Admissions Policy

Cornerstone Academy uses an admissions procedure that resembles the application process used in many other private schools and colleges. The current procedure allows the school to more accurately identify and admit students from families who have clearly expressed convictions that are similar to the school’s regarding the education of children.

The selection and make-up of the school’s student body is second only to staff selection in the impact it has upon the school’s mission. The family-like atmosphere Cornerstone Academy seeks to foster and currently enjoys is due in great measure to the similarity of biblical convictions and principles taught and lived out in many of the homes of our students. As the Lord blesses us with growth and change, we want to do all we can to maintain and build up that atmosphere.

A student’s academic achievements will be considered in the application process only for grade placement, not as the primary determinant for acceptance. Again, we are seeking to enroll those students who, because of their own families’ priorities, will most benefit from what Cornerstone Academy can offer them. Admission will be at the sole discretion of the school board or its representative.

Process

 
Step 1

Submit the completed online application with the application fee ($100).  A completed application will include these items:

  • Admission Application (with parent signatures)
  • Application Fee (non-refundable)
  • Copy of Birth Certificate (can be scanned and uploaded)
  • Copy of Achievement Test scores (can be scanned and uploaded)
  • Signed Statement of Faith
  • Signed Cooperation Agreement
  • Emailed Request for Copies of Records (1st - 12th Grades)
  • Parent Worldview Survey
  • Family Conference Questionnaire
  • Student Worldview Survey (6th - 12th Grades)
Step 2

When we have received the completed Admission Application and the Application Fee has been paid, admission test for the students entering grades K5 - 11 will be scheduled for the next available testing date.  This can be scheduled while the other items in Step 1 are being completed.

Step 3

When all materials have been received in the Admissions office, we will contact you within ten days to arrange a family admission interview.

Step 4

Once the admission decision has been made, the family will receive an acceptance letter within ten (10) business days upon completion of all admission steps but no sooner than March 1st.  The next steps for the family is to reserve a seat for the student.
