About Our School: Why Coast?
Welcome to Coast Christian School
I am so glad you are taking a look at our School, whether it is because you are considering choosing our school for your family or whether you are just looking out of curiosity, I am glad you are here. We are all very proud of our school. I believe we have a fun, safe and loving school community within which I regularly see new students welcomed and accepted. We enjoy learning new things and discovering each child’s creativity. I encourage you to take a look at this website and see the opportunities that are available for all children to experience at Coast Christian School. We love having visitors to our school, so please feel free to come and visit us so that you can see and experience our school for yourself.
What do we value?
We believe that everything comes from and exists for God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit. We teach and live out of our values:
GRACE – treating others with kindness, forgiveness and respect.
GROWTH – showing growth in our learning, strength and courage.
GRATITUDE – being grateful, happy and satisfied.
GENUINENESS – being truthful, real and humble.
GENEROSITY – by giving, sharing and helping.
What is a Foundation for Life?
In Matthew 7:24-27 we read Jesus’ words: “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock”. We desire that all of our students are given an understanding and opportunity to develop a personal relationship with God. We teach the truth of the Bible and encourage one another to live a life that is lined up to God’s Word (The Bible). We believe that the foundation of your Christian faith will set up the attitude and theme of your whole life. It is for this reason that we want our children to enter High School with foundation for life – that is a clear understanding of who they are, why they are here and of how to live their life in accordance with God and His purpose for them. We want them to have a solid Foundation For Life.
Why do we want to create an environment of discovery where God, people and purpose connect?
We want our school to be a creative and stimulating environment for our students. We want each young person to discover God and to celebrate His creativity. We value people as a part of God’s creation and we believe that we are all created in God’s image and, therefore, are all worthy of respect. We believe God designs each of us with a purpose in mind and we desire to develop this understanding in our students. In Ephesians 2:10 in The Message translation of the Bible we read that God “creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join Him in the work He does, the good work He has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing”.
