Through a partnership of family, school, and community, Cornerstone provides a Christ-centered, nurturing, and academically rigorous education to the children of Washington DC, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to become leaders who serve others in light of Christ and His Truth.
At Cornerstone, we believe each child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. We begin by integrating faith and learning through an outstanding academic program. During our extended school year, we emphasize basic skills in the core subjects of language arts and math. In addition, our curriculum focuses on critical thinking to produce young people who can make wise decisions throughout life. All Cornerstone students study a foreign language, and class work is reinforced with mandatory homework. Our parents also commit to being involved, both through helping students at home and volunteering at the school.
With its Christ-centered focus, Cornerstone provides the tools necessary to develop strong character. God’s truth is infused throughout the curriculum and is reinforced in chapel each week, where the students learn important lessons from the Scriptures. These lessons are put into practice in the classroom, on the playground, and in student service projects. Each morning, the school comes alive as students belt out Gospel songs during praise and worship time. Cornerstone’s combination of academic excellence and moral teaching provides the best possible environment for children to grow into well-educated and responsible men and women.
