With its close proximity (2 min drive) to I-80,  Crestmont School and Crestmont Summer Camp serve children from many  communities. This is because our convenient location between Hercules, Pinole, San Pablo, Richmond, El Cerrito, Albany, Kensington and Berkeley allows parents to quickly drop off their child without adding significant commute time.

Many Crestmont School and Crestmont Summer Camp kids live in El Cerrito, California.  Therefore Crestmont encourages all its students to get to know this diverse and welcoming community.
