Tuition, Fees, Financial Aid

Our 25-acre campus, located in Long Beach, MS, has plenty of space for our cherished and engaged students to enjoy the great outdoors and features buildings for each of our three academic programs:  Toddler Town (18 months – 3 years old), Preschool (3 & 4 year olds) and Elementary (Transitional Kindergarten – 6th Grade).

The Gail Keenan Art Center houses a gallery used for student and professional shows plus our Art and Music Programs, and the Seemann Makerspace provides students with hands-on, STEAM-based opportunities to explore robotics, video production, 3-D printing and laser-cutting.

This combination of spaces to learn and grow provides the infrastructure necessary to offer the unique, magical experience that is Coast Episcopal School.

Grades TK-6

Our Elementary Program is designed as a continuum of development and exploration, rather than a narrow set of skills to be mastered, to help develop and encourage the student’s life-long love of learning. Our thematic curriculum crosses all content areas and is taught using a variety of materials and resources. Our teachers encourage students to stretch their minds and imaginations, both in our family-like classroom atmosphere and also with special events, research projects, experiments, and field trips.

Seemann Makerspace

All Grades

Imagine a place where theory and practice truly collide, where students learn algorithms and equations, grammar and sentence structure – and then take that knowledge and use it to design and create real, functional final products that demonstrate their understanding. That’s the Seemann Makerspace at CES.

As with all independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the cost of an outstanding education. At Coast, the difference between tuition and the actual cost to educate a child is around $1,400. Your gifts help us to deepen our students' experience, expand our programs, and achieve our mission. Every gift, big or small, makes a difference.
