This is my children's 3rd year at Cornerstone. They started their Kindergarten with their amazing teacher, Mrs. Darlene Thomas. She definitely made an impact in their young lives. Cornerstone has the right balance of academics, athletics, discipline, and faith. Sending our kids to Cornerstone is one of the BEST decisions we have made in our lives. It is worth the investment. Cornerstone offers a strong foundation for a successful future and a solid Christian faith. Principal Kaye believes in discipline through LOVE & LOGIC which we follow at home. We feel proud sending our children to an established school with an impressive reputation. We plan to keep our children at Cornerstone all the way through 8th grade. We hope they'll start a high school program. Go Cougars!

I have served at Corner Stone Christian Academy for the past 3 years, as a 4th Grade Educator, and believe that it is incumbent upon me to share valuable insight regarding the level of education that is provided, here, at CCA. I, along with my CCA colleagues, take personal pride in providing our students with a strong, academic foundation, that will enable them to be successful beyond these walls. As professionals, we are committed to teach to the "Total Child," providing students with not only an exceptional academic experience, but also, a path towards Spiritual Growth and Character Development. I have always espoused the concept of the "Classroom Family," which gives my students the desire to want to learn because they feel a sense of belonging, value, and acceptance from their teacher. Students are highlighted and shown how 'Special' they are, thus, enabling them to discover how the Love and Grace of Jesus Christ is able to transform their lives both Spiritually, as well as, Academically. As an Educator, I am thrilled to be a viable contributor to the CCA Academic Team, as we continue to move forward using the 21st Century Model (STEM) of Educating our students, while preparing our youth to become Strong Christian Leaders, not only within their spheres of influence, but also, throughout society; thus transforming the World one person at a time.

CornerStone has provided our children with a quality Christian education from preschool through 8th grade. The staff is caring and invested in your child's progress. Thanks to the very involved PTA, the facility is constantly being updated and improved without major tuition increases to the parents. Art, music, computers, PE and Spanish are a core part of all elementary grade levels in addition to the reading, writing, math and science. They provide a good foundation of Christian values and reward the children for good character. They have a well rounded athletics program for the older kids despite being a smaller school. There is so much opportunity here to excel and become a well rounded little individual. I highly recommend this school to all parents.

CornerStone Christian Academy (CCA) is a warm, caring Christian school for children to grow academically, socially and emotionally. The security of the children is paramount. The principal is accessible and helpful, the office staff is wonderful and a delight to deal with. Classroom aids are warm and welcoming the teaching staff is qualified and enthusiastic and attempts to meet individual needs of students. The kitchen staff could not be more accommodating. CornerStone has an expanding performing arts department as well as a respectable sports program. If your child wants to get involved (in an after school activity/sport) it is available at CCA! The key to CCA's success is a great mixture of caring (and involved) parents, a supportive administrative staff, enthusiastic teachers and great students in a Christian environment!

This is a great school. I have had children in pre-school and elementary school. The academics are exceptional and there are also a lot of after school activities, from sports to performing arts. The teachers and staff are warm and caring and have the best interest of my children at heart. There are enough students to allow for many friendships yet it has a family feel as well. All of my children love CornerStone Christian Academy and I would recommend it to anyone looking for quality education and a healthy environment.
