How to Help, Not Hinder Your Child’s Independence

How to Help, Not Hinder Your Child’s Independence

As I sat across the table from two loving parents at a Parent-Teacher Conference, I was amazed to see the frustration on both of their faces. We were discussing how their son was struggling to complete tasks at home on his own, needing constant reminders to complete his work, and having trouble figuring out how to solve a problem on his own.

Counting the Costs: Kids and Technology

Counting the Costs: Kids and Technology

The data is in…and it is NOT GOOD! Would any of us as parents begin supplying tobacco to our middle school children, or drugs and alcohol to our high schoolers? Ofcourse not, they are not mature enough to assess the addictive nature of the products, not to mention the health risks. What I see in many of my students is a “live in the moment” approach to life; “Count the costs…no way, that’s for grown ups”.

Private Music Lessons

Private Music Lessons

We believe in the importance of family life, and we want to preserve as much time for family and other activities as possible after school hours. We know how busy families are and would like to take one thing off their plate, so we offer private lessons during the school day.

Importance of Music Education
Research shows learning a musical instrument enhances cognitive function, increases emotional awareness, and develops critical thinking and problem solving skills. It also develops life-long skills such as perseverance, focus, and confidence. Our instructors are more than just music teachers - they are mentors to their students and committed to their holistic education and well-being.

Nuts & Bolts

God's Story at Cornerstone Christian Academy

God's Story at Cornerstone Christian Academy

Twenty-one years ago Cornerstone Christian Academy was founded by a group of parents seeking a strong independent Christian school in a community that didn’t have one. From the very beginning the endeavor was a walk of faith. In this blog we’d like to share with you the amazing ways Jesus Christ began and has carried on this school. It’s here you’ll learn about our history as we share our story. Our story that is all His.
