I was a little concerned about transferring my son to Corner Stone Christian, I was afraid it would not challenge him and offer him what the honors programs in public school could. I was so wrong. He is so well rounded now. He did very well in college and has an awesome out look on life thanks to the biblical principles he learned in high school.
CCS is awesome. My son has enjoyed so much of what the school has to offer. The teachers have been great, the office staff is always friendly and the principal is wonderful. We regret not having sent our son earlier. If we had, we might have been able to trade adequate, or mediocre school years for something special. Our son enjoys getting to school early and likes to stay late as well. Often the campus is filled with kids that seem just happy to be there. When your 16-year old jumps out of the car each morning happy to be there, you know it's right! We have seen so many kids smiling and embracing each other. My husband and I always laugh and say that it is the 'huggiest' campus we have ever been on. My son claims that the kids treat each other well and with a level of respect not common among teenagers. This is the first year in all his years of school he has made friends in multiple activities. In other words, kids still form groups around their favored activies, but their consideration and kindness for eachother makes them all feel accepted by all. A great administration, a kind and thoughtful student body and awesome coaches...who needs more than that?!
My son has only been there 2 years, and we are not members of the big Cornerstone church. I have never seen or heard of bullying incidents. He was accepted as if he had always gone there. I had some concerns at first about the grading and had a great parent teacher conference to resolve issues. The teachers really care about these kids. Alot of work in the honor classes but that is to be expected.
I unfortunately would have to say that if you are looking for a great private scholl for your child CCS is not the one. My child was enrolled there for almost 2 years before we had to pull her out due to constant bullying. After many times bringing this issue to the Principle nothnig was ever done because the students involved parent's were memmbers of the church and huge financial supporters of the school. The education was lacking as well. After moving our child to another school we found that they were way behind. So again if you are looking for a great private school for your child please reconsider CCS if you considering it. Unless you want to have you child's self esteem diminished, and have them under educated. On top of that all you have to pay for that!
CCS is an amazing school.If you are lookinf for a school where Christ and Education are key than attend CCS
As a teacher at Cornerstone Christian Schools, I have to say that the changes being made in all areas of the school are amazing. The school is definitely headed in the right direction. Specifically, fantastic changes are being made in the academic programs. The school will soon implement a version of S.T.E.M., and special education and technology coordinators have been hired. The special education program will serve minor learning disabilities for the first year, and then it will be reevaluated to see what else can be included. The boarding program will house only international students whose sole priority is a quality christian education. All in all, choosing Cornerstone is a fantastic choice for families. I am proud to be a member of the CCS family.
