Student Life

Beyond the classroom, our students have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of school-sponsored activities.

Extracurricular Programs

Our academic program is further enriched by extracurricular programs and experiences.

Tutoring is available before and after school. Several teachers offer tutoring during lunch as well. Times vary according to tutor, grade level, and subject. Small fees may apply.

Clubs offer our students the opportunity to expand the learning experience beyond the classroom. Cornerstone clubs offer both academic and social growth opportunities. Currently, we offer exciting opportunities that include Run Club, Drama Club, National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, Chess Club, Recycle Club, Girls with a Purpose. We also offer a well-rounded, competitive instrumental music program.

Cornerstone Wolves in grades 5-8 have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. We offer Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, and Basketball. These sports take place after school and on the weekends. Small fees may apply.

Field trips offer a chance for students to learn outside the classroom. Field trips are provided over the course of the school year. Our youngest students often travel to local apple and pumpkin farms in the fall, while older students explore the State House and Supreme Court, local High Schools and Universities. The Spring is filled with trips to COSI, the Columbus Zoo, and local metro parks. Information regarding field trips, times, and locations will be provided to the parents by classroom teachers and administration.

Cornerstone Academy offers travel abroad to students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade in alternating years. Students have the opportunity to visit places like London, England and Rome, Italy. We also offer an opportunity for students to participate in a three-day, two-night camp experience at Camp Nuhop, Ohio’s foremost Outdoor Education Center located in the Mohican State Park area.
