A Private Christian School With a Kingdom Purpose

Empowering Students to Glorify God

As the largest private Christian school in Birmingham, we partner with families and supporters to make sure every child knows the love of Christ, benefits from academics that are world class, enjoys a culture where good character is valued, and can learn in an environment that’s safe and full of hope.


We use a three-point approach to education, called the The Cornerstone Way. This all-encompassing outlook sets us apart from other schools by offering academics that surpass state standards, a complete character development program, and a strong Christian foundation. For more than three decades, we’ve seen this approach empower students to be responsible and productive citizens of the world, all to the glory of God.

Excellence Together

We welcome students to our private Christian school in Birmingham, Alabama, and we provide individualized attention and rigorous academics starting in K4 and continuing through high school graduation. This is not a place where students fall through the cracks. Each student is mentored by Christian leaders and taught to seek excellence together.

All of that contributes to our long-term, proven success — and it’s a success story that you and your family can be part of.

Start here.

We are here to answer all your questions: How does the academic program prepare students for success? How does Cornerstone help students develop character? Is private school affordable for my family?

We will walk your family through the entire process

The Cornerstone Way

Our vision is to be a world-class, Christ-centered school in the inner city. We offer that to your family at our private preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school through:

Rigorous Academics:

Our academic program is built on research-based curriculum, inquiry-based instruction, and teacher best practices.

Character Development:

Character development is integrated and modeled throughout the school day.  Students learn to be self-aware and become self-correcting in their character at school, in their homes, and in the community.

Faith Formation:

Students are taught to integrate biblical principles into their daily lives through daily Bible classes and weekly chapel services. They also learn to create a culture of care for one another and themselves with a high level of accountability.
