Coastal Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of it’s educational policies, athletics, or school-administered programs. Children of any race, color, or national origin are entitled to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities available to all students.
Students with special needs will be reasonably accommodated to the limit of CCS resources in regular grade-level classes. If such accommodations are not successful in meeting the student’s needs, other options will be sought with the parents including seeking an appropriate educational setting at a public school.
We are equally committed to Christian life, stellar academics, and the development of the whole child and adolescent. Sometimes parents feel when they are choosing a private school that some component of what they desire for their child must be compromised. Coastal Christian School not only offers a distinctly Christian education and environment, but also a college-prep education with distinguished curriculum which results in superior academics. Coastal Christian’s program also includes electives, technology, and sports programs. We encourage you to come tour our campus and discuss Coastal Christian School as an option for your family.
Upon its founding in 1971, Coastal Christian was associated with Grace Bible Church in Arroyo Grande. In the late 80’s however, CCS branched out on its own and has been a non-denominational Christian School ever since. One of the things we love about the Central Coast is the unity among churches of many different Christian denominations, and we, too, encourage unity in the body of Christ.
We do not present a secular education with a “dash” of morality or religion. Everything we do and teach is centered on the Truth—the Word of God. As such, Jesus Christ is the foundation (or "center") on which all our efforts are built.

Generally, no. However, after-school day-care and half the cost of kindergarten (also considered day-care) may be tax-deductible. Donations to a scholarship fund are tax-deductible, but payments for your student are not. To be sure, please consult your tax preparer.
We offer these enrichment classes in all grades. One of the things that make Coastal Christian such an amazing and well-rounded school choice is that we offer art, music, physical education, Spanish and technology classes each week for all K-6 students. Students in grades 7th – 12th are able to choose these classes and others, such as web design, art, and more as elective classes.
Students in grades K-6 have recess every day. P.E. classes are designed to be teacher-directed with specific skills presented for mastery. Recess is designed to be a time of unstructured physical activity, socialization, and play. The literature examining the global benefits of recess for a child’s cognitive, emotional, physical, and social well-being is in agreement about the enormous benefit of this time of physical, social, and basic playtime. Coastal Christian School highly values the great importance of this for our children.
The majority of our graduates attend a four-year university immediately following graduation. Our college-prep high school environment consistently produces students who have outstanding GPAs, high test scores, and have attended numerous universities such as: Biola, Northwestern, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Point Loma, Grand Canyon and more. Many of our students are also awarded scholarships to various colleges. While attending CCS, our high school students are given the opportunity to work on college credits, if desired, giving them an academic advantage upon entering college.
