My middle child attended pre-k this year for the first time. CCA is an impressive school! We have had a wonderful experience throughout this year and are looking forward to re-enrolling our daughter as a kindergartener and sending our older to 3rd grade at CCA in the fall. Many dedicated teachers and staff who care about their students. .

My oldest child began kindergarten at Cornerstone. Within weeks I knew that this would be the school for our family for many years to come! The faculty and staff are caring and well qualified. Students are challenged to grow academically and spiritually. Cornerstone truly cares about each child, family and situation. Next year our baby will begin Cornerstone as a kindergartener. This has been looked forward to with anticipation for years. Anyone entering Cornerstone will immediately know that they are a part of a caring community and family of learners!

My son absolutely loved this school. He went to the summer camp and ALWAYS talked about what he did. They did some great things over the summer like taking field trips on every Wednesday. They went to the Brookfield Zoo where he got to see zebras, Blackberry Farms, and went to Starved Rock amongst many other great field trip locations. They also took him and his classmates to the pool twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. He loves to swim so this was a bonus for him. On Fridays, they did activities and had a cookout at the school. All of the staff and teachers knew his name and were very nice to him always greeting him and saying bye at the end of the day. I would recommend this to anyone that was interested. I am sending my son back next year.

I love Cornerstone Christian Academy. The teachers are dedicated and sincerely concerned about the wellbeing and progress of the children. They are vested and dedicated in providing high quality education for the children. The school is safe. The quality of education is very high, and the children are education on the foundation of the Christian faith. They are taught to love everyone, and not look down at any one. They are also taught to be respectful. Need I say more....My family loves this school!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. 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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
