God has made it abundantly clear: we are moving Forward in Faith!
In 1971, God laid the foundation for Coastal Christian School. Many were skeptical about the building of a Christian school in the Pismo Beach area, but the Lord had a plan…
Reaching the Horizon
What seemed like the impossible just a few years ago is now a reality. We are all-systems-go for building an incredible multi-purpose center complete with:
When Will It be Completed?
If all goes as planned, construction of the new multi-purpose center will be completed by the fall of 2025!
What’s the Forward in Faith campaign donation goal?
While the “proverbial goalposts” keep changing due to the current economy roller-coaster, our goal is $16 million.
How far along are we?
$10 million has been committed to our capital campaign—Praise the Lord! We need your help to reach our goal. And if you donate now, your gift will be matched by a very generous donor.
We are waiting on just a couple more permits, and then we can break ground!
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.’”

Praise the Lord!
I want to thank everyone who gave of their time and/or resources to bless our efforts to build our multipurpose gymnasium and classroom center. One of the highlights for me was the worship led by 11th grade students, which helped keep the focus on the reason CCS exists.
Please keep praying for our permits to be approved and for the rest of the funds needed to complete this facility.
To God be the glory for the great things He has done!

A “THANK YOU” FROM OUR STUDENTS
We asked some of our students what they would say to those who pray for, serve, and donate to Coastal Christian School. This was their response…

Countdown – This Is Coastal Christian
The first video shared at the fundraiser
To kick off the fundraiser, we asked ourselves: “what if we made a ‘living’ countdown instead of the usual numbers-on-a-screen?” This was the result.
The second video shared at the fundraiser.
God’s story in the lives of students at CCS. Praise the Lord for His patience, faithfulness, and compassion. His boundless love for our students is powerfully evident every single day!
