ABOUT US

OUR VISION

To be the top school choice of Central Coast families where biblical education is instilled and Christian leaders are raised.

Our Mission

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.

The dream has become a reality

In 1977, the Lord moved in the heart of a generous saint, Reuben Kvidt, to donate 27 acres of beautiful Pismo Beach land with the express desire to build a thriving Christian school. In 2024, that dream is a reality, and it’s Time to Build!
