Uniforms

Cornerstone Academy has a school uniform that the students wear to school and on field trips. This is beneficial for many reasons including the following:

  • Provides a sense of community
  • Eliminates disagreements on clothing choices
  • Students’ mindset is focused on school
  • Reduces comparison of clothing and status
  • Presents considerable financial savings.
