At Cornerstone Academy, our highest goal is to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding, who reason persuasively and articulate precisely, who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of Scripture and who do so with eagerness, in joyful submission to God. We also aspire to graduate students who recognize cultural influences as distinct from Biblical and who are well-prepared in all situations, possessing both information and knowledge of how to use it for God's glory and kingdom. We desire that they be socially graceful and spiritually gracious, strive for excellence in all things, and be equipped with and understanding the tools of life-long learning.

Our Curriculum

Cornerstone Academy is a classical Christian school. We have returned to the time honored, proven method of education used for centuries with great success, which gives students the tools for learning and systematic thinking. We, therefore, emphasize the basics: Bible, reading, writing, arithmetic, English grammar, Latin and logic. We also teach science, worldviews, rhetoric, and more. A Physical Education program for each grade is offered as well, and the State of Florida requires one PE credit in 9th-12 grades for graduation. Additionally, all Grammar School students will have recess every school day and PE once a week.

After very careful review of all the options available, we have chosen the very best curriculum for each of the subject areas and for each grade. Attention was given to continuity between grades and between the Grammar and Secondary schools. In line with the educational philosophy of classical Christian schools, curriculum has been chosen that utilizes the tools of each educational phase. We are training students to be thinkers and to be able to reason well from biblical principles in every area.
