Cornerstone is a wonderful environment! The academics are very strong, and the school is still able to offer many extracurricular activities for the students as well. Most importantly, the staff is invested in the spiritual growth of the students at Cornerstone!!

Cornerstone Prep is one of the best things in my family's life. We love it and truly thank God for being apart of such an amazing place. The education is above top notch. The teachers really care about the students and helps each one to succeed. The administration is always looking for ways to improve and makes sure the school stays on the cutting edge. My 4 children who are students at Cornerstone are growing spiritually and in their academics. I feel Cornerstone is very forward thinking and I would rather be no where else. Great education at a great price.

Wonderful school. Fully prepares students for college. Caring faculty and administration who genuinely and personally know each student. Excellent Biblical foundation while preparing students for a secular world.
