High School

What your student will become is shaped by his or her influences, the truth they wrestle with, and the possibilities they envision. Rooted in faith, we prepare students by instilling truth, sharpening minds with critical thinking, and deepening character leading to an exemplary life that takes them into their best future.   

Profile of an Ideal Graduate

If we do not know where we want to go, we do not know in which direction to head, and we may just end up where we never intended. As a school, we recognize the importance of determining our end destination in order to guide us during each step of the journey. A child’s education, from Pre-K through high school, is indeed a journey. Cornerstone Christian School seeks to partner with parents in guiding students along that journey through graduation. In keeping with Cornerstone’s stated mission, vision, and values, we work and pray towards the goal that each of our graduates will possess the skills and attributes outlined in our profile of an ideal graduate.

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” – Philippians 3:12 (NIV)

CCS has been the best choice of schools for our family! Our two sons have flourished academically, socially and spiritually because of the solid teaching and instruction they’ve received from teachers, coaches and faculty who really love their students! Thank you CCS!!!!

On the outside, Cornerstone gave me English classes, math classes, band practice, cheerleading practice, retreats, sleepovers, homework, essays, and projects. But on the inside, I have gained much more than I ever thought I would. Through Bible classes, leadership classes, one-on-one conversations with teachers and prayer meetings through lunches ... I am finally confident in who God has made me to be. I can say without a doubt that I am beautiful. I matter because God created me.

At Cornerstone, I have the opportunity to really get to know each student as an individual—the ‘whole person’ God created him or her to be. Serving at CCS is unlike my previous experience and is unlike that which occurs at other larger high schools that use more of a cookie-cutter planning approach. When the time comes to design our students’ post-graduate plans, I am able to work to make their plans as unique as the individuals themselves.
