Organizational Statement of Faith


At Cornerstone, we believe each child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. We begin by integrating faith and learning through an outstanding academic program. During our extended school year, we emphasize basic skills in the core subjects of language arts and math. In addition, our curriculum focuses on critical thinking to produce young people who can make wise decisions throughout life. All Cornerstone students study a foreign language, and class work is reinforced with mandatory homework. Our parents also commit to being involved, both through helping students at home and volunteering at the school.
