Thirty-four 8th grade students from the Madison-Carver Academy, along with students from Cornerstone Jefferson-Douglass Academy, Washington-Parks Academy and Lincoln-King Academy took their annual Cornerstone end-of-the-year trip in early June.
The focus of this year’s trip was college readiness and African-American history. Students visited historically black colleges located in the heart of Atlanta, including Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College and Spelman College.
Students also visited Montgomery, Alabama, touring the Martin Luther King Visitor Center and Birth Home, the EJI National Memorial for Peace and Justice, and the Rosa Parks Museum.
This is another way we educate our students beyond the classroom, helping them to develop the thoughts and skills they need to lead a fulfilling life.
