Why We're Great >
I love this place. This place is home...It's a very uncertain time, but what is certain is God and the love that our teachers give to the kids. You can't replace that.
education then & now
In a famous 1791 educational policy paper, Dr. Benjamin Rush (a signer of the Declaration of Independence, ratified the Constitution, and served in the presidential administrations of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison) offered numerous reasons why the Bible should never be taken out of American schools. He warned, "In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, [if we remove the Bible from schools] I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them." Noah Webster (one of the first founders to call for the Constitutional Convention and was responsible for specific wording in the Constitution), in a textbook he authored for public schools, told students, "All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible".
It's not hard to see that our educational systems in America are a far cry from where we started. Core American values, Biblical truths, and parental involvement are virtually non-existent and while the student is left unprepared for life and success in many ways, they are definitely receiving their fair share of partisan propaganda. This is not the public education our founders dreamed of, but Cornerstone Christian School holds true to the Biblical principles, values, and truths our founders made central to the foundation of our great country.
a labor of love,
investing in our future.
Cornerstone Christian School seeks to be a beacon of hope in a world that desperately needs the truth and love of Jesus Christ. As a teacher at CCS, we desire our students to become all that God has uniquely wired them to be (Psalm 139:14, 1 Peter 2:9, 1 Peter 4:10-11), so that they can make the impact for the kingdom that He planned for them (Ephesians 2:10) before they were knitted in their mother's womb (Jeremiah 1:4-5). Teaching at CCS is a labor of love and provides a unique opportunity to weave biblical truth and rigorous academic expectation in each classroom. At Cornerstone, teachers have the privilege of fostering both academic and spiritual growth in our students. In addition, we have a strong family oriented culture as we come along-side our student's parents and families who take an active role in their children's education and the unmatched love and support they give back to our teachers. Being a teacher at Cornerstone is a labor of love, knowing that each student's success at Cornerstone is an investment in the future of our families, communities, nation, and world.
A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold...The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life...Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:1,4,6
