Student Life Overview

Cornerstone provides opportunities for students beyond the core subject areas during the school day, and beyond!

Elementary School (K4 – 5th)

Beginning with our youngest students, we offer unique opportunities for our students to thrive. Along with core subjects, students enjoy art, music, Spanish, service learning, and STEM classes. Through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), Cornerstone students develop as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

Each week, students gather for Chapel where they not only learn about the Word of God but they celebrate character achievements alongside their peers. Throughout the year, students participate in special events including a Christmas program, Hispanic Heritage festival, Black History Month programs, and more!

Middle School (6th & 7th)

As students transition to middle school, many creative offerings are available. Students have the opportunity to take visual art classes that provides an introduction to art through a multimedia experience. Students learn and apply the elements and principles of design to produce creative art projects that reflect their understanding of these concepts. Recently added, our 6th and 7th graders enjoy learning to play the keyboard in music class!

Each week, students gather for Chapel where they learn from Bible teachers and guest speakers. Along with weekly Chapel services, Cornerstone students look forward to special programs including student-led Christmas programs, Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, and finding ways to serve their community.

High School (8th – 12th)

Cornerstone High School is an exciting place to be! Students have the opportunity to continue keyboard instruction in music class, participate in the Gospel Choir, join the National Beta Club, and so much more. With newly renovated spaces, countless opportunities await our students.

While our focus is on rigorous academics, character development and faith formation, we also look for ways to give back to the community. Students in grades 8-12 are required to obtain a minimum of 20 hours of community service by the end of each school year. Past projects include park clean-up days, food drives and supporting local food pantries, as well as service projects on our campuses. Members of the National Beta Club are required to complete a minimum of 25 hours. 

Dual Enrollment (10th – 12th)

Students in 10th through 12th grades have the incredible opportunity to earn college credits by taking Dual Enrollment classes through Jefferson State Community College while they attend Cornerstone. 

Through this program, our students can graduate Cornerstone with up to 26 hours of college credits, which is nearly a full year of college! This offering allows students to take classes that we are not able to offer, such as higher-level math classes. Cornerstone pays for the dual enrollment tuition and books for every student enrolled allowing our graduates to finish college with less debt.
