Dear Prospective Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Coast Episcopal School.  Since 1950, Coast Episcopal has been a model of excellence in education on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  Coast Episcopal offers opportunities for spiritual, academic, and social growth, in the Episcopal tradition, for children in Toddlers, Preschool, and Kindergarten through sixth grade.

Our goal is to foster a lifelong love of learning and to develop each student’s potential, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, creatively, and physically, in preparation for college and for life.  Small classes foster close relationships between the children and their teachers and are conducive to individualized education.  A challenging and stimulating curriculum, designed to meet each student’s individualized learning styles, utilizes hands-on learning and multisensory techniques.  Coast Episcopal is committed to providing the highest quality education and academic excellence in a loving, Christian environment.

I encourage you to call (228.452.9442) and schedule a visit to our campus so you can experience our school firsthand.  We would love to introduce you to our school!
