At Cornerstone Academy, we believe that we are created to glorify God.
As a Christian school, our primary goal is to partner with parents in helping their
children grow up to impact the world for Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone.
All Cornerstone Academy teachers utilize components of Whole Brain Teaching. This is an instructional approach which involves key words, gestures, games, and humor to engage all parts of the brain during instruction. Students learn concepts much more easily than through a traditional teaching approach.
STEAM integrates science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. Through this approach, students learn how all things are related to each other, whether in school or in life outside of school.
At Cornerstone Academy, we embrace the belief that leadership and ministry skills are best developed through observation and practice. Each middle school student is assigned to a teacher-directed leadership group. The groups create a school environment in which all students have a voice and a sense of belonging.
Student Leadership Groups are responsible for planning and implementing chapel services, for designing sets and props for school programs, for assisting younger students with challenging academic tasks, and for choosing and facilitating activities for the entire school. Our groups empower student leaders while fostering a learning environment in which God is glorified and learning is fun.
As Cornerstone Academy students are growing toward discipleship, they are focused on
character growth which glorifies God. We target the following
Cornerstone Character traits:
