Christ The Cornerstone Academy

  • Christ the Cornerstone Academy uses Abeka curriculum which is provided for the educational needs of the pupils from preschool through fifth grade.
  • It takes into consideration the background of the pupil and adjusts the learning experience to the ability of the pupil.
  • Every pupil is given the opportunity to develop his or her abilities in the same measure as the Lord has blessed him or her. The objectives of a Christian education cannot fully be accomplished in a school day.
  • It is very important to have the same aims and directions being reinforced in the home.
  • During the year, we encourage the school children to share their joy in Christ with the members of Christ the Cornerstone Lutheran Church in worship service.
  • Christ the Cornerstone Academy welcomes students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
  • Christ the Cornerstone does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, and athletic or other school programs.
