Great teachers! They are really interested in seeing all of their students do well. Many have taught for years either there at CCA, while others have come over from public schools to a better atmosphere. No school is perfect, but the teachers here are truly good.
It is tough honestly as you have to stay on top of things. However, the classes balance out overall and again, the rigor has prepared me to succeed in college. The teachers know when things are happening and usually lighten during those times (i.e. playoffs, history fairs, etc.). The school also has a policy designating test days so that students don't excessive exams fall on one day.
I graduated from CCA after having attended public schools for much of my life. What a blessing it was to come to Cornerstone. The academic experience was personal and challenging. Being in college, I have found that my years at CCA totally prepared me for success in college. While at CCA I was able to develop viable relationships with teachers and coaches who mentored me and poured into me spiritually. Academically, Mrs. Swaim, Mrs. Rogers and Mrs. Grohman are the best! They challenged all of us at high levels which have helped me tremendously at college! The school is small, but personal, and students have a great opportunity to become well rounded because of the many programs offered at CCA! Athletics are top notch, with a great work out facility. The worship music is amazing each week in chapel! Thank you CCA for opening the doors of opportunity for me! The scholarships I earned from my success at CCA have opened the doors of higher education for me. Thanks so much! God bless all who work there!
My son started Kindergarten this year. He has grown so much as an individual in all areas spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and academically. His teacher to student ratio is very low compared to the public school. He enjoys the close knit family he has here. The parents of his classmates are family as well. We enjoy the fellowship with one another especially with sports. The curriculum is A beka and it is challenging for the students. He enjoys waking up and going to school. Teachers are nice and really have a heart for their students.
CCA is a warm and friendly Christ Centered School. The teachers have been so influential in the life of my two children. They have grown spiritually, emotionally, academically and socially at school school. My kids world makes sense, church, home and school---Jesus is in all those places! They have an opportunity to play elementary sports, speech meet, and all of their lessons are tied back to God's Word! Great job CCA!! We are so glad we have a great place to send our children!
Our kids are attending CCA because they love the atmosphere there. They have friends with excellent character and teachers who are awesome encouragers and models of how faith is to be lived out. We have done public school, home school and now CCA for several years and each has its unique challenges. If you are a believer looking for a true christian school experience for your kids in the Granbury area, this is the place. The school is now sharing the Church of Christ building near Granbury High School. They are still non-denominational in nature but are being hosted by the church as a wonderful kindness while the school plans a future site. The kids say it is working out great. They also have an excellent weight room, locker rooms and showers at the old Meander Rd. site. They still host their home football games under the lights there. The new athletic director, Coach Ike, has been great for my older kids by focusing on consistent long range conditioning for overall prevention of injury in any sport of which the school offers many. Blessings to you in your seach for the best place for your children.
My daughter has attended CCA since kindergarten. We love the staff and teachers. This school has high academic standards and moral values. Their not perfect, but all schools have to make adjustments as they grow. They encourage strong family involvement in the school. Our new location is so nice. We now have a full Gym and cafeteria. CCA offers band, choir, art, Spanish and nearly every sport. Great place to educate your kids.
