Parents are required to attend an on-campus Information Meeting about Cornerstone. These meetings are held monthly, and parents will receive their admission packet at this meeting. Click here for dates and times. Reservations are not required.
If, after reviewing the school material and praying about their decision parents are still interested in the academy, they should complete the application and return it to the school office. The actual date (postmark if mailed) when the application is received will be used in determining course registration priorities over other new students. There is a $200 per student application/placement fee required at this time. This fee covers the admissions process and is non-refundable. With the application, parents are to supply copies of any school grade reports and/or achievement testing (within the last two years). References from this application will be contacted.

Academic courses offered at Cornerstone Prep will require placement testing for students. This is done so that we can more appropriately place students in each course. Also, students entering into 11th or 12th grade need to submit a copy of their most recent research paper. Other tests might also be required later, such as foreign language testing. The decision about what placement tests are needed, due to the transcripts/testing results received with the application, is left to the discretion of the Admissions Committee.
The purpose of this meeting is to make certain that each family has had a personal opportunity to have all of their questions about Cornerstone Prep answered and to make certain that Cornerstone is the appropriate school for their children. An individual on the Admissions Committee will call to arrange an interview.
Once the interview process has been completed, each student or family will receive a letter from the Admissions Committee. This letter will indicate the Admissions Committee decision. If accepted, there will be a registration packet that the family will use to indicate their intent to attend Cornerstone Prep.
The school’s registrar will forward a registration packet to accepted students and be available to help with course registration questions. If a child is a high school student, then the academic advisor will need to meet with the family to discuss various diploma options for graduation. High school grade report copies or transcripts are required at this meeting.
