Cornerstone is a great school. I had attended since 3-year-old preschool and truly love the staff and teachers. Keep up the amazing work CCS!

My three children attended Cornerstone Christian School and the school is excellent in all areas. CCS has a strong , faith based curriculum that prepares students for some of the most rigorous high schools in the state. The family atmosphere of CCS is beyond compare. Each individual your children come in contact with at CCS is an example of a follower of Christ. Your children will make friends for not only a lifetime, but for eternity.

Where academic excellence and a Christ-centered worldview meet. We couldn't be happier with the staff and school overall.

I love that my daughter has the opportunity to go to a school where she learns more than reading, writing and arithmetic! She is learning how to be compassionate, kind and generous!

I love Cornerstone Christian School! I teach at the school and four of my grandchildren attend and I could not be more happy with their experience. C.C.S. Has a strong academic program, teaches and nurture his faith in God and understanding of his word, has a wonderful staff and parent support, and also provides rich experiences in art, physical education, and music as core subjects. They also have afterschool enrichment and sports for grades fourth through eighth . What more could I ask for!

We`ve had three sons come through CCS. You will find no other administration and staff who love and care for the students and their families the way this administration and staff does.

We have 3 children at Cornerstone Christian School. It has been a good experience for our family. It provides smaller class sizes with a nurturing faith based learning environment. There's a strong emphasis on academics. We highly recommend CCS.
