A word from our Head of School, Dr. Piccolo:

“I have adopted Psalm 37:4 as our theme for this year. In this verse, David shares, “Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires.” It is important to note that this does not mean that everything we ask for will be received! This verse reminds us of the importance of walking beside the Lord and understanding that even in times of loneliness, He is there to comfort us. This is the message that God has placed on my heart from His Word. My hope and prayer for this school year is that when times get tough and our patience begins to be tested, we can focus on all the good our Lord has promised us.”

We are SO excited to showcase our student (and former student) art! Stop by the front office to get your own copy of the first annual CCPS student art journal, Don’t Read This!

Also pictured: our students’ production of the murder mystery Murder at Rundown Abbey, elementary and kindergarten projects, and the annual Spanish class trip to the Spanish ballet!

Looking for something different for your student?

Coastal has a lot to offer!

We’d love for you to visit! You’ll find small classes, rigorous academics, missions focus, SCISA 1-A sports, and committed, Christian teachers.

One of the primary distinctions of our school is emphasis on missions and service opportunities. We strive to develop servant leaders who will impact their communities for Christ.

Throughout the year, students have opportunities to serve all over the lowcountry (Toys for Tots, Angel Tree, Humane Society, Franke at Seaside, Mount Pleasant Manor, Lowcountry Food Bank, First Baptist Church, CCPS) and even beyond (Chester, SC, and opportunities for mission trips through FBC to Guatamala and India).

We use RenWeb as our hub of communications for grades, reminders, enrollment, homework, and more.


Here at Coastal Christian Preparatory School, our mission is to assist parents in raising children to their God-given potential emotionally, spiritually, academically and physically.  This balanced approach gives students a foundation for lifelong success.

While these are good beginning steps, we invite you to come to Coastal Christian and experience the nurturing environment, high academic standards, athletic opportunities, and spiritual growth. If you would like to set up a tour, we would love to show you around our campus. Coastal Christian Preparatory School is located at 681 McCants Drive in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant, just minutes from downtown Charleston.
