Student and Spiritual Life Department works alongside the students and families with encouragement and support in several areas of CCS life. They provide opportunities for service to the school and community, spiritual development, family growth, counseling, mentoring, leadership training, retreats, and mission trips. Their goal is to see each student and family realize their identity in Christ by exploring God’s calling, asking next level questions regarding your faith in Christ, cultivating Godly leadership qualities, and helping students be able to engage their world in a way that influences it for Christ.
Students are Asking: “Who am I?"
"Where do I belong?"
"Do I and my choices matter?
Cornerstone Christian Schools mission is to move students from a simple understanding of the love of God to a Holy Spirit-filled, intense and abiding personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Nurturing this relationship is done through sharing and discussing the relevance of Scriptures as it relates to both the subject content and daily life.
A focus on the spiritual, mental, physical, and social development assists students in discovering their unique gifts and talents for use in God’s plan for their lives. We believe the students will be led to an understanding of the expectations and responsibilities of a life committed to Christ in their school environment, homes, and community.
