What Is the Cornerstone Culture?
The definition of culture is: A way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization.
Culture is what makes us uniquely Cornerstone and it starts with our mission statement:
Partnering with parents to build within their children a firm foundation of academic excellence and Christian discipleship.
If we had a picture that depicted our mission statement it would be this; a stack of subject books with the Holy Bible on top. Jesus is the cornerstone of all we do here and it is His guidance, leadership, and grace that makes us so distinct.
We are distinct in many different ways. Our University-Model® sets us apart from all other schools in our community. Our fully accredited, university schedule allows our teachers and parents to work together as we strive for academic excellence in each of our students. Our model let’s us be creative as we collaborate with our families to create the most beneficial school experience that prepares students for the future while allowing students more time to pursue their passions in a safe and loving community.
The unity that exists here is also what makes us distinct. Everyone here, administrators, teachers, assistants, coaches, cleaning, other staff, and every parent is committed to one purpose: The student! It’s the love for the student that creates our culture. We all have the same common goal and that is to see every student leave this place with the knowledge and leadership skills necessary to succeed in college and with a biblical worldview that creates champions of God’s Word. Every student fulfilling their purpose by cultivating a real relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our calling here at Cornerstone is to see that every student is placed in a position to never have an excuse. In all that we do from rules to retreats, curriculum to chapel, and homework to home runs we must be intentional. We are fighting an evil adversary for these precious souls, and we have a great responsibility, but we serve an amazing God! We are distinct because we have chosen to be rooted in Jesus Christ and in Him, all things are possible!
