Although Pacific Hope School is a relatively new educational entity (our modern building expansion was opened in 2018) - approved by NESA, New South Wales Educational Standards Authority - it is grounded in a long and well-recognised history.

As early as 1979 Pacific Hills Christian Education Ltd, the operators of Pacific Hope School, launched a different school with the express intent of it providing quality Christian education to students with special and specific learning needs in the context of a mainstream school setting.

As a result, since its inception Pacific Coast Christian School sponsored a Special Programs unit that catered for the specific learning needs of students with various disabilities, through both withdrawal and in class support strategies and teaching assistance. The provisions of this Special Programs unit reflected the heart of Pacific Coast to give dignity and respect to all students and to have students of all abilities and capacities learn with and from each other.
