Adams-Young Academy - Cornerstone Schools

About Adams-Young Academy

Cornerstone Adams-Young Academy serves grades K-5 in the former John King Elementary School that we have fully renovated so that this historic building is once again serving Detroit students. Our middle school (grades 6-8) is housed one block away in a building shared with Cornerstone Lincoln-King High School. This building has also been recently updated so that the middle school and high school have separate entrances and learning spaces. Highly-qualified, passionate faculty and staff create challenging, relevant, and meaningful lessons, while caring for the whole child.

Cornerstone utilizes technology to ensure students are competitive, and have many opportunities to master material at their own pace. We provide an adaptable environment where teachers and staff can personally interact with students and support individualized learning. Building good character is infused in everything we do. We expose students to career options from an early age, so they may explore occupations that align with their purpose and passion. Academic achievement, excellent character, and career awareness provide our students with the tools they will need to pursue complete lives.

Adams-Young has these wonderful programs and more:

  • National Junior Honor Society
  • Principal’s Club for K-8 students who demonstrate excellence in academics, leadership and behavior
  • Chess club
  • Choir
  • Dance 
  • After school activities
