Service Learning

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

1 Peter 4:10

At Cornerstone, we prioritize working with our students to serve our communities. Beginning in K4, our students learn the significance of giving back. From creating care packages to share with unhoused Birmingham citizens, labeling food bags for Rise Against Hunger, and creating wreaths for nursing home residents, our students learn to serve in various capacities.

Service learning is a process in which students acquire knowledge then apply it in the community where they live. Each student in grades 8-12 are required to obtain a minimum of 20 hours of community service at the end of each school year. Community service involves park clean-up days in the local community, food drives that serve local community organizations, as well as service projects at each of our campuses. Cornerstone National Beta Club members are required to complete a minimum of 25 service learning hours each school year. While service learning hours are required at our high school, we often find students are eager to serve others outside of school expectations.
