Dear Community,

Welcome to Cornerstone Academy (CA). CA is a learning community which values high expectations for both academics and behavior. Cornerstone Academy staff embraces students, families, and communities to build and develop well-rounded individuals who are independent critical thinkers and intrinsically motivated to be life-long learners. We believe that all children can learn as we seek to make a difference in the lives of our students.

The teachers and staff at CA are committed to providing a quality education for all students in a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment. We are committed to ensuring that each child reaches his/her full potential.

Currently, Cornerstone has a student population of approximately 1,000 students in grades K-6 at our Walnut Street (Main) campus and grades 7-12 at our West Campus Road (High School) campus. CA is staffed with 70 certified members of the teaching staff and 20 classified/support staff. In addition to core academic subjects, students have the benefit of art, music, physical education, and computer science classes. Special services available to students include: intervention services, support for English Language Learners, literacy and mathematics support. School hours are 7:55 am – 3:30 pm for Grades K-6 and 7:45 am – 3:15 pm for Grades 7-12, Monday through Friday.

We encourage all parents/guardians to maintain regular communications with their child’s teachers and be actively involved in the school community. Checking the school calendar, website, and our Facebook page for events and activities will help keep you informed. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact the Main location office by calling (614) 775-0615 or the High School location by calling (614) 948-0560.
