivia Night!
More than half of children have used a social network by age 10, yet only 20% of parents knew how to manage their children’s privacy settings. What are your kids getting into online? How much do you really know about the weird wide world of social media? Join us for the next Sea Crest Parent Education program where we’ll explore the topic of social media in a fun, engaging format (think: Jeopardy).
