For over 34 years, Cornerstone Christian Academy has stood in the St. Clair community as a source of traditional, low cost, private education. Cornerstone provides a traditional, biblically based education system utilizing primarily A Beka and Bob Jones curriculum. We currently offer classes from kindergarten through 12th grade but intend to expand to a preschool for three year olds and four year olds this year. Our goal is not only to provide the very best in education, but also to produce young people who have a strong desire to serve the Lord with their lives.
Cornerstone Academy has been a part of the ministry of Mt. Zion Baptist Church since it began in the fall of 1982. Though the school is housed in the facilities of the church and has always been identified with the church, membership in the church is not required in order to attend Cornerstone.
Cornerstone seeks to educate the whole student (academic, emotional, social, and spiritual), serving in tandem with families.
Although we are a smaller school, we offer all core curriculum as well as many electives crucial to a complete education. Extra-curricular activities, which include girls volleyball and boys basketball, are used to teach teamwork, camaraderie, and discipline.
