Seacrest Country Day School is absolutely fantastic! The school is a real community - of parents, teachers and students. All three work together to ensure the students are pushed to their academic limits and, simultaneously are developing into solid, well-rounded individuals with strong senses of who they. I say all the time that the teachers are my partners and it's really true at this school. I was worried about finding a strong academic school after we moved from one of the top school districts in Massachusetts. I found something better that just "great academics" down here and I could not be happier.

Seacrest is a school for change. They encourage growth in the community, leadership, and integrity while preparing students for college all at the same time! Teachers at Seacrest strive to tailor academics to the individual so that each student can get the extra push they need to work harder than they knew they could. There are lots of clubs to join ranging from growing in service to academically based clubs. The school is its very own community where upperclassmen talk to lowerclassmen, and vice versa, everyone is included and everyone learns what it means to be apart of something even bigger than themselves. The sports at Seacrest are a wonderful way to work on team building and create new relationships with other students you may not always hang out with, and they are great for the growth of the individual. Seacresters are from all over, every student practices making new lasting relationships with people throughout the school and it is amazing to watch it happen before your eyes.

Seacrest was the best high school I could ever have attended. The small atmosphere made it welcoming and personalized. Being seen as a student and not just a number made my experience at Seacrest the best it could have been. I've made so many great connections and still happily visit when I'm on break from college to revisit with my teachers.

Our experience at Seacrest has been amazing. After moving form a great school up north, I was worried about finding a school here in Florida. We felt so welcome from our very first day five years ago. It is a family! My children love going to school. The teachers are wonderful. They truly care about the students. I love all the afterschool activities. And the academics are strong. It is the right combination of everything! I am proud to be a part of the Seacrest community.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
