Cornerstone celebrated the grand opening of Floyd Dining Hall last month following the successful culmination of a year-long campaign to raise the necessary funds to secure the campus (nearly 11 acres) and take care of needed campus renovations. Those renovations include a new media center, art studio, music studio, rehearsal rooms, dining hall/auditorium, commons area, video/editing lab, and additional classrooms. Nestled in Peachtree Corners, Cornerstone serves students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Cornerstone draws students from more than 20 neighboring zip codes. Highly experienced, certified educators provide a nurturing but challenging environment where each child is lovingly accepted and valued as an individual.

 At Cornerstone, Biblical worldview integration connects a Biblical framework to all aspects of life that leads to understanding and wisdom. The Bible is not just taught in Bible class. Cornerstone takes a holistic approach to education that includes everything from technology classes to competitive sports programs, to providing students ample opportunities to serve in the local community as well as weekly chapel services and discipleship groups. Cornerstone firmly believes that the total learning experience must be rooted not just in a rigorous math and science curriculum, but also in the development of writing skills and analytical thinking.
