Middle School Summer Preparation

We are so excited that you are joining us for the 2022-23 Middle School program. To make your transition into the 2022-2023 school year smooth, we have put all of the summer and start of school information in one space. 

If you have questions, please reach out to Mrs. Christin Minder, Head of Middle School at cminder@seacrest.org.


 

First Day of Middle School

Advisory & Schedules

Your child will be a part of our signature advisory program starting on their first day of school.

Just before school begins, you will receive an email with the name of your child's advisor. On the first day of school they will spend the entire morning with their advisory group. They will receive their schedule at this time, set up their binder, and learn the ins and outs of Middle School. This is a great time to get to know other students, and break the ice with team building games. In the afternoon, students go through their entire schedule, meeting each teacher and learning class expectations.

Our Advisory Program is designed to inspire students as they identity passions and discover themselves. Our teachers are the best at what they do- true educators who challenge, guide, and support our students on their academic journey. 

An advisory becomes like a family on campus. The role of the advisor is to be an advocate, coach, mentor and communication point person for his/her advisees. As a parent, your child's advisory is your point person. Their advisor will know your child both as an individual learner and person, and understand how they work as part of a team. This relationship will ensure that your child has a strong middle school experience finding out more about themself, and how they contribute to a community.


 

Foreign Language and Music Electives

Incoming 6th graders will take all three music selections as a rotation in order to expose them to different courses. They will take a partial year of both French and Spanish.

Incoming 7th and 8th grade students are able to choose their foreign language (Spanish or French) and music electives (Band, Chorus, or Performing Arts) prior to the start of the school year.
