“To glorify God by equipping students with the tools necessary to pursue a lifetime of learning so that they may discern, reason, and defend truth in service to our Lord, Jesus Christ”
- Cornerstone Classical Mission Statement
As a Christ-centered school, Cornerstone Classical passionately embraces the Word of God as the primary authority for life and teaching. Education is never neutral, and more than simply engaging in a dialogue of religious rhetoric, Cornerstone values Christian character and the communication of truth both through integrated teaching and through the godly example of faculty members who daily model a Christian walk through their lives and demeanor. A Cornerstone education equips the students to love God with all their minds [Matthew 22:37], to ask evocative and probing questions, and to boldly explore the various nuances of knowledge from the conviction that all truth is God’s truth. Cornerstone Classical seeks to integrate faith and learning so that our students may walk with a stronger, deeper faith, ready to glorify God in service to all.
Cornerstone students are expected to adhere to the school rules and to show respect and kindness to all students, parents, faculty and guests. The older students are trained and expected to model excellent character since our campus includes young children who learn by watching them. We train and expect our students to look people in the eye and greet them cordially.
Cornerstone Classical intentionally and strategically maintains a low student-teacher ratio and is committed to maintaining a small overall student population which will encourage strong relationships, honesty, integrity, and community. In all this, the atmosphere at Cornerstone Classical is one of “firmness with freedom” and is a community full of life.
