This is a great school with warm and caring people! We choose Cornerstone because they are one of the few accredited schools in the area, and they teach my child about God! After reading reviews on here, I would have to agree with the other parent. Clearly most of the negative comments are coming from one person because many of them have misspellings and don't offer any real or factual help. We think this is a great school with a good staff of people who care. We like their improvements in teachers and communication is outstanding. I will pray for the people who speak badly about a good Christian school like Cornerstone!

This school is discusting. They take your money and then give your children a sub-par education. Some of the teachers aren't even certified. If you believe in your child obviously and publicly getting put down and scolded, this will be the place for you. Some of the staff has very apparent anger issues. I wouldn't take my child here fir anything.

Cornerstone Christian Academy is a school of excellence! The staff is amazing and the students receive such a wonderful education! They center everything on Christ, and are wonderful examples of what it means to follow God. I would not send my child anywhere else but here! Thank you John and Kim Young for your leadership! And thank you to the teachers who make it a safe environment to learn.

My daughter went to CornerStone when she was just 2 years old she continued with them until Kindergarten and then went to their summer program every year until 4th grade. This school/daycare is the best. Kim and John are like family and they are true and honest people. My daughter was above her grade level compared to public school when I put her into public school for the 1st grade. My daughter was very happy there and was treated with the utmost respect every time. I would recommend this school to anyone and for everyone out there who is thinks poorly of them, you have to understand that they are a privately owned establishment. They do not receive government handouts. Check them out on Facebook to see all the activities they do with these kids. I love this place and if I have any more children they will go here as well.

My husband and four children has just moved to the area. On a tour of the school we were mortified and sad. A little guy was getting a scolding in front of everyone. Everybody just laughed. This is not the school for us. We went home crying.


Posted June 19, 2013

Most teachers give a two week notice. I am alarmed that there wasn't even a goodbye. Here today gone tomorrow. I have thought about this for awhile now god bless.


Posted June 11, 2013

This is an excellent school for those who want an incredible head start to Kindergarten or for older children wishing to excel in elementary-6th grade. The teachers are awesome and the administrators do everything possible to provide a way for those less fortunate to attend. Instead of writing critical remarks about a teacher or school, spend a few hours a week or month volunteering with your child's class. The preschool program is excellent and all of the teachers take continuing educ. classes. This school is a great alternative for those seeking to educate their children in biblical values as well as structured general education.

What is going on with this rateing system I saw some other reviews and they were taken off! How can this be a true rateing system when they take off unfavorable reviews. This makes me feel uncomfortable about their honesty. I was checking out this web sight for my 3 grandchildren I will be looking elsewhere. My goodness this is awful..


Posted June 10, 2013

Was going to post a review about this school but notice that all the negative comments were disappearing! How is this so? It was my understanding that the comments and post were to stay so others could review what was being said about he school good or bad!!!!


Posted June 9, 2013

Maybe a fundraiser will get them out of debt... WOW is all I have to say! There has been a huge turn over in teachers. It's got me thinking! Wow!

Cornstone is an amazing school... there is so much love there by the CCA staff and John and Kim. My daughter started preschool there and continued thru 1st grade. She in now is attending middle school in post falls and if it was not for CCA teachers helping her get a jump start on her education she would not be doing as well as she has been in school. She has got awesome grades and kept her focus on school and will continue as she was taught at CCA.. I highly recommend CCA for your kids to attend. If not all years available but the beginning years of their life. We love you CCA teachers and John and KIm xoxoxo

Cornerstone is a GREAT and amazing school that did So So much for my daughter. Not just by being Faith based but by being accountable to themselves and the kids/Parents of the school about their education. My daughter is now in High School (Public) and has excelled because of her early education. She attended CCA from K-7th and I can say with 100% honesty that her GPA ( Straight A's) and advancement in public classes is because of the attention and the focus she was given at CCA ... Highly Recommend!!!

