Cornerstone Academy uses an admissions procedure that resembles the application process used in many other private schools and colleges. The current procedure allows the school to more accurately identify and admit students from families who have clearly expressed convictions that are similar to the school’s regarding the education of children.
The selection and make-up of the school’s student body is second only to staff selection in the impact it has upon the school’s mission. The family-like atmosphere Cornerstone Academy seeks to foster and currently enjoys is due in great measure to the similarity of biblical convictions and principles taught and lived out in many of the homes of our students. As the Lord blesses us with growth and change, we want to do all we can to maintain and build up that atmosphere.
A student’s academic achievements will be considered in the application process only for grade placement, not as the primary determinant for acceptance. Again, we are seeking to enroll those students who, because of their own families’ priorities, will most benefit from what Cornerstone Academy can offer them. Admission will be at the sole discretion of the school board or its representative.
