CCS Partnerships with Homeschoolers
General Opportunities – Open to the Public
The homeschooling community is encouraged to join us each Wednesday (along with the general public) for our chapels. The standard times for these chapels, which are subject to change due to unique needs and opportunities that arise throughout the course of the school year, are as follows:
- Elementary Chapel (K-Gr. 5) from 9:45-10:15 am
- Middle & High School Chapel (Gr. 6-12) from 8:30 - 9:15 am
Likewise, homeschooling families are welcome to attend many of our full-school assemblies that are scheduled throughout the school year.
Select Courses Available for Grades 1-12 Enrollment
We also offer the opportunity for homeschool families to enroll in a specific selection of elementary and middle school classes (see below). High school students are also invited to apply to take up to two high school courses each year. Enrollment as a homeschooler is based on the availability of seats. For more information and a list of registration fees, you are encouraged to make an appointment with the school principal.

Standardized Testing for Homeschoolers
Homeschool students are invited to participate in standardized testing opportunities at Cornerstone with advanced registration and the availability of seating.
Each October Cornerstone administers the PSAT. Homeschooled sophomores and juniors who are interested in taking this test may register by contacting the school guidance counselor through the school office. The 2016 PSAT will require a pre-administration meeting, which will be held on Friday, 10/7/2016, at 9:20 (for approximately one hour) in the McLain building. Homeschool students must attend this pre-administration meeting in order to participate in the PSAT, which takes place on Wednesday, 10/19/2016, from 8:30-12:00 noon. All questions should be directed to Mrs. Tammy Gerhard, our guidance counselor, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited seats are available to homeschoolers.
In April, Cornerstone administers the ACT Aspire to Grades 3 through 10. Homeschool students are invited to participate in these tests as openings are available. This requires advanced registration. Since we order tests in the fall, contacting the school early in the fall will help to ensure availability of testing materials.
