“Imagine a school in which children would explore, experiment, create, and discover; where children would learn to respect and help each other; where minds would be stretched and strengthened; where information would be experienced, and practiced.” - Jane Kern (Seacrest Founder)

"Imagine the best possible learning environment for children" 

Imagine. That simple but profound word is what Seacrest was founded upon 38 years ago, and “imagine,” is what we ask of each of our students and your children every day. When we imagine, we give power to our creative inspiration and we make real what was once just a dream. Back in 2000, our school community imagined the most advanced technology center of any school in Florida, and at a time when that was unheard of, Seacrest built one that rivaled any learning institution in our state. What Seacrest imagined over twenty years ago prepared students for the technology-driven, interconnected world we live in today.

Our students, teachers, and families imagined adding athletic fields, gymnasiums, and programs, where every student is welcome to find their place to shine on a team. The results of that dream can be measured in state championships, and Seacrest graduates playing at the college level at more than twice the national average.

We imagined a high school where students would have the opportunities to sharpen their focus and explore interests and strengths through extracurricular activities, internships, in addition to their concentrated studies. That concept resulted in Seacrest graduates who are prepared, confident, inspired, and ready to attend the top-tier, four-year colleges and some of the nation's most exclusive universities.

"Imagine," a word that opened so many doors for thousands of students in our community.

With your support, just imagine what we can do next.

Imagine 100


A culture of giving is at the heart of a great educational institution.

Just as we ask our students to engage in their experience here at Seacrest, we also ask each member of our community to play an active role in delivering our mission. Because independent schools such as Seacrest operate without government funds, it is important to raise additional money each year, apart from tuition, to continue offering our students an exceptional learning environment. In addition to tuition, parents, alumni, grandparents, friends, community partners and outside constituents are asked to invest in the growth and enhancement of Seacrest through annual giving and special events.

We ask you to make annual giving to Seacrest's Annual Fund a top philanthropic priority each year. Gifts to the Annual Fund support Seacrest’s operating budget, ensuring our students continue to receive an educational experience that will prepare them for the future. To learn more about the Seacrest Annual Fund, why you should give, and the impact your gift makes, visit The Annual Fund page.

Making your gift to Seacrest is easy. We graciously accept:

  • Cash, check, or credit card donations
  • Wire Transfers
  • Matching Gifts
  • Appreciated Securities – This is a popular alternative way to give a cash gift because it avoids capital gains tax on securities held long-term and provides an income tax deduction equal to the fair-market value at the date of transfer. If you would like to use this option, please contact Heather Moore,

Your charitable and tax-deductible contribution to the Annual Fund supports faculty and staff salaries, professional development, programs, campus maintenance and improvements, tuition assistance and more. We are grateful for your support!

In addition to monetary gifts, our active parent body graciously gives their time to a number of activities and events on campus. Seacrest would not be the inclusive and exciting community it is without the participation of our families in the lives of their children and the life of our school. The information below will help introduce you to some of the inherent differences and the particular responsibilities of independent school parents.
