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.
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”.
My name is Katelyn Meenach and I am a senior at CCA. To be completely transparent, I went to Greeley because I didn’t have the money for Uganda after I paid for a mission trip to the Philippines in January.
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.
The path to teaching Second Grade at CCA was not a direct route for Beth Floyd. Growing up in Kentucky, with a strong family, she can look back now and say that something in her always wanted to teach.
If you’ve ever wandered into Mr. Fetterly’s classroom in the high school wing of our building you’ve discovered that he’s a man of quotes. World leaders, thinkers and famous poets words end up on the whiteboard behind Mr. Fetterly’s desk.
With great anticipation and joy we broke ground this summer on our $4 million Cornerstone Christian Academy facility improvement. While the addition of the gym is the most significant, there are lots of additions about which we're excited.
This fall our sixth and seventh grade students got to adventure and explore Colorado as they do each September and October. One of the things that designates Cornerstone Christian Academy is the effort taken to build community and camaraderie within our classes.
What makes teaching at CCA unique for Nancy Moodie? Discipleship. It is not just teaching the Bible but allowing our students to see God’s story played out in the lives of their teachers and the people around them.
Back to school is a memory. Students have pumped academic iron for over a month and it’s time for a little coaching. Whether it’s memorizing spelling words and Bible verses or understanding honors courses, mastering study habits can make a big difference in grades.
At Cornerstone Christian Academy, we feel giving to others in service is an integral part of education, faith, and learning to love and follow Christ. We are intentional about offering opportunities for students in all grades to engage and serve our surrounding, local community.
The volleyball program at Cornerstone has astounded me each year I have been a part of it. My Freshman year I was a new student at CCA, and volleyball was one of the biggest things to which I looked forward.
This season my cleats will hit the grass one last time as I walk off the field as a senior. I expect this to be one of the most emotional moments of my high school career because of what playing football at CCA has meant to me.
My name is Katelyn Meenach and I am a Junior at CCA. Throughout my education, my family has always encouraged me to take school one year at a time, giving me room to attend wherever I choose, and since sixth grade I’ve always chosen to come back to CCA, making this my fifth year here.
Did you know Cornerstone Christian Academy has three goals for each student? These goals are to: 1) Encourage a genuine faith, 2) Educate through Academics, Athletics & Arts, and to 3) Equip for Service.
It’s hard to imagine Cornerstone Christian Academy without Leah Mangel. It’s probably because there’s never been a CCA without her. Leah’s oldest son, Randy, was in the first Kindergarten class. Leah is part of the heart-beat that’s allowed the body of CCA to thrive for over twenty years.
