Message from the Head of School

Welcome to Seacrest Country Day School!  While I hope you enjoy learning about our community virtually, I encourage you to schedule a visit with us or attend one of our many wonderful events.

As I was introduced to Seacrest three years ago, I was impressed with the School’s mission:

Seacrest Country Day School fuels intellectual engagement, teaches ownership of the educational experience, cultivates quality of character, and inspires students to lead lives of significance.

I was even more impressed as I met members of the community, students, colleagues, parents/guardians, and alumni and experienced how this community delivers on its mission every day.  As a Seacrest parent, I am grateful that our own children will experience the incredible benefits of a Seacrest education and its community.

Seacrest Country Day School offers a challenging college preparatory program and we welcome students from the age of four in our prekindergarten program. Our Lower School (elementary grades preK through 5) provides an excellent foundation and helps students develop a real love of learning.  In our Middle School (grades 6-8) we help students discover their individual strengths and passions while preparing for Upper School.  Our Upper School (grades 9-12) offers an incredible variety of courses and a college counseling team second to none.  We have also recently launched our Baby Rays Early Learning Program at Seacrest Country Day School for babies of 6 weeks to 3 years. It is a place where learning through exploration, joy, creativity and play is encouraged and fueled. We welcome children ages six weeks through three years old.

I would like to share what I see and already love at Seacrest. It is rare for a school of Seacrest’s caliber also to possess so much potential. Long renowned for embracing the role of play, curiosity, creativity, educational excellence, love of learning, and compassionate participation in the world, Seacrest has taken bold new strides to ensure students are prepared to thrive in a dynamic and frequently challenging world.  Success in today's world requires mastery of the fundamental skills needed to find solutions to problems. Seacrest focuses on providing students with a Big Experience. The depth of our program at every level means students can dive in as deeply as their passion and excitement can take them, every day. They explore their interests, learn the value of failure, and the thrill of success. They take what they learn here on to college and move out into the wider world seeking to live a life of significance.

I encourage you to get to know Seacrest.  Please get in touch with us directly and I look forward to meeting you.

Sincerely,

Kevin Aspegren
