At Cornerstone Christian Academy, we have adopted an admissions policy that opens the school to families who are like-minded spiritually, who are supportive of our philosophy, objectives, and standards of education, and whose children meet our enrollment standards. Our purpose is to serve families who desire not simply a private education, but a distinctively Christian education for their children.
Before applying for admission to our school, families are required to read our Student-Parent Handbook (see links below) which introduces many of the school’s policies, procedures, and expectations for both parents and students.
The first several pages of the Handbook explain our religious purpose, mission, and beliefs. Cornerstone Christian Academy unashamedly believes, teaches, and practices a literal interpretation of the Word of God. If a family does not agree with our religious mission and beliefs, enrolling their child in our school will likely cause him or her confusion. For example, if a question regarding biblical lifestyles arises in chapel or the classroom, the teacher will answer from a biblical viewpoint consistent with our Mission and Statement of Faith. If the family’s beliefs and lifestyle choices are not in agreement with our doctrinal stance, that answer will likely create conflict in the child’s heart and mind. This internal conflict could drive a wedge between parent and child, cause the child to negatively judge his or her parent, or force the child to choose between our teaching and what he or she learns at home. We respect every family’s desire to place their child in the best possible learning environment, but if the family is not in full agreement with our doctrinal positions, it will be best for all concerned if the family chooses not to enroll their child at our school.
Biblical principles are integrated into every subject taught at our school. Our staff is committed not only to academic excellence, but also to teaching students how to apply the truths of God’s Word to every aspect of life. If a family is in agreement with the teachings of God’s Word, our school will complement the beliefs and ideals your child is taught at home. We look forward to partnering with families to educate their child in God’s truth.
After careful review of the Student-Parent Handbook, if a family would like to continue the admissions process, they should submit a signed Handbook Agreement along with a completed Family Profile (one per family), Enrollment Application (one per student) for the appropriate grade level and supporting documents.
