  • Pusch Ridge Christian Academy is for students in grades 6-12. We offer a classical education in three stages of the trivium. Our Grammar School, grades K-5, is the grammar stage, Middle School, grades 6-8 is the logic stage and High School, grades 9-12, is the rhetoric stage. As a covenantal school, we enroll children from families with a clear commitment to rearing their children in the Christian faith.
  • As a classical school we have a strong emphasis on academic rigor (reflected in our high test scores) and exposing our children to the best in music, art, and literature.

All of my children have gone or are currently going through Cornerstone Christian Academy. We are very impressed by its quality academic as well as grace-filled spiritual environment for our kids. The school's commitment to time-tested classical education from a biblical perspective is priceless.

We love Cornerstone Christian Academy! Their teachers are nurturing providing a small teacher-studio ratio, the school is well-run by the administration. CCA provides a classical education style combined with diverse extra-curricular activities, along with Christian values. Definitely worth checking out.
