Highest-Performing Community Schools

Our experience with Cornerstone Academy has been both excellent and exciting. With a top-notch curriculum and academic rigor coupled with expanding student extracurriculars and structure, we feel very fortunate to be surrounded by a team of supportive and compassionate teachers, staff, and parents. In addition, we continue to be impressed with the level of concern and care provided to our family, in an effort to build a community that is working together for the betterment of students, both academically as well as personally.

❄️☃️❄️🐺❄️☃️❄️The local weather forecast is predicting slippery conditions for the Thursday morning commute. Safety of our students and staff is a priority when making the decision to close for the day. IF WE WERE TO CLOSE, there are a variety of methods to get notified.

IN THE EVENT of inclement weather, Cornerstone Academy will announce school cancellations via the major TV news channels: 4, 6, 10 and 28, as well as all Clear Channel radio stations: 92.3, 93.3, 97.9, 105.7, 106.7, 610WTVN and 1230AM. Please look/listen for CORNERSTONE ACADEMY, not Columbus or Westerville City Schools. We make our decisions independently from these districts which will be made no later than 6:00 am. We do not delay school or release early for inclement weather.

If your child rides a bus to school and the resident district that provides their transportation is on a delay, YOUR CHILD’S BUS WILL BE AFFECTED according to the publicized information on that district. In the event of inclement weather, parents are always welcome to pick up their children early if they wish.

If school is cancelled due to weather, OASIS will also be closed.
