iLEARN with Creativity and Joy
We believe that within each student is a source of unlimited potential and opportunity. Leadership, ethics and character, creativity and joy- the guideposts of our school culture - are woven through the curriculum of a Seacrest education.
Individual recognition of each student is The Seacrest Difference. Our students are known, valued, and respected for who they are; their unique differences are honored and celebrated.
Leadership permeates The Seacrest Difference. It is our belief that every child must be a leader. Each student is provided the opportunity to develop leadership skills in and out of the classroom, not only to the benefit of Seacrest, but also to the good of the greater community.
Ethics and character are the foundation of The Seacrest Difference. Each day our students are challenged to consider, discuss, and practice making right choices. Our graduates enter their collegiate years with the confidence and strong personal character that results from years of guided decision making.
Academics - the traditional measure of excellence, is but one of the outstanding outcomes of The Seacrest Difference. The 3-Rs - rigor, relevance and relationships - allow our students to meet academic challenges, understand the application of their learning, and perceive interdisciplinary relationships while taking intellectual risks. Our passionate faculty provides students with the self-assurance to trust themselves, test their capabilities, and pursue their most arduous aspirations.
Responsibility for oneself, for the team, for the community, and indeed, for the world, is The Seacrest Difference. We expect students and faculty alike to take personal responsibility for their decisions and to understand the impact and consequences of every choice.
Nourishment - the feeding of the body, mind, and spirit-is essential and unique to The Seacrest Difference. Seacrest is a supportive environment where students gain an understanding of whom they are now and who they hope to be in the future. The Seacrest community is one in which students are supported, guided, and fed by a shared belief in their unlimited potential. Our students understand that learning begins in childhood and continues throughout their lifetime.
Creativity and Joy are the main ingredients of The Seacrest Difference. Validated by brain-based research, the guiding principles of Creativity and Joy empower the tenets of "iLEARN." Together, they create a difference for human potential that must be witnessed first-hand at our school to be truly appreciated.
I learn with creativity and joy is a mantra for achievement as young adults reach a tipping point where they take personal responsibility for their unlimited potentials. They are inspired to become Lifelong Learners. The result? Seacrest graduates transform the words "be the best that you can be" from cliché hope to concrete reality.
