Mission - Cornerstone Schools

Our mission is built on three pillars that serve as the foundation for everything we do.

Academics

We offer a rigorous academic curriculum that prepares students for career and college. Learning takes place in a clean, safe and nurturing environment where our passionate faculty and staff help guide our students along every step of their educational journey.

Character

Our well-rounded education emphasizes character development and striving for excellence in all things. We focus on ten attributes that constitute excellent character and build them into our lessons throughout the year. This consistent and continual focus helps our students grow into outstanding learners, employees, family members, team members, entrepreneurs, visionaries and leaders.

Career

We expose students to career options from an early age to help them envision their future. We further inspire them with engaging opportunities such as high school internships, mentorships and learning experiences with top companies from Detroit and around the world. This is where goals and dreams blossom.
