Who We Are

Nonprofit Organization in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA

Cardiff Schools Education Association (SEA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization comprised of parent volunteers, teachers and school staff whose goal is to raise money for educational programs for OUR students at Cardiff and Ada Harris schools.


What We Do

Our efforts, in partnership with the Cardiff School District, pay for salaries and keep or ensure additional programs that improve the quality of our children’s education. The SEA helps fund salaries for class-size reduction and specialized programs such as:

What We Can Give

To enhance student learning, we invest in supplemental resources and the latest technology. Cardiff Sea funds iPads for every child, new computers for classrooms, and mini-grants for teachers. Aside from this, we provide every student with the opportunity to attend the highly regarded weeklong 6th-grade camp scholarship in Cuyamacas.

STEAM- which is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematicsas access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

Our school district relies on these supplemental funds each year from the SEA to help achieve our academic goals and enrich our children’s educational experience. To accomplish this, we depend on the strong financial commitment and dedication of families, friends, local community members and businesses.

A good elementary school education is the foundation for a lifetime of success and supporting the SEA in providing technology, music, science, garden, art and low student to teacher ratios is something all the wealth managers at Beta Wealth Group are proud of."
