the cornerstone advantage
Cornerstone Christian School offers a wonderful Christian education for children in the Roaring Fork Valley. Through small classroom sizes, a strong teaching staff, and intentional teaching children thrive in their learning at CCS.
In just one year of an intentional and strategic program of study which challenges each student academically and spiritually, Cornerstone Christian School(CCS) students stand as a testimony that our schools model not only works well but equips students with the tools that they need to succeed.
Looking at our CTP-4 (Comprehensive Testing Program Edition 4) standardized testing scores from 2014-15 with our 2015-16 scores reveals incredible and significant increases-in just one year-prompting an “Excellent”.
CCS students are scholar athletes displaying an incredible ability to transfer what they know from their studies to their play. Teaming up with local schools, our students have the opportunity to play sports, while we also hold cross country on our campus.
CCS is committed to excellence starting with our prekindergarten program. . With an experienced and caring staff, along with low teacher to child ratios, we want each child and family to have the best prekindergarten experience possible!
A beautiful environment for learning, socialization, character building and most importantly spiritual growth, CCS’s goal is to make learning exciting and fun. Cornerstone’s prekindergarten staff has developed a curriculum that is an active balance of activities: teacher directed and child initiated. Understanding what children at different age levels love and using that passion to teach through so that they are excited to learn, is a foundation in Cornerstone’s program. Learning in the classroom is fun and exciting through phonics, hands-on math, writing skills, science, Spanish, art, music, and play. Character development is taught through Bible stories and Bible verses as well as through individual assessment. Each child works at his/her own pace and ability. The CCS staff is actively involved in each child’s social and character development, while focusing on each individual’s gifts and talents.
Our elementary school students through high school students learn daily in our STEM lab, where they are learning how to problem solve and have life long, 21st century skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. They partake in art class, music, Spanish, Latin, Theology, and Apologetics, giving each student critical thinkinking and knowledge as they make career choices for their future. We have a student body run drama club that puts on a full production each year, and are building an adventure program to give children the opportunity to experience God’s glory and creation outside of our school building’s walls.
