Cornerstone Academy

3401 NW 34th Street
Gainesville, FL 32605-0326
Tel: (352)378-9337
Grades: PK - 12 | 191 students
We offer a full college preparatory academic program in a combination schedule of classroom study and home study for Pre-K through 12th grade.
Our Classic University Model program of study takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for grades 6-12, while parents oversee home study with teacher-directed lesson plans on Monday; however, next year we will offer families that need a full 5 Days/Week schedule the opportunity to place their children in an established, non-denominational, classical Christian school.
We are choosing to carry out a careful year-over-year transition in both the Grammar and Logic schools, beginning with the K5, 1st, 5th and 6th, adding grades in both Grammar and Logic until multiple options are available for all grades.   Optional Monday/Thursday school plans will still be available for the grades that have not been transitioned to the 3, 4 or 5 day model.
