CSS is on the move this summer!

It's a little more peaceful on campus during these long summer days but so much is still happening! Janet Etters took eleven 6th - 9th grade students to Lookup Lodge Summer Camp in Upstate, SC on our new-to-us school bus. (See details below.) Books have been ordered for the new school year. People are visiting and touring campus as they consider CCS for their children. And we're on the radio! You can hear CCS Family member Brice McCoy on WPUB 102.7 sharing what a blessing Cornerstone has been for their family. So take a minute to read through all of our news and information because it's a great time to be part of the CCS Family!

Important Dates to Remember

Could you use $380?

We hope all of you will take us up on this terrific offer to help spread the word about CCS. Cornerstone is offering one month of free tuition - that's $380 - to families who refer a new family to CCS. Once the new student pays their registration, book fees and the first month's tuition, your tuition account will be credited for one free month! There is no limit, so feel free to fill up our classrooms while you keep your money in your pocket. Please continue to pass on the word about our campus, our great facilities and and our mission. There are many in Kershaw County who don't about CCS and the great Christian education that we provide. 

Back to School Night

Bring your class supplies and enjoy seeing your teacher and your room from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. Supply lists links are listed below.

Cornerstone will be asking each student to purchase an Agenda for $10 the coming year. These will be available at our meeting.

We will also have our new t-shirts for sale. Available in multiple sizes, we're keeping the costs as low as possible in the hopes that our families will buy them and wear them on School Spirit days, field trips, and around town to advertise CCS to our community.

Look Up Lodge Summer Camp


Our 6th-8th graders just got back from their trip to Look Up Lodge Summer Camp where they had a fun week making great memories with friends and growing closer to God. View all camp pictures.

The Award-Winning Sarah Sheorn!

Our very own Sarah Sheorn earned the highest score on the SC Association of Christian Schools Iowa Testing. This is out of all South Carolina students through 8th grade, and we are honored to have the highest scorer right here! 

According to their website: "The Iowa Assessments are frequently used to test for admissions into gifted and talented or accelerated learning programs. They are often used in conjunction with cognitive tests, like the NNAT ® or CogAT ®, to get a complete picture of a student’s accomplishments and potential." 

And if that wasn't enough, she also received an award from the American Association of Christian Schools National Short Story and Poetry Contest for her submission to their annual contest.

Way to go, Sarah! We're so very proud of all you've accomplished so far and are blessed to be a part of your education.

The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round...

Our bus is up and rolling - and as you see has already taken kids to Lookup Lodge. Although the bus itself was a gift from a local church, expenses for repairs and updating its look came to around $2,600.
This is a fantastic price for a school bus, so would you please consider an extra gift to the Bus Fund? You may use the link below or you can send a donation to the school. Thank you for partnering with us.

CCS Is Now Offering K2-12th Grade!

The excellent education you expect from CCS can now continue through High School. Through Abeka Academy, your child will be enrolled in an accredited video program with a course schedule to follow along with digital tests and quizzes. Using a virtual classroom setting, Abeka Academy will grade all work and keep a record of each student’s progress. Each student will receive report cards and an official academic transcript meeting all SC State Graduation Requirements. Coursework can be specialized to fit your child over their high school years and the program will run with our normal school calendar allowing continuation of the great community they already enjoy here at CCS. Email the school office at to register today!

At CCS we like to keep our parents informed of ways to make Christian education the very affordable option. Several CCS parents are already taking advantage of this program.

Effective January 1, 2018, families may withdraw up to an aggregate of $10,000 a year per beneficiary tax free to cover K-12 tuition at public, private or religious elementary or secondary schools. Account owners are responsible for monitoring, and complying with the $10,000 aggregate limit for such expenses. (From the Future Scholars SC site)

Cornerstone Christian Families (CCF) is our new parent-teacher organization! We will be kicking off on Back to School Night, August 12th, with dinner provided. We hope to build better communication within CCS as well as build better awareness of our school in Kershaw County.
