  • WCSD's Re-Opening Plan & Letter to Parents

    On July 8, 2020, Superintendent A. Russell Hughes released a Re-Opening Plan for the Walton County School District (WCSD). The plan, which was created through a Re-Opening Task Force, which began meeting in May, has been vetted by local experts, including the Florida Department of Health and Walton County Emergency Management. The plan is a lengthy, internal document written as directions for employees, but this FAQ sheet has been written specifically with parents and students in mind. As you read over this handout, please remember the COVID-19 situation is a fluid one. Because the re-opening of schools is a local decision, we will continue to watch and learn from several data points, including COVID-19 numbers and locations, CDC and state guidelines, and Florida’s Re-open Plan, so there may be revisions to the plan as the summer progresses.

  • Celebrating 25 Years of The Seaside Way

    Founded in 1996, The Seaside School, Inc. was one of the first and is now one of the oldest surviving public charter schools in the state of Florida. For the past 25 years, our ambitious staff, involved parents and supportive community have led the Seaside Schools, comprised of the Seaside Neighborhood School and Seacoast Collegiate High School, to be consistently recognized as leaders at both state and national achievement levels.

    Our continued growth and success of The Seaside Way reaffirms what our charter pioneers understood a quarter-century ago. Led by continual support, exploration, accountability, scholarship, independence, dreams and effort, students cultivate their diversity and begin to understand ways that they can make unique contributions to society.

    Admitted through a public lottery system and pursuant to the current policy of the Walton County School District, fifth through eighth grade students at the Seaside Neighborhood School explore a developmentally responsive education. The curriculum connects learning to the students’ community and their daily lives, enabling them to discover individual abilities, interests and learning styles. 

    Currently located on the campus of Northwest Florida State College, Seacoast Collegiate High School serves ninth through twelfth grades and offers students the ability to graduate high school with an Associate’s Degree.

    The Seaside Schools, funded by the state of Florida with supplement by the Seaside School Foundation, uphold a standard of excellence, where an emphasis on academic achievement is complemented by a concern for each learner’s personal growth and intellectual, aesthetic and psychological development.

    The 2020-2021 school year marks the Silver Anniversary milestone for the Seaside Schools, and we look forward to proudly sharing our ambition, mission and success with our community for many years to come!
