Words from CCS Alumni

"I look back at my time at Cornerstone and realize how much I miss it--the teachers, the students, my classmates, and what the school stands for...I am so glad to say that I went to Cornerstone. [B]ecause of this school I am starting to become closer to God, something I always said I wanted to do but never got around to doing thanks to my lame excuses. So, thank you, Cornerstone; thank you, teachers and faculty, who want to help each student succeed in [life]." 

-- CCS Alum

"Without a doubt, the ministry of Cornerstone was extremely influential in my life to ground me in faith and to prepare me with academic skills I continue to use. I will always remember my years at Cornerstone with fondness." 

-- Michael Evans, Member of the 1st Graduating Class, 1990

"As a child who was raised Catholic, I knew God my entire life and loved Him. It was not until I began attending The Cornerstone Christian School, though, that my relationship with Christ really began to grow. I first accepted Christ as my Savior during a chapel...and I began to pursue the Lord with more fervor than before. Although my life has [been] thrown curve balls along the way, my relationship with Christ has held solid--undoubtedly due in large part to the firm foundation that I received at Cornerstone. I am so incredibly thankful to have found a home at CCS. It changed the trajectory of my life immeasurably, and I still see the blessings unfolding from my time there through the long-standing friendships that were built in those classrooms, and from the steady foundation of knowledge of Christ that the faculty helped me build. Christ's presence in my life has never wavered, even when I have, and I am so grateful for the part that Cornerstone played in that." 

-- Melanie Russell Subin, Class of 2003

"My educational experience at Cornerstone was life-changing. I was given a foundational understanding of the Scriptures and a safe environment in which to wrestle out my faith. The staff at Cornerstone taught, supported and invested in me in a way that was an example for the way I [now] invest in students and in my own children. Finally, the classmates that I lived with, day-in and day-out, challenged me and were my friends in an extraordinary way. They were, and continue to be, very special, gifted people, and they make me look forward to heaven where we will have time for long chats!" 

-- Faith, Class of 1990

"I am thankful for the people [who] took time to encourage us as teens. The testimonies of our teachers and chapel speakers challenged me as a young adult, and I [have] often heard their words resonating as I have faced difficult situations. The worship in chapel will always warm my heart, and the songs that we were taught and that we raised up together have come into my mind and filled my heart at some challenging times." 

-- Becky Fox Gilbert, Class of 1996

"I only attended CCS until fourth grade, but I have so many fond memories of the staff and the school. I accredit those wonderful years of education to my continued love and appreciation for Christian education. We moved to Kentucky after my fourth grade year, and due to the incredible education that I received at CCS, I skipped the fifth grade! I loved CCS and cherish the sacrifice each teacher made to work in a private school and the sacrifice my parents made to enable me to attend a private school." 

-- Former Student

"I am very thankful for the providence of God in using CCS to form me as an elementary student through loving, caring teachers. Being in a small, intimate school provided me the opportunity to know and be known by my teachers and coaches who were able to shepherd me through the tumultuous years of high school. I will forever be indebted to the teachers who made the sacrificial choice to serve Christ at CCS. Thank you!" 

-- Christian Partyka, Class of 1996
