Admissions

Policy

  1. Students of any background or belief are welcome to apply to Cornerstone Community School. However, parents must realize that our school is clearly based on Christian principles which are woven into the fabric of the school,  and they must be willing to support their children in this type of education. Please see our innovative curriculum for further details.
  2. Children applying for Pre-K should be 4 years old by September 1 of the year they are seeking enrollment. Children applying for Kindergarten should be five years old by September 1 of the year for which they are seeking enrollment. First graders should be six by September 1, etc. However, individual enrollment decisions are made after assessing children.
  3. The school office maintains applications and their submission dates. When class space is limited by facilities or staff, students who have submitted the earliest applications will be considered first. All students will be notified of acceptance as soon as possible. Students who are currently enrolled and their siblings will be given first priority in enrollment for subsequent years.
  4. If a student is transferring from another school to Cornerstone Community School, all records must be received and reviewed before the admissions application is complete. Admission may be denied if any information is falsified or if records indicate the student has needs which the school cannot meet.

In summary, when considering whether or not a student will be admitted, we look at the following areas:

  • Is there a match between the parents and CCS regarding our educational philosophy and parental involvement policy?
  • Do the parents have an understanding of our biblical worldview?
  • Do we have the space for additional students?
  • Can we meet any needs which the student may have?
  • Does the student compliment the existing class structure?

We recognize students are gifted in a variety of ways, just as the body of Christ is made up of individuals with varying gifts. We want our school to reflect the same diversity found in the Body of Christ. Cornerstone Community School is a place where students with academic gifts as well as gifts in other areas have the opportunity to obtain a Christian education in a private school. It is our desire that every student be given ample opportunity to excel in the development of their God-given abilities.
