Cornerstone Academy named ACCEL’s School of the Year

Congratulations to Cornerstone Academy for winning School of the Year at the annual leadership summit held this July. The school was recognized for outstanding leadership, student attendance, and academic performance.

“Cornerstone Academy is a phenomenal school that has been quietly and consistently raising its profile in the landscape of charter school education in Ohio,” said ACCEL Schools CEO Ron Packard who presented the awards on July 17.

During the pandemic, the Cornerstone leadership team maintained a large student body while opening a high school and expanding to a second campus location. Packard highlighted the school’s remarkable academic outcomes. “Despite serving nearly a thousand students, they have increased their PI year-over-year to just shy of 90 points.”

Recognizing the hard work and success of our schools and school leaders is an important tradition at ACCEL Schools. While schools across the country are still recovering from challenges related to the pandemic, we have seen a surge in success from schools serving historically underrecognized communities.
