Cornerstone Adventist Academy exists to partner with families and the church to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.
A Small Adventist School . . .
Cornerstone Adventist Academy opened its doors for the first time on August 15, 2016 with a class of 20 students. Cornerstone is currently a one-room school serving grades 1-8.
Sonja Eberhart is the teacher. She brings a wealth of teaching experience and comes most recently from Adventist Christian Academy in Raleigh, North Carolina.
There are many advantages to the multi-grade classroom. Some research indicates that students in a multi-grade classroom have higher reading and math achievement, better work-study skills, and better self-concepts than their peers in single-grade classrooms. As the school grows, plans include adding a Kindergarten program and additional classrooms.
Cornerstone Adventist Academy is a ministry of the University City Seventh-day Adventist Church. The school is governed by a board selected by the church and operates under the supervision of the Carolina Conference Office of Education.
