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.

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 the school.  After nearly 40 years of prayer, persistence, and overcoming hurdles, we broke ground with the building of our new facility in 2013. Construction of the phase one was completed in September 2014, and Coastal Christian School relocated to its current location on Oak Park Boulevard in Pismo Beach.  Moving forward, Coastal Christian School has plans to continue campus development which will include a multipurpose room-gymnasium, amphitheater, and expanded technology and fine arts programs.  

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.
— Jeremiah 29:11
