Studies have found the following key benefits of our unique University-Model® school:
- Influence their children.
- Helps students learn time management skills and become independent learners.
- Involves parents in their child’s education all the way through high school.
- Provides students with a quality, college-prep education.
- Offers a flexible university-type schedule.
- Supports a teacher-parent partnership.
And our own parents echo those findings:
Cornerstone works for me because it works for its students and parents. Since we started at Cornerstone, it has always been evident that all members of the staff have a passion for providing an environment where students can thrive, explore their God-given talents, and realize their potential.
This commitment extends beyond the classroom and into the home through solid parent-teacher communication and activities like Parent Universities aimed at keeping us informed of important societal issues impacting the lives of our children.
Students also benefit from our small class sizes and individual attention from staff:
...the people here actually care about kids. Most other schools don’t love students as much as Cornerstone does. The staff knows what it’s like to be a kid from their own childhood. When somebody is feeling down, anybody tries to cheer them up, whether it is a teacher, an assistant, or even just a friend.
But at Cornerstone, everyone is your family. But most of all, Cornerstone helps everybody. We are making a difference, one small step at a time. We are all in this and we won’t fail. We love God and we love others.

So the survey results further validated what we hear from our parents and students each day. While our model is different, it is that difference, the Cornerstone Difference, that families love.
