Our School

Cal Coast Academy is an independent, co-educational, non-sectarian, college preparatory private school for students in grades sixth through twelfth. As a college preparatory school, we believe that certain skills, knowledge, and the ability to reason are necessary to meet the demands of a college education as well as to truly benefit from it. 

Cal Coast Academy provides a supportive, yet challenging environment, in which students can learn and succeed. We offer a full program of basic education and related services including classes dedicated to students with learning exceptionalities. We are a bridge from disability to ability for special needs students and enable all students to reach their full academic potential. Our intimate class size of 6 students allows teachers and students to more easily achieve academic and personal interaction as they explore concepts in a more collegial atmosphere. A 6 to 1 student-teacher ratio, strong academics & community service, set the stage for Cal Coast Academy's students to explore a wide range of opportunities, allowing them to learn skills and develop their talents as they learn more about themselves and how to make their way in an increasingly complex society.

Our school's Cal Coast Cares (C3) community service program reflects our belief that knowledge combined with humanitarianism better enables students to function as caring, effective adults in today's world. Cal Coast Academy's students in all seven grade levels complete a yearly community service requirement.


Cal Coast Academy is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), is certified by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), has a chapter through the National Honor Society (NHS), and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS)

Cal Coast Academy is also a recognized member of The College Board and all of our college preparatory courses have been approved by the University of California (UC) as well as The College Board's AP Course Audit.
