Can students get credit for outside activities and life experiences?
Absolutely. Our Special Interest Forms are designed to document life-learning experiences to earn additional credit. Students may receive credit for a wide range of life experiences including research, hobbies, tutorials, special interests, workshops, private classes (music, ballet, sports), religious studies, community service and more.

How many times can my child contact his/her teacher?
Our Academic Advisors serve as mentors/guides to your student. Your child may contact his/her Advisor five days a week from 8:00am to 5:00pm PST via email with any questions and concerns.

When will I be able to start if I enroll today?
Enrollment processing is completed within 5 business days. Please allow 10 business days after processing for your full program to arrive.

Can my child work at an accelerated pace and move on to the next grade?
We encourage all of our students to work at whatever pace is comfortable for them. On average, a student will spend 2 to 4 hours per day on their studies. The Recommended Daily Schedule included with your child's program ensures the student will complete the course work within 9 months. Every child has varying learning styles, so we encourage them to work at a pace that is comfortable for them. Their daily schedule may be modified as needed.

If a student has completed all of the required course work in his/her grade level, you may re-enroll into the next grade level without waiting for the enrollment period to expire. A new enrollment period will begin as soon as the re-enrollment has been completed with your enrollment advisor.

What if my child becomes sick and we need a leave of absence?
Just call one of our customer service representatives at (805) 267-4818 or email our Admissions Office through our contact page. The Advisor will put through a Change document informing both the school and teachers that your student will be taking a break from courses.

If I complete my course ahead of schedule and I did not pay in full, do I have to keep paying monthly?
Yes, the cost of the all-inclusive payment program remains the same.

If my child decided to go back to the public school system, will he/she be accepted? Will your credits transfer?
Yes, they will. Seascape Center is a legally accredited private school. Our registrar will send official transcripts and evaluations to your child's new school.

We live in another country. Can our children come to your school even though they are not U.S. citizens?
We have students of all ages living abroad and currently attending Seascape Educational Center. In addition, many international students have successfully graduated from Seascape's high school division, Malibu Cove High, and have been able to go on to the college or university of their choice in the United States. Please feel free to contact one of our Admissions Advisors, who will help you with such issues as transcripts and transferring credits to Seascape Center. Please note that as a distance learning program SeaScape Center operates a closed campus and thus does not issue student visas for study in the United States.

Do I have to know everything to be able to help my child?
Seascape Center's curriculum is designed to be easy to use for parents who are teaching their children, and can be a learning experience for the entire family. It is also designed to be more and more self-taught as your child progresses into high school. In cases where students need additional guidance that you cannot provide, you may contact your child's Academic Advisor for assistance.

How much does it cost?
All-inclusive enrollment includes all textbooks, materials, teacher services, enrollment fees, grading, progress reports, and shipping from our offices to you.
