High School

High School

Classical Christian education nurtures the next generation of believers to live a life marked by a deep understanding of Christ, His universe, His people, and His way. And college readiness is an added blessing.  Students who graduate from classical Christian school (ACCS) are remarkably more prepared for college than students attending private or public schools.

Currently the high school students we serve are doing an independent study with guidance from our excellent staff and administration. A diploma from Cornerstone Academy is an honor that is worth pursuing.
