Coastside Leadership Academy is faith-based private education association that is operated by a 508(c)(1)(a) private-member ministry. The academy provides a safe space for teens that supports their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well being. We provide a high school experience backed by current research for how teenagers learn and grow. Nature is used to help guide, ground, and spark curiosity for the students as they co-create their learning experience with trained mentors.
It is important to know that Coastside Leadership Academy is not a school. Students must be enrolled in a homeschool PSA filed by their family. Filing a homeschool PSA can be done online and more information is here.
A faith based private member education association is a type of Private Membership Association (PMA). A PMA is a legal constitutionally compliant entity created for the purposes of protecting its members’ 1st, 4th, 5th, and 14th Amendment rights. Members are allowed to associate, maintain privacy, and practice free speech. PMAs are in the private domain meaning, we are free from the restraints of most government oversight, rules, and regulations. This means we are free to use the best current research on how to educate teenagers and provide a safe space where students and employees are able to maintain medical freedom. Any person attending any programming, classes, camps, seminars, or events must become a member to participate.
