Welcome from the Head of School

Steven E. Caruso

Head of School

Seacrest Country Day School is a unique school. We are well-rounded, creative, innovative and appreciate the importance and strength of a true community. Each decision is made with our students at the forefront. We know our students well and claim each of them. As a result, they develop the confidence to challenge and express themselves with an understanding they are supported at each step of their educational journey.

I can tell you that Seacrest is unique. From our emphasis on educating the whole child and advocating the "best fit" for college applications to our devotion to community engagement, solid foundational skills, fine arts and athletics, and research, design, and innovation, we are very deliberate as we guide our students through their academic careers, preparing them for future learning and success. There is no other independent school in Southwest Florida and beyond that approaches education the whole person like Seacrest Country Day School.

I invite you to visit our campus.  See our students at work in the MacDonald Family STEAM center, pick vegetables in our garden, cheer on the Stingrays at an athletic game; or visit a classroom to see all that is happening inside our classrooms and in our outdoor learning spaces.

I look forward to meeting you.
