DeLand Volusia County



Sea Pines was founded in 1907 by Rev. Thomas
Bickford and is a college preparatory school (resident) for

girls. Miss Faith Bickford is principal. She inherited the

school from her.parents, whose ancestors received the land

from the Indians. She herself is the eleventh lineal descen-

dant of that early New Englander for whom the town of Brewster
is named. Evidences bf her modern outlook include the recent

.incorporation of the school under a board of trustees, to be

conducted without personal profit. The annual migration of

the school to Florida for the 'midwinter term, introduction of
project methods, rating by individual ability and achievement,

and other features consonant with the progressive educational

Protestant Christian girls are selected as

pupils. The enrollment in 1935-36 term was 25 pupils, with 10

adults enrolled during the winter term in DeLand. The school

offers college preparatory end cultural courses as well as

music and art. Special courses for adults and a lower school
for younger girls.

The school is located in fall and spring,on

a 100-acre tract on Cape Cod Bay (Brewster-on-Cape Cod, Mass.).
