Our students will grow with a healthy spirit, a clear intellect and a strong character so they may realize their unique contributions as the work for a noble and peaceful world.” We have two campuses nestled between redwood-forested mountains and the Monterey Bay in Northern California.
Our future science guide will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and will work collaboratively with a supportive group of dedicated Wavecrest guides overseen by our Wavecrest director.

The science guide will implement a study of the sciences guided by the Syllabus and the Plan of Work and Studies as described by Dr. Montessori. In addition, the guide will work with our students in our farm program one day/week at an organic farm where students engage in field studies, health and wellness, micro-economy, and creative expression.
