Our vision is to be the top school choice of Central Coast families where biblical education is instilled and Christian leaders are raised.
Our mission is to partner with parents in preparing students to serve God in all of life by providing excellence in the spiritual, academic, social, and physical aspects of education.
Located in our brand-new facility nestled in the beautiful hills of Pismo Beach, California, Coastal Christian School has been serving the Christian community for more than 40 years. Our TK-12 education is rooted in the eternal Word of God, and the Christian worldview is reflected in every activity at our school. Our highly experienced faculty, staff, administration, and board are committed to faith in Jesus Christ, ensuring that our children are taught by people who are committed to the Lord and Biblical education.
Our teachers and classrooms provide a loving, nurturing, and challenging environment where each student is accepted and valued as a child of God. We partner with parents by providing quality, academic education designed to develop students who will follow Christ, embrace Biblical truth, and live lives that glorify God. Our goal as a school is to infuse Christ into everything we do. Our weekly chapel services include outdoor, student-led music and worship overlooking the beautiful knolls of God’s creation here on the Central Coast.
We focus on the development of the “whole child” in regards to education and each student’s place in the family of God. Each student’s daily life includes everything from technology classes to competitive sports programs to fine arts and music. We instill a humble, service mentality by providing opportunities for students and staff to serve in our local community as well as across the globe with programs that help children in need. We firmly believes that the total learning experience must be rooted not just in rigorous academics, but also in the development of technological skills and analytical thinking. Students learn a pattern for life built on the certainty of God’s Word and the confidence that they can do all things though Christ who gives them strength. (Phil 4:13)
“I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt. I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth.”
– Martin Luther –
A Bit of CCS History...
Coastal Christian School was founded in 1971 as the Central Coast Christian Academy by parents who desired a Christian education for their children. The school opened with an enrollment of 39 students in grades K-6. In January, 1972, grades 7 and 8 were added, and a high school program was added in 1978. The name of the school was eventually changed to Coastal Christian School in 1986 to reflect its multi-church sponsorship.
CCS opens its doors in 1971
It became obvious early on that God had a grand vision for our school when, in 1977, a local developer named Reuben Kvidt donated roughly 27 acres of prime Pismo Beach land to CCS. After nearly 40 years of prayer, persistence, and overcoming hurdles, we broke ground with the building of our new facility in 2013. Construction of this first phase was completed in September 2014, and Coastal Christian School relocated to its current location on Oak Park Boulevard in Pismo Beach.
Hopeful for the new campus
Forward in Faith
Moving forward in faith, we are beyond excited about the next phase of what we believe is God’s plan for CCS: a multipurpose gymnasium, amphitheater, expanded technology program, and fine arts program.
“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”

Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His bodily return in power and glory.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto eternal life, and they that are lost unto everlasting damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that marriage has been instituted by God. Marriage is defined as the exclusive covenantal union of a man and a woman in which such union is a lifetime commitment. A civil government’s sanction of a union will be recognized as a legitimate marriage only to the extent that it is consistent with the definition of marriage found in the Bible.
We believe that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Hence, sexual relations outside of marriage are incompatible with the biblical witness.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells the Christian, empowering him to live a godly life.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
– Hebrews 11:6 –
