Day in the Life

General School Mission

We want our children to be truly brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord through daily contact with the great teachings of the Holy Bible and the love of Christ. "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6. At Christ the Cornerstone Academy, Christian Education makes a difference -not CHRIST AND EDUCATION, but CHRIST IN EDUCATION. (From History and Philosophy section of Student/Family Handbook)
