Partner Mornings are unique to Cornerstone Schools. Five times per year, for two hours, members of the community join a class and connect with the students on a personal level. We believe that relationships with others outside of the the students' circle of influence provides awareness of what is possible in life. You won't believe the impact.

Want to be part of something special in Detroit? We're growing and would love to hear from you.
I’m excited about Cornerstone's future. I’m excited that you are joining us in this great mission.
For 25 years Cornerstone has delivered educational excellence. Parents, teachers, administrators, businesses, and hundreds of individual volunteers have contributed greatly, and formed a community, to build this nationally renowned Cornerstone school system — a gold standard for urban education. We are now looking ahead at the next 25 years.
We’ve set a bold goal to expand our footprint to serve 5,000 students in Detroit, and to deliver academic excellence and innovative programs that prepare students to live a good life—a fulfilling life.
In a competitive global economy, excellent academics have always been the price of entry to a successful career, but our Cornerstone students receive more than just classroom learning. Our innovative career pathways programs expose students to the real work world, and prepare them to launch successful careers. This ensures that every student, whether they follow a traditional four-year college degree track, or enter a skilled trade, is well prepared to support themselves, and their families, and help the next generation to do the same.
Our growth and vision is in step with the rebirth of Detroit. We want not only to keep, but also attract, families to our great city. Excellence, data-driven individualized learning, and engagement from the business community, have always been hallmarks of Cornerstone’s mission. We recognize that every child is unique, and focus on developing their character as well as nurture their natural gifts and abilities. We want as many children as possible here in Detroit, and ultimately, on the national stage, to receive learning and guidance that will prepare them to lead a great life.
