Application for admission

Why Should you Choose CCS for your Child's education?

*Excellence is a key element of our educational philosophy with the recognition that all students are individually important to God and are endowed with a unique set of gifts that are to be developed.  The discipline and edification that is necessary for the development of Christ-like character will be integrated into every part of each student’s school day. 

* The curriculum CCS has chosen will prepare students spiritually, emotionally and academically. You will not have to worry about your child being taught things that are in opposition to God’s Word. Your child will be taught history, science, social studies, language arts, etc. using sound texts that don’t change facts to fit an agenda.

* Teachers at CCS feel called by God to teach and disciple young people. They do not look at this ministry as “just a job”.  That means your child will be cared for and taught well.  CCS’s goal is to send out well educated, Jesus loving disciples into the world.

* At CCS students will be held to a high standard of behavior making CCS a place where students can learn without distractions or fear.     

* You get to choose length of school day. All core subjects will be taught by our highly qualified staff in the mornings. This schedule leaves the afternoon open to be spent either pursuing activities of your choosing or staying at school and participating in our enrichment program.  Our after-school program is not babysitting but rather a time to explore new things or enhance what is being studied in the morning.        

* Smaller class size. Classes will be limited to 12-15 students per teacher. Smaller class size means more individualized instruction.                         

* Mixed age groups. Students become leaders when helping younger kids. Friendships are not based on age but on mutual interests. Students learn from one another. Respect for all ages is fostered.

We are excited to offer this option to the students of Lakeview! We believe God has called us to this ministry and look forward to all He is going to do in and through CCS. We would love for you and your student to join us!

General Information

We are excited to announce we have hired two teachers! Leslie Arcularius and Susie Springer will be joining the CCS team. Leslie’s experience includes being a Title 1 Teacher’s Aide, a Librarian, 5th Grade Teacher, and a Substitute Teacher. Leslie studied at the University of Nevada Reno and Eastern Oregon University. Leslie is kind-hearted and gets to know her students so she can teach them in the way they learn best. Susie’s experience includes teaching summer school for Spanish-speaking students, ESD tutor, Community Education Teacher with Treasure Valley CC, and many years of homeschooling her children. Susie studied at Western Oregon University, Central CC, and Everett CC. She is bi-lingual and has taught My Father’s World Curriculum.

Work is currently being done in our classrooms.  Our youth center is being spruced up and will house two  classrooms. The yard will be fenced, and playground equipment installed. 

Our class schedule will mirror the same days as the public school, but with a shorter day if you choose.  Classes are Monday through Thursday for all grades K-8. The day will begin at 8:00 a.m. for all students but dismissal time will vary. Kindergarten will be released at noon and 1st-8th  at 12:30 p.m. Small class sizes and focusing on meaningful work will make a shortened day very successful. A shortened day allows students to pursue other activities and gives them more time to be with their families. However, if you need or desire an extended day, we will also offer that.

The after-school enrichment program will run Monday – Thursday from 12:30 until 3:30 p.m. Our vision for this program is to provide care for an extended time for those parents who need it while offering various educational and just-for-fun opportunities. Opportunities such as rest (if needed), music, art, outdoor and indoor games, hiking, nature walks, tutoring, cooking, etc. The cost for the program will be paid monthly (Sept. to May) at $175 and cannot be pro-rated for any absences. Homeschool students are also invited to participate in the program.

Philosophy of Education 

Cornerstone Christian School’s philosophy of Christian education is based on the truth that God’s Word is the standard for all truth, and that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. God created and sustains all things. Education in preschool starts with basic skills grounded in an appreciation of God and His Creation combined with social skills built around Christian love and respect. The elementary and high school curriculum contains the Biblical foundation of God’s truth and the understanding of the differences between a secular and Christian worldview.


All policies of the school, philosophies of subjects, curriculum materials, and teaching methods shall conform to Cornerstone Christian School's philosophy of Christian education. The Bible is the foundation and motivating force for all curricula. Cornerstone Christian School’s primary goals and objectives include:
 

  • To love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind (Matt. 22:37)

  • To glorify God in all that we do (1 Cor. 10:31)

  • To promote the maturity of students in doctrine and practice (Eph. 6:4, Col. 1:28-29)

  • To train students in Christian service and ministry (2 Tim. 2:2)

  • To prepare students to be critical thinkers and lifelong learners.

 

The Word of God teaches that parents are responsible for their children's education (Deut. 6:4-7; Eph. 6:4).  Cornerstone Christian School desires to be a trusted partner in this process.  We are dedicated to providing an environment that supports Christian values and makes provisions for the individual differences of each child, challenging them to their fullest potential in Christ.

 

Excellence is a key element of our educational philosophy with the recognition that all students are individually important to God and are endowed with a unique set of gifts that are to be developed.  The discipline and edification that is necessary for the development of Christ-like character will be integrated into every part of each student’s school day.  Students are expected to take responsibility for their conduct, choices, and actions and apply the knowledge they acquire in all areas of their lives.
