About Us

Our Mission

Cornerstone Christian Academy is dedicated to assisting Christian parents in educating the whole child, nurturing grace-filled relationships, and cultivating a biblical worldview.

Our Philosophy

Cornerstone Christian Academy takes a Christ-centered, whole-child approach to children’s education, partnering with families to nurture grace-filled relationships and a Biblical worldview. We draw from the best of all educational approaches, including outdoor and hands-on experiences, regular field trips, a family-integrated focus, and target-based learning in all subject areas. Throughout each day, we encourage our students to use their spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual gifts for God and His Kingdom—and we seek to model this for our students, as well. Learn more about the Cornerstone Model here.

Our Location

Cornerstone Christian Academy currently leases space from Providence Reformed Presbyterian Church, 9124 Sappington Rd., in Crestwood (see map below). As we grow, we plan to move to a larger facility, while still remaining close to our current location.

Our Approach to Learning

Cornerstone Christian Academy is an interdenominational school founded on a unique educational model that includes a four-day week for students (with optional Monday care), a family-integrated focus, target-based learning, affordable tuition, and a thoroughly Christ-centered approach to teaching and learning (see "What We Believe" here.) 

Our Students

CCA is enrolling pre-K through 4th grade students for the 2024-2025 academic year, and will be adding one grade per year until reaching 8th grade. 

Our Story

Founding board member and veteran teacher Anna More began thinking of starting a school when she and her husband were searching for a Christian preschool for their son. Realizing that there were limited options for affordable, Christ-centered education in the area, Anna shared her desire to create this environment with a long-time friend and mentor, Brookie Moore. Brookie also recognized the need for this type of school, and together, they began the process of forming a board of like-minded individuals, including Noah Brink (author of Jesus Above School) and Lisa Grove. Cornerstone Christian Academy was established in August 2023, and has quickly become a school filled with joy, reflecting the hearts of a board and teachers who love children, believe in Christian education, and desire to serve the Lord and local families with their gifts in these areas. 

Our Plan

CCA opened in August 2023 with a soft start for preschool and kindergarten, and will expand to preschool through 4th grade in the fall of 2024. We will add a grade every year until reaching 8th grade. During this time we will make the move to a larger facility that is as close as possible to our current location in Crestwood.
