About Us

Fostering Lifelong Learners in a Faith-Filled Community

At Coastal Christian Academy, we consider the education and discipleship of our children to be a sacred and ultimate calling. Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, and fun environment where we can live out our core values. Our core values are:


We care for the heart of each child and family. We want to minister well to the heart of our kids so they will thrive and know they are loved (Deuteronomy 6:4-6).


We want our children’s character formed by the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness, and Self-Control (Galatians 5:22-23).


All knowledge flows from God. Proverbs 1:7 - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and knowledge.


We want our students to have a service mindset. Christ exemplifies the way to be great is through serving one another. We want to encourage a culture where our students serve in their classrooms and beyond (Mark 9:35). 

Our History

This school has had a strong community presence for nearly 30 years. We started with a small, sweet preschool offering classes for children 2-4. As time passed, the need for Christian education past the preschool age became very apparent.

In 2014, we added a Kindergarten class. From that point, we started adding a grade each year. In 2016, we were blessed with the construction of our current school building, where we could have brand new classrooms larger than our previous smaller preschool rooms. We added a large multi-purpose room to hold elementary lunches, assemblies, specials, etc.

We have seen several generations come through our school. We are so excited to see what God has in store for the future of Coastal Christian Academy!
