The Sea Cliff public school system began in 1883 with a four-room, brick, grade school building on Franklin Avenue. In 1912, the old building was torn down, and the present building was erected on Carpenter Avenue. This building, which underwent a large renovation in 2002, now houses the Sea Cliff Elementary School (grades k-5), which is part of North Shore School District.
The North Shore School System is one of the main attractions for young families moving to Sea Cliff. With its small class size and high percentage of students going on to college, North Shore Schools are well respected on Long Island.

Sea Cliff has extensive services for our Senior Citizen population. In fact we strive to be a model community supporting independent living and aging in place. To this end the Village has a Plan that outlines our focus, defines our goals and drives our services. We provide support in the following areas: housing, health and wellness, transportation, information and referrals, safety, and recreation and life-long learning.

Karen Montagnese, LMSW Senior Outreach Worker
Senior Outreach serves as an information portal and referral base. Seniors and/or their family members have called and visited for a whole host of issues. Together we have addressed the maze of Social Security and Medicare, the complexities of discharge planning and the many challenges of independent living. The Office also can inform low income seniors of entitlement opportunities such as Medicaid, SNAP (food stamps), HEAP and Medicare Extra Help. Every fall there is a special information session regarding Medicare Open Enrollment provided by the Health Insurance Information and Counseling Program (HIICAP). The office also informs seniors of the wide variety of senior programs offered by the Village, its surrounding communities and the County. Referrals are often made to appropriate agencies that may provide specialized services.
