2017 – 2018 PARTNER MORNING DATES
A Cornerstone Partner helps to fund the education of one or more students on an annual basis. Partners are invited to attend four Partner Morning events per school year to meet with the student(s) they support or they may send a representative. Meaningful relationships are established over time which transform the lives of the students and the Partners.
There is a crisis in delivering educational excellence to the children of Detroit. Of the 80,300 students enrolled in Detroit Public Schools K-8 programs, more than 84% are in failing schools. The majority are not grade-proficient in reading or math. Cornerstone Schools is a solution for families in a city where options are few.
We believe that all children, regardless of their financial situation, deserve a quality education. The annual cost to educate a Cornerstone student is $13,500. Based on financial need, Cornerstone families typically pay $2,000-$3,000 for tuition. In order to help bridge the gap, we ask our Partners to make an annual investment of $3,500 or more for each student that they support.
The generosity of our Partners makes it possible for the children of Cornerstone to receive an excellent education and to have a more abundant life. For more information on the Partner Program, please contact Janice Perzigian: 313-892-1860 ext. 287.
