Academics

Cornerstone Christian Academy is committed to providing a solid liberal arts, college preparatory education presented in the context of a biblical worldview.   In order to accomplish this objective, all students take classes in six core subjects.  These include: Bible, history, English, science, math, and foreign language.  Additional classes in art, music, physical education, and technology are provided for students at all levels.  The sequence of these enrichment courses is determined for students in grades K-8.  High school students may select their own elective courses to supplement the core.  Dual-credit courses and on-line courses are also available.  Curricular materials are reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that we use the most effective tools for fulfilling the Academy’s mission.

Early Education

Early Ed is a special beginning for your child’s education at Cornerstone Christian Academy.  Individual care and attention given to your child sets Cornerstone apart from other early learner programs.  Young children are taught foundational truths within a secure and nurturing community while fostering spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. Scripture is the basis for teaching, training, and instilling a love for God and learning. Thus, Early Education begins the journey for young children to discover who God is and who He has created them to be in Christ. 

Developmental Kindergarten is designed for students who might benefit from an additional year of early learning or who miss the cut-off age for kindergarten. This class is open to students who turn five by October 31. Instruction is rooted in experiential learning with multi-sensory and play-based lessons, all taught through a biblical worldview. Students will grow in literacy, math, science, handwriting, and problem-solving skills, as well as social, emotional, and spiritual development which will prepare them for kindergarten the following year.

What to Expect:
