Annual Report 2015

Annual ReportOur school is much more than a building. It’s more than a report card, an agenda, or a single lesson plan. It’s a Lower School class and a Middle School chorus, a partnership of parents and a team of faculty and staff. We are a community of people committed to the education of nearly 300 students spanning nine grades. Together, we are Sea Crest School.

As we move forward into 2016, we are grateful for the foundation built over the past two decades. We are thankful for a strong spirit of innovation and for a warm tradition of service. Most of all, we are inspired by our students, who engage curiosity, express creativity, act with compassion, and lead with courage.

Please click here to view our Annual Report, which celebrates your contributions. Printed copies of this calendar are available at the front desk.

This year, and every year, we celebrate our community.

Happy New Year!
