Children, parents, teachers and alumni like to know that they can rely on their school to be dependable and consistent. Members of our school community know they can rely on us to create an environment that is:
Safe but not a fortress Grounded in fundamentals but vibrant and experiential College preparatory but Life Long minded Nurturing but challenging Individually focused but dedicated to community development Character centered but non-sectarian
At Shorecrest we strive to provide choice, support, and balance in all that we do.
From the moment a parent, guardian or grandparent calls to inquire about the school, to when a students walks across the stage with a Shorecrest diploma, our faculty and staff reaches out to support the educational needs and ambitions of our students and their families.
At Shorecrest, we balance a progressive, liberal arts curriculum which focuses on math, science and technology as well as English, history, art, physical education and character development, with a pragmatic approach that ensures students have developed skills and knowledge which will increase opportunities for them as they explore their interests, university choices, and careers.
We take great pride in the accomplishments of the students and graduates of our school. Their contributions to our immediate community while they are at Shorecrest and their even more significant contributions to communities in our region, around the county and the world reflect the values our teachers, coachers and directors work to instill. We take joy in knowing that we are in a partnership with our student’s families. Together, we know we can transform the lives of our students.
This is a great time to be a student at Shorecrest. More than ever before our students have opportunities to discover and develop their abilities, their passions and their dreams. I invite you to visit our campus and observe why we believe our students can Be More from being a part of the Shorecrest Preparatory School educational experience.

Recently I had a businessman say to me, “I wouldn’t get out of bed in the morning if I didn’t think I would make at least $250,000 a year.” As much as I like the person, we clearly live on different planets and certainly are motivated by very different drivers. He is entitled to his belief but he certainly has a very limited view on what motivates people to get out of bed.
I am appreciative of the teachers and students who work to organize service opportunities and to build positive partnerships and relationships with local, national and global organizations. Our hope is that many of the service learning experiences will lead to lifetime interests and will benefit our partners as well as our students.
When sophomore Jordan J asked me to join him in shaving our heads as an act of solidarity with Olivia R, another 10th grader who is undergoing chemotherapy, I said, “For $1000 for Relay For Life.” His father, Marc, was standing by and blurted out, “Done.”
Sophomore Jordan J vowed to shave his head if he raised $10,000 for the American Cancer Society. In less than a month Jordan surpassed his fundraising goal! He’s challenged Mike Murphy to set a $2000 bounty on his hair as well. Both Jordan and Murphy will shave their heads at a Relay For Life fundraising lunch on the Shorecrest campus on Wednesday, March 4.
