I don't understand how someone on this site gave Cornerstone Christian Academy in Phila. a 3 star. Must be a disgruntled parent who found the school will not tolerate any bullying, kids have been suspended, some expelled. The teachers standards are high, they do not grade on a curve and if you see a C and want a B for your child, then you talk to the teacher, take the time to see if extra credit/more work, extra reading, your child doing more work may improve a grade. These teachers can't cut children slack, it is a disservice to the CHILDREN. But here is why CCA is exceptional. You will be updated by the teacher, spoken to, called, mailed, ask to meet, because the teachers WANT your child to do well. These teachers will love and care for and nourish your children but they will not lower their standards for your children. The work must be done, and I must say the 3 star someone graded them is not showing what I SEE everyday when I pick up my child and we walk home and I'm impressed with the homework she receives everyday. I am in close contact with other parents, and they all sing praises about CCA. Even the staff is top-notch and the principal amazing.
