  • Investing in Progressive Education

    by Laina Bennett, Director of Annual Giving
    With Grandparents & Special Friends Day and St. Pete STEAMfest in our rearview mirrors, we can reflect on the success both of these programs have in bringing our ever-growing community together. Our Grandparents and Special Friends, along with families outside of the Shorecrest community had the unique opportunity to experience the inclusive, innovative and transformational education available to our students firsthand. Project- and inquiry-based learning, hands-on activities centered on technology, and a commitment to social responsibility are all hallmarks of a Shorecrest education.
