Our goal at Cornerstone Christian Schools is to nurture spiritual growth within each student. To that end, we have regularly scheduled times of sharing in God's Word as well as times throughout the day when spiritual principles are integrated within lessons and other activities.
Chapel sessions bring students together for special times of worship, teaching, and singing. In addition to school staff, church leaders from the community at large participate in these special times.
It is important that students involved in Christian education also attend church on a regular basis. This is predicated on the belief that regular corporate worship and active involvement with a local church body provides a necessary complement to the Biblical instruction received at school.
One of the unique purposes of Cornerstone Christian Schools is to prepare Christian young people for effective service for Christ in whatever career they choose. Since effective Christian service can be performed only by those who have dedicated their lives to Christ, Cornerstone Christian Schools desire that each student develops a vital, personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ, and ask all students to measure their lives by scriptural standards of conduct.
Each student should understand that attending Cornerstone Christian is a privilege granted to those who are willing to demonstrate a spirit of Christ-likeness and harmony with the goals and philosophy of the school. By applying for admission to Cornerstone, the student indicates a desire to become a sincere, cooperative member of the student body.
Self-discipline and spiritual growth are never a result of superimposed rules; these goals can be attained only when students and their parents make the achievement of these attributes a priority. Therefore, Cornerstone Christian’s standards of conduct are designed to serve only as an external guideline for student behavior; our ultimate hope is for students to grow into a fuller level of Christian maturity. To produce an environment which will encourage these goals, Cornerstone expects every student to be open and willing to be taught and discipled by the school staff, and to demonstrate by attitude and behavior a life committed to following Jesus Christ.
The primary emphasis in all areas of learning at Cornerstone Christian Schools centers on character development. While a strong emphasis is placed on the academic program, the entire school staff also works towards encouraging a strong and vital relationship with Jesus Christ. Our ultimate goal is to mold young lives into the image in which they were originally created by God; that is, the image of God himself as seen in the person of Christ.
Character Education is a priority at CCS and involves the entire school community – school leaders, parents, teachers, staff, and students. The focus is on shaping the hearts of our students as we endeavor to instill biblically based, positive ethical values, such as caring, good manners, respect, responsibility, fairness, and honesty.