CornerStone Christian Academy has the most loving, caring teachers and staff!!! They are ALL so kind, nurturing and generous that it really feels like your children are being watched over by family! I have 2 children that attend CCA and I couldn't be happier with the school, the teachers, the administrators, the activities and the academics! The well-rounded education that both of my children receive here is exceptional. From age 2 and up, you really can t find a safer, more loving environment than CornerStone for your little ones (and big ones!). I am continually impressed by the level of knowledge that both boys have and find that they are considerably ahead of most children their own age that do not attend this school. Not to mention how much they LOVE going here!! The teachers and staff make it such a FUN place to learn that the kids never complain about going to school. And I never have to worry about them being cared for or what they are learning or doing at this school. I feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful place to entrust with the care and education of my children.

My kids are so blessed to attend Cornerstone! Not only are they receiving a fabulous education, but they are also part of a family at CCA. We can send our kids to school knowing they are in a good, safe place with people who care about them. I highly recommend CCA to anyone!

All 3 of my children have gone to this school from pre k thru 6th grade. It has changed hands a few years ago to John and Kim young who now run it. We can't even begin to tell you how much those two and the teachers love our kids and Christ! They have an amazing heart for Jesus and that love spills out into our kids. My daughter is leaving there this year only because currently there isn't a 7th grade and the only request she has said is she wished she could take mr young with her (aka,, dude/John) it's truly an amazing school and they welcome you with open arms into their family! The staff love The Lord first and it shows in their love for the kids!

I have never been happier with any other school.. There is much heart and love that goes into the children here at Cornerstone. The last few school my child went to he was always unhappy and it was so hard to drop him of because he would always cry... At Cornerstone he cant drop from my arms fast enough because he is so happy and excited to be there.. I know he is in safe and loving hands and I wouldn't trust anyone else to help raise and teach my child. I am also happy to be sending my child to a school who's foundation is based on or Lord Jesus Christ..

CornerStone Christian Academy all the way!!! My daughter has attended CCA since the age of 2 and I couldn't imagine her being anywhere else. She is now in the 3rd grade and has continued to excel academically and we couldn't be prouder. I am amazed at how advanced she is compared to her peers in public school. My daughter is always recommending her school to her friends in the neighborhood. She really enjoys teaching them about Jesus. She has such a good heart and love for Christ and I have to give credit to the staff at CCA for this. John and Kim are such good people and truly care for each child and their families. The teachers at CCA are doing an amazing job!

Our 2 kids are in their 7th year at CornerStone. This is a really great school with a family feel. Our kids have grown up with their classmates. The staff is very kind and loving to kids and the kids love them back. Mrs Young (Principal and Kindergarten teacher) can't walk 10 feet down the hall with out a hug or little one hanging onto her leg. :) Our kids always seem a year or two ahead of their friends and cousins who are in public school. One of the best things was when I explained to the kids that their friends don't learn about Jesus in the public school - they looked at me wide-eyed and asked, "what do they learn?" If you want your kids to learn about Jesus and his love, and get an advantage over their public school peers in their education, come to CornerStone.

Cornerstone Christian Academy has very loving staff members. We are truly blessed to have them as part of our family. My son started attending Cornerstone after attending a daycare in Post Falls that was unfortunately very neglectful and when we found out what was happening at that school we found solace in Cornerstone. Teacher Mindy made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in the door the first time (we had toured before but opted for the other school, hind sight is 20/20 should have chose them from the get go) but when we came back she remembered us from the year before. My son is in Mrs. Young's class now and loves going to school, he is reading, writing and doing math as a kindergartner. I am amazed had how much he soaks up being in her class. Cornerstone has helped us with making sure that he is surrounded by the word of God on a daily basis. He loves it there and we love knowing that he is in a loving, caring safe environment. We have another little one on the way and only wish that they provided care for children under 2 but we will be putting our other child with them as soon as we can. Thank you to the Young's & teachers for their hard work and dedication!

My granddaughter is attending Cornerstone Christian Academy this year. I can honestly say that I have never seen a child who loves to go to school as much as she does. Although she is only in kindergarten her knowledge of Jesus is astounding and her academic abilities amaze me.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
