Cornerstone Academy

  • Cornerstone Academy is a small, private high school dedicated to giving students an opportunity to complete their high school careers in an atmosphere defined by Christian faith.
  • We at Cornerstone Academy deliberately keep our student body small so that we can continue to give significant attention to each student.
  • Cornerstone Academy is accredited by the North Central Association (NCA) and the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation The Academy's mission is to provide educational opportunities to students who do not wish to attend traditional schools and to provide these students chances to learn about the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • The staff of the Academy represents a number of evangelical denominations and independent churches, with many of the founders coming from LaSalle Street Church in Chicago.
