My son is in his second year at CCS' Kinder Campus. There is no pre-k or kinder program that can compare! The classes have fewer than 10 students. It's not a daycare program! The pre-k program is modeled just like a kinder classroom. It's challenging yet fun. Our son excelled! Because of the pre-k program, he was already reading going into kinder and math is a breeze for him. His teachers are so kind and loving. This program for this tuition rate is unheard of! We can't wait for the new campus on NW Military to open!

My son began K4 at the Kinder Campus in Stone Oak this school year. So far, we love it! He matured so much in the first quarter. He's an emotional kid, but he quickly learned to control his meltdowns. We love his teacher. She is patient, loving and kind. She believes in differentiated instruction so she takes time with each student to teach them at their own level. Every day, the students do math, reading, technology, science, Bible, recess, PE and a special (Spanish, art, music or library). I really can't say enough good things.

Excellent school. I had a daughter graduate from the school. The academics, core values and the spiritual teachings cannot be compared. I would highly recommend CCS!

CCS is an amazing School. We are a military family that moves frequently. My children have settled in as though they have been here since the beginning. We have two boys at CCS - one Elementary and one in Secondary. The teachers in both schools challenge yet love our kids as their own. My 8th grade son has excelled academically in areas that we didn't see were his strengths. Our teachers are also in constant contact with us regarding upcoming projects, assignments, tests, and school events. I love the communication!!!! Our Elementary son's teacher is always keeping us up to date on how he is doing in class and areas that she would like to see him work on. I appreciate that she partners with us to help my son excel! Between sports, organizations, academics, faculty and staff - CCS is Outstanding!

The academic services program offered by CCS is above & beyond any program offered by other private or public schools. The majority of private schools do not even offer a program for students that have learning differences. The faculty at CCS are aware of these students with learning differences and they really work hard to help them be successful in their academic careers.

My children have been attending CCS since 2012, this has been the best decision ever. I hesitated at first coming from a lower tuition school, but the Lord carried us here and he has made it a way for us. My kids are so happy here. The technology, the sports programs,state of the art facilities and the loving and understanding faculty/staff make it all worth it. They are also one step ahead in making CCS the best out there. It really shows that they want to best for us, and I LOVE IT!

My son has been at CCS for two years. We couldn't be happier! It is so comforting to know my son is in a safe and caring place. It seems most of the teachers know him, and he knows kids in all grade levels. We never walk the halls without a "hello" or wave. The academics are slightly more advanced than public school so it keeps my son challenged. In elementary school, we can sign-up for sports teams with other students and they compete together as a team in YMCA. We like that as compared to being placed on a team where we don't know anyone. I can't say enough good things about CCS!

My son started at CCS this year and we love it! The teachers are loving and kind and truly there for the kids. Each week I get positive feedback from his teacher about how he is doing, they keep in contact with you and let you know how your child is doing. I love hearing about the things he is learning through songs and different movements. Most of all I love that I have peace about my son being there, I do not have to worry about his safety nor the intentions of the teachers that work with him.

My children have been at Cornerstone Christian Schools for their entire academic career. It is their home away from home. They each have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences thus far. It is a very well-rounded atmosphere. The children are challenged academically, spiritually, and athletically. I could not imagine have them anywhere else.

My chidren have been at Cornerstone Christian Schools for the last three years. Overall, we have been pleased. While they already have a good academic program, they are continually striving to improve. Both of my children have to work hard to continue to do well in their studies. Two of the things that my family truly appreciates are the caring teachers/staff and the way the school holistically incorporates Biblical principles throughout all areas. While no place is perfect, we definitely have had a good experience here at Cornerstone Christian Schools.

This is a fantastic school with administrators and faculty that are well-educated, progressive, patient and loving. The school emphasizes science, technology, engineering, art and math. They have 100% college acceptance, Bible-based teachings, and are constantly adding new and creatice teaching methods. I wasn't pleased when I switched from public school to CCS, but in retrospect there was no better school I could have attended.
