LEARN ON LOCATION:
Trek, Traverse & Travel with Cal Coast! Each year the Cal Coast Academy stakeholders select a new destination for our student body to explore. While abroad, our travelers witness historical sites and geography, are stimulated by unique cultures, experience different culinary traditions and are inspired by local residents. Each extraordinary location we visit instills global awareness as well as an interconnectedness of countries and cultures within our students. Cal Coast Academy gives course credit to our student travelers.
According to a recent study conducted by the Student Youth Travel Association, over 88% of students who traveled abroad before the age of 18 earned a college degree, and more than a quarter went on to receive post graduate degrees.
Surf - Cal Coast Academy's Surf Club provides an opportunity for all Cal Coast Academy students to gather and socialize in an atmosphere in which they excel outside of the school classroom. Our Surf Club is open to all students with a desire to surf with the Cal Coast Academy Surf Team.
Michael Carley, our Surf Team Coach, is present during all practices, contests and events. The Cal Coast Academy Surf Team meets every other day from 8am to 10am at the Cardiff Campgrounds NORTH entrance.

ASB - CCASB's main purpose is to promote student-teacher understanding, work for the betterment of the student body as a whole, develop student leadership and allow for student expression. Student Council Members tend to already be student leaders whose role within the CCASB helps them grow in their leadership abilities. Student Council Members advise, consult, and provide a forum for discussing issues that affect the entire student body. The Student Council Members become the voice between the students and staff. Council Members assist in school fundraisers and social activities. CCASB Members must have good grades, maintaining a 3.0 grade point average. To remain on the Student Council, Members must show good judgment in choices and behavior and be a person others hold in high regard.
Equestrian - The Cal Coast Academy Equestrian Club welcomes any level of student horse involvement, from the seriously competitive and show rider to the casual rider. The majority of our equestrians belong to a local barn where they train for competitions and board their horses. Every member of the Cal Coast Academy Equestrian Club must participate in or observe equine-related events such as horse shows, competitions, rodeos, etc.. Club Members must also participate in non-riding activities such as volunteering at a local horse rescue center, provide lessons to inspiring riders free of charge, volunteer at local barns, etc.. The Cal Coast Academy Equestrian Club strives to build character and horsemanship in our student riders.
Yearbook - The Cal Coast Academy Yearbook Club is a collaboration of both Photography and Yearbook. Club Members are required to pass a Photography II course before getting approval to join.

Club Members are also responsible for taking all photos used in the yearbook. The entire yearbook design, cover, layout & theme are the Club Members sole responsibility as well as all other aspects corresponding to the production of our annual school yearbook.
