A business lecture by Simon Sinkek illuminates an essential feature in the success or failure of varying organizations: many organizations fail by beginning with an emphasis on WHAT they do. This is eventually fleshed out into a business plan of HOW, followed lastly by a mission statement attempting to tie it all together.
However, successful organizations begin by asking a far more fundamental question: WHY? Why do we do what we do or make what we make? When organizations talk about what they believe and about why they exist, they attract others who also believe the same thing. This same principle is wisely applied to Christian ministries, such as ours.
The fundamental WHY of Cornerstone is to partner with parents who, like us, place primary importance on guiding children to have a biblical worldview.
Increasingly, churches and Christian schools are coming into contact with parenting philosophies that mirror the world’s thinking more than biblical thinking. This presents a challenge to all in ministry, as we try to develop true biblical thinking in children.
When school and home work together to teach children within a biblical framework that withstands culture, God is pleased and glorified.
God is at the center of our mission at Cornerstone. He is the HOW and WHAT of our organization. We invite you to partner with us; to commit yourself and your child’s education to the central mission of Christ. We welcome you to support us in prayer and become part of our caring and supportive school family.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
Proverbs 9:10 NIV
From the beginning, we haven’t accepted only the top testing tier of students into our school. However, due to small class sizes, exceptional teachers, and supportive parents all working around a foundation of Christ, our students perform exceptionally well. This is proven in our standardized test scores and in the fact that students who stay until graduation are accepted into the most challenging local high schools AND are successful there.
Knowing that people do not buy WHAT organizations do, but rather, WHY they do it, we invite you to “buy into” Cornerstone Christian School as we seek to educate our children for life ahead. We believe that the Lord is essential in our children’s education, and are thankful for the blessing that we can adore Christ openly here. We trust that God will combine our work here with your work at home and turn it into something amazing in our children’s lives, for HIS GLORY!
We BELIEVE in the mission of our school:
To prepare children to glorify God as ambassadors of Jesus Christ by providing a biblical foundation, Christian values, relationships, and a challenging academic program.
