TODAY AT DUNECREST AND IN THE FUTURE
With a mission “To provide a holistic American education that inspires students to discover their talents, pursue their passions, and make a positive impact on their communities and the world beyond” Dunecrest American School offers students unparalleled opportunities to undertake problem solving and exploration via hands-on activities.
Dunecrest American School will live the commitment to unite knowledge and good moral values. It seeks students who combine proven academic ability, intellectual curiosity, and tenacity with decency and good character. At Dunecrest American School, exacting inquiry and thoughtful discourse foster the life of the mind, instruction and activity promote fitness and health, and the daily interactions of faculty and students nurture integrity, empathy, and kindness. Because learning and growth at Dunecrest American School arise from each individual's engagement with others, the richness of education here requires diversity in all its dimensions; students and faculty value the differences they bring to the community they share.
The challenges that students meet at Dunecrest American School and the support they receive have a common purpose: to stimulate their development as individuals and as members of society. Dunecrest American School seeks to graduate young people whose creativity and independence of thought sustain their continuing inquiry and reflection, whose interest in others and the world around them surpasses their self-concern, and whose passion for learning pushes them beyond what they already know.
At Dunecrest American School we believe in the foundational importance of scholarship, the value of dialogue, and the need for academically curious young people to belong to a kind, creative, diverse, and joyful community. We challenge our students to engage deeply in learning, appreciate one another, and grow into adults who are intellectually adventurous, ethically sure-footed, and generous of heart and spirit.
Dunecrest American School was founded in 2018. We will continue to write our history with every new day.
