I have two children in Christ the Cornerstone; one in preschool and one in Kindergarten. Being a military family, we are constantly on the move and it is usually our children that have the most difficulty coping with the change. With that being said, finding a warm, loving, understanding environment for my children is always my highest priority, second to none. I researched schools all over the area before settling on Christ the Cornerstone and I couldn't be any happier. The education that my boys are getting is top notch and only second to the amount of love and attention that they receive here. When my current Kindergartener first started school I was extremely apprehensive. He is a VERY rambunctious child who often has the attention span of a butterfly, but he already tests past a first grade level for public school and my preschooler would already test out of a public school Kindergarten! The Preschool rivals the grade school in every way and my youngest ADORES all of the preschool teachers, (Who often help one another). Everyone at CTC is wonderful and we are going to be sad to have to leave this school when the time comes as it has become part of our family!

CTCA is a great school! The teachers are compassionate and attentive to my kids. My kids are currently are in preschool and I plan to have them attend CTCA for kindergarten. I have seem my kids develop and learn much more that most preschoolers. My kids love school very much, they even want to go on the weekends. The curriculum is extremely high and they flourish in the warm and loving environment. It is extremely important to shape and guide the young minds at an early age. This learning experience is the backbone for their future education!

We made the right choice. When looking for an elementary school for our daughter we looked around at several schools. We finally decided on CTCA. When it was time for our son to start preschool we knew to send him to the attached preschool. The teachers are all wonderful and more then willing to help you when you have questions. The class size are small and the kids get the attention they need. I'm very pleased with the progress both of my kids have made at this school. My son already has a love for reading and will be starting kindergarten next year. My daughter loves going to school and I never here her complain about school. Can't say enough good things about CTCA.

All my three kids goes to CTC, both preschool and elementary programs. All the teachers that my children have are all experienced, loving, dedication and passion to teach. Small class size. Affordable tuition. Fun learning environment. My kids love to go to school everyday! What can you ask for more!

I removed my child from this school and put her in public school because of the lack of training her instructer had. She was not progressing and learning well.

Excellent school. Our daughter just completed the 3 year old pre-school program at CTCA. She has made great strides in her academic, social, and emotional development, since beginning at CTCA. It is a safe, nurturing environment, which allowed us to feel confident and comfortable in her enrollment there. The small student-teacher ratios ensured more individualized attention to each student. It is a wonderful, Christian, school community in which practically all of the teachers know all of the students, and all of the students know each other. If we had not relocated to another area in San Diego County, we would have absolutely kept her at CTCA. I have highly recommended CTCA to several friends who look forward to enrolling their children into CTCA.

Both of my children attend CTC. They started there in pre-school and are now entering Kindergarden and 4th Grade. As a military spouse, their security and stability is very important to me. I feel comfortable and assured that my children are well taken care of at CTC. Their care has also helped instill in them, values and confidence. I continue to be very pleased with the curriculum, staff, and teachers. Thanks to CTC, my children will have the solid educational foundation that they will need as they grow and continue through the higher levels.

I love CTC. My son has been there since pre-school and will entering 2nd grade. My nephew is the same age and my sons reading skills and math abilities are way beyond, fully attributable to the curriculum and teachers and staff at CTC.

My daughter has been at CTC since pre-school and she loves it. She is now going into 1st grade. All the kids are more advanced, the academics are advanced. I can't say enough about the teachers. The class sizes are smaller and no child gets left out. There is one on one mentoring which you will not get in a larger school. The teachers truly care about every last one of their students. Leadership skills and student involvement starts as early as 1st grade. I believe that students that attend CTC will grow to be leaders in our communities and nation.

Christ The Cornerstone Academy is, without a doubt, one of the best Private Schools in Southern California. The Student to Teacher Ratio is small, the academic instruction is excellent, and the children actually look forward to going to school. My son has friends that go to public schools, and even his friends wish their parents would send them to Christ The Cornerstone. That says it all. Chilren who attend this school are light years ahead of their public school counterparts.

My son and my daughter attend CTC. This is an excellent christian school with a strong emphasis on academic performance. The teachers are very caring and are readily available. The class size is small, about 15 to 20 students per class, which is essential for good teacher-student interaction.

My daughter is in this school since preschool. She been to 3 different preschools, this is the best for academic, nurturing environment, and family oriented. She was learning her ABCs, numbers, basic math, and art activities. Furthermore, every teachers in this school know my daughter name, very impressive.

We hare truly blessed to be apart of CTC, both of our boys now 4 and 6 yrs old have attended since 3 years of age. Pre-Kinder curriculum is very caring and christian based. Kinder & 1st grade teachers are skilled in their teaching. My 1st grader is reading well above is grade and thoroughly enjoys math. School is well organized and focused on christian behavior.

After a year, I have a much better idea of what I should be looking for. Find a school with a strong emphasis on academic excellence, in a nurturing environment. A school that makes it easy for parents and students to stay focused on education and supporting the school. I think that CTC mostly hits the mark. Most teachers are excellent and dedicated. There is a higher emphasis on academic excellence than at other private schools nearby. Areas they need to Focus on: Some classrooms are too small (Cramped) Bad Lunch Program (expensive, unorganized) Administrative organization (There s must be an easier way!) Communication with parents (I spend a lot of time feeling out of the loop regarding events/deadlines - parent/teacher communication is excellent!) Aftercare program (lacks direction, getting better) All in all it is a nice little school. The school and preschool are trying to expand, but seem to be struggling with logistics.

Small class size. Teachers are devoted to the success of each individual child. Before and after school care programs. Daycare/ preschool-seventh grade. No lunch through the school(must bring or pay high catering cost). Fairly strict uniform policy.
