About the Campaign

Charting our Future: A Campaign for Education & Innovation 

The Seaside School Board of Directors approved a motion during the Thursday, October 17th board meeting to no longer move forward with an elementary school expansion at our Seaside campus at this time.

Unfortunately, limited space in Seaside and recent legislation changes regarding safety/security requirements for charter schools, led to this outcome.

The Seaside Schools, Inc. plans to move forward with a renewed case for support.

The Campaign for Education & Innovation will be driven not only by short-term needs, but also by a plan of what the future will hold for our Schools.

We are truly Charting the Future for all of our children.

This project includes:

  • Building new classrooms and renovating our current building to accommodate an increased number of 5th through 8th grade students
  • Adding program space that will be utilized by both the schools and community in the Seaside neighborhood
  • Securing a permanent home for our Seacoast High School Students will continue to be a priority

Further expanding and improving our buildings allows us to provide a life-changing experience for students across the region.

We ask that you remain committed and patient as we chart our plans. We are intentionally taking the time to ensure the investment is sound, united and represents the Seaside Way.

Our future depends on all of you!


This public statement of your support of the campaign objectives will greatly bolster our effort.

Consider the many ways your gift will make an impact:

  • Provide additional educational opportunities for children in Walton County
  • Create an exceptional awareness for our current needs, including more space and technology
  • Challenge campaign leaders, community members and friends
  • Generate momentum for a successful campaign
  • Increase our ability to attract new donors and inspire others to support Seaside
