Vision Statement
Where your past will not define your FUTURE
Mission Statement
The mission of Central Coast High School is to provide a student-centered environment that empowers students to develop their potential, achieve a high school diploma, and become college and career ready. 
School History
The creation of Central Coast High School was a direct result of the base closure of Fort Ord, which began in 1992. As student population dwindled, the decision was made to combine the existing continuation high schools, Marina La Via and Cypress. The staff was combined and Central Coast High School  and it opened its door for the first time in 1992 at a location in Marina. CCHS was moved to the Marshall West / Stillwell site in 2006. In 2010, Central Coast High School was moved to its current location on the Hayes Campus to establish an Educational Options Center to include the Continuation High School, Community Day School, Independent Study program, Home & Hospital and Adult Education

Central Coast is located in the City of Seaside, a diverse and growing city located between Marina and Monterey, California. The school is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
