Seaside’s award-winning project-based learning curriculum for middle and high schools is built on the foundation of project management, leadership, and sustainability. Students, guided by educators and the curriculum, undertake a hands-on project that has real-world outcomes that directly benefits the school, district and/or community. 

Some examples of projects that students of the Green Scholars program have undertaken at their schools are:

  • building outside gardens growing food for the cafeteria, 

  • switching to trays rather than single use plates

  • banning single use plastics water bottles

  • instituting Meatless Mondays

  • adopting green cleaning products


The course drives towards the ultimate goal of making schools, districts, cities and towns more sustainable. Seaside Executive Director Eric Magers has trained more than 600 educators across the nation.

Several schools using Green Scholars have won the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Award, the highest honor for an educational facility to achieve. Hundreds of students and educators have garnered coveted awards and scholarships for acceptance to premier universities around the world.
