Morning snacks are provided by students. For those staying through lunch, they can either bring a lunch or purchase one through the school's hot lunch program.

Health

Immunizations must be up-to-date before entry to the program.

Uniforms

We love our uniforms, and feel they play an important role in alleviating potential competition among students. We also don't want obtaining uniforms to be a hardship for any of our families. Click the link below for our 2016-2017 Uniform Policy, and for uniform purchasing options.

(E)xtended (D)ay(C)are

EDC is offered to our middle school students after school, from 3pm-6pm. Students are provided with snacks, homework room availability, and access to the playground and sports field. Middle schoolers are supervised in an area separate from elementary students while they are in the school building. 

Accreditation

Since 1987, Cornerstone Christian Elementary School has been fully accredited by both the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC). Accreditation is important in middle school because it holds programs accountable to a higher set of standards, with verification from credible, trained professionals in our field. We commit to this process each school year and are visited by an accreditation team each term our accreditation is up for renewal. ACSI provides leadership seminars, teacher conferences, literature, and other opportunities for staff growth, and continued development. Christian schools are also represented by ACSI in state and national issues concerning Christian education.
