  • "I'm inspired by the mission of Seashore Academy and look forward to the day when we have our first Seashore graduates on our campus. One of the defining attributes of our school is having a diverse group of students who bring many different perspectives to the learning environment. With Seashore Academy's focus on a trilingual education, their students will be well prepared for the world we will all face in the 21st century."
