What does Coastal Christian have to offer your child?
7:1 STUDENT TO TEACHER RATIO
At Coastal we offer small class sizes to support the individual student in a nurturing environment.
ENHANCED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
We offer individual academic goals and challenge students inside and outside of the classroom through STEM, Fine Arts, Media and other SCISA Activities.
We offer several sports for boys and girls through the SCISA Athletics program, the City of Charleston and other avenues. We understand the importance of physical education, movement and wellness.
We believe in teaching the whole child and challenging each student to reach their God-given potential. We have weekly chapel and Bible classes, and daily devotion and prayer time in the classroom.

Advantages of a Small School Environment:
At Coastal Christian, we view our small size as an excellent advantage for our students.
OUR STUDENTS THRIVE.
As a small school, Coastal uses innovative instructional strategies associated with higher student performance to help students succeed beyond their limitations. Individualized instruction, an integrated curriculum, multi-age grouping, small-group skills sessions, cooperative learning, and daily performance reviews are just a few of the powerful strategies we use at Coastal Christian to help our students achieve their absolute best. With such a personalized learning experience, it is no wonder that students at Coastal thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
WE SET HIGH CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS.
Coastal students are held to high classroom expectations in this small school setting. Our teachers expect excellent performance from their students because they know them so well and are personally invested in their success. Because our students work so hard in the classroom and have strong teacher oversight throughout the school day, our students have less daily homework outside of the classroom than other schools. We recognize the value of time with family and activities outside of school in developing the whole child, and we use classroom time to its maximum potential to support that development.
OUR SCHOOL EXPERIENCE IS PERSONAL.
At Coastal, students take ownership in their personal learning and in their entire school experience. Our students recognize that they are a valued part of the school community. Their learning activities are more individualized and relevant to their learning level and learning style, taking into account personal backgrounds and past experiences outside of school. Student attitudes toward school in general and toward particular school subjects tend to be more positive in small schools, and we certainly find this to be true at Coastal.
YOU ARE A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER.
At Coastal Christian, each student belongs to an even bigger family. Each child is known by peers and teachers throughout the school, creating strong, positive relationships across grade levels and across ages. These relationships help develop confidence and positive self-esteem that students carry with them beyond the school setting and past these formative years.
LEARNING IS MORE THAN SCHOOL WORK.
Students in small schools have the opportunity to develop stronger, closer relationships between other students, teachers, and administrators. In small schools, all students have the opportunity to know one another. The older students accept leadership roles and mentor younger students. Younger students look up to older students as positive role models. The adults know and care about each student to a greater degree than is possible in large schools. At Coastal Christian, you are certainly more than a student; you are a part of a close and caring family.
