Nestled in beautiful Peachtree Corners, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta), Cornerstone Christian Academy (K-8) is the perfect combination of rigor and love. At Cornerstone, there is an evident bridge between writing and reading, with a focus on reading strategies that develop a mastery of decoding and comprehension skills. By using a systematic approach to phonics, students develop word knowledge which moves them toward conventional spelling. Writing specialists enrich the curriculum by teaching the craft of writing and then help students move to more technical writing in all subject areas. Analytically, Cornerstone students love STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), thinking outside the box and using their God-given talents to solve real world problems. Biblical worldview integration throughout the curriculum connects a Biblical framework to all aspects of life that leads to understanding and wisdom.

Cornerstone's approach is holistic and includes applicable technology instruction, competitive sports programs and multiple fine arts opportunities. Grade levels intentionally serve in our communities and experience all that is offered through a wide range of field trips. Weekly Chapel services and Bible studies are favorite times of the week for students and faculty alike. In the Middle School, our House system is a distinctive program that sets us apart from our peers. The House system helps to foster community throughout all Middle School grade levels by creating opportunities for leadership, service, spiritual development, fellowship, and engaging students through friendly competition.
