CAH provides a rich variety of activities to allow students to connect with each other and their community. Activities include sports, sailing, clubs, cheer, mock trial, yearbook, news publications, school dances, and a variety of ASB-sponsored events. The student culture at CAH is remarkably accepting, nurturing, and wholesome, and all school events are designed to help students engage with each other in a safe and supervised environment. All students are encouraged to give back to their communities and are required to complete 37.5 community service hours each year that they are enrolled at CAH.
Visual & Performing Arts
The visual and performing arts possess inherent value essential in the creation of well-rounded students. Studying the arts enables students to connect to content in new ways and gain a greater understanding of themselves and others. CAH instruction follows the CA State Standards for artistic perception, creative expression, historical and cultural context, aesthetic valuing, and connections/applications, as well as the Common Core Standards for reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Visual and Performing Arts courses provide students with an academically enriching and rigorous study of the arts. While many students participate in one of the VAPA clubs or teams, many also take one or more VAPA classes before they graduate.
Coastal Academy High School is proud to have a classically trained French chef on the team! Our professional chef offers a multi-tiered culinary arts program designed to empower and equip students with functional cooking skills that will serve them in their high school years and beyond. We currently offer Culinary Arts 1, 2 3, and a basic skills course. We plan to add a Food Photography course in the near future.
The Associated Student Body (ASB) is the student-led leadership team that promotes school spirit, develops leadership skills, and provides relevant school activities. ASB sponsors a variety of events throughout the year that provide the opportunity for students to participate while developing social skills and healthy relationships. ASB-sponsored events include spirit days, dances, and many community service projects.
Juniors and seniors may also apply to LINK CREW, a group of upperclassmen dedicated to mentoring and supporting incoming freshmen during their first year of high school.
The Associated Student Body organizes and approves clubs that allow students to meet and gather around a particular interest with a faculty advisor. CAH typically has 10 or more clubs meeting throughout the year on various days of the week. Examples of our clubs include art club, Bible club, surf club, skateboard club, fishing club, GSA, FCA, Helping Hands, and Environmental Club.
