Mission Statement

Coggin Memorial promotes the framework of Biblical Christian education consistent with the teaching of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. To implement this goal, the school employs a faculty whose lives and practices demonstrate an interaction of faith and learning in his/her discipline.


In 1895, Seventh-day Adventists established an educational system in keeping with Biblical beliefs. In the mid-1950s, this system was adopted by Coastal Bend Area Seventh-day Adventist and developed into Coggin Memorial School. The purpose of Coggin Memorial School is to guide youth who desire spiritually oriented instruction. In doing this, Coggin Memorial School endeavors to develop the whole person: academically, mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. Coggin Memorial School aims to train youth professionally and vocationally thereby promoting the improvement of the student, ultimately strengthening the church and the society in which we live. In preparation for the literal Second Coming of Christ, Coggin Memorial School provides direction and opportunities for Christian service. The curriculum is designed to give each student the desire to recreate the image of Christ in his/her life. To implement these goals, the school employs a faculty whose lives and practices demonstrate an interaction of faith and learning that are in accordance with the principles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Coggin Memorial School.
