Cornerstone’s philosophy of education is expressed in our Mission and Vision statements:
Our Mission: To work with like-minded Christian parents to educate our children with love and mercy in a godly environment that emphasizes a rigorously biblical curriculum, Christian character training, and college preparatory academics.
Our Vision: To produce well-rounded, self-governed leaders who apply the Word of God to every area of thought and life.
Christianity is positive and works at overcoming evil by doing good, by building and doing God’s work in God’s way and in the power of his might. Hence, Cornerstone has taken its name from 1 Corinthians 3:11 – “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
Our goal is to raise up strong Christian leaders who will proclaim God’s word to this generation and apply it faithfully to every sphere of life. We are training Christian young people to be leaders in the home, the church, civil government, education, business, industry, science and the arts. We want conquerors and builders who will seek God’s glory in all they do.
To this end, we teach God’s word (sound doctrine) and its requirements for righteousness (character training). We presuppose at every point the truth of Scripture and its power to change men’s hearts. We try to approach every subject, every issue, from a consistently biblical worldview.
We are an equipping and discipling school, not an outreach school. Our primary calling is to equip the children of believers. We are interested in more than the acquisiton of knowledge and of academic skills. The biblical model of education stresses mastery of living in terms of God’s word. We hope to teach our students to apply what they have learned, in light of Scripture, to every situation in life. We also encourage each student to rely on God for growth in both personal character and academic abilities. The end result is that students are well prepared for their future.
