Nurturing Souls

Don't miss why Quentin Bennett's family chose CCS!

Hi, we are the Bennett family: Quincy, Terri and Quentin. We woud love to share our story about how we became a part of the Cornerstone Christian School family. It started in second grade where we had noticed that Quentin needed extra help in one subject. We began helping him at home and it was taking 3 to 4 hours each day along with the extra help he was being given at his public school. After nine weeks, there was no change, so we added a tutor on top of everything else. The classrooms were so crowded, with about 25 students, that we knew his teacher didn’t have time to help those who might not have gotten it the first time. That is a big problem because children just don’t learn at the same rate and some need to find other ways to help things connect. His public school offered an Individual Education Plan that sounded great for what we needed, but in reality it was more work for Quentin to do that he just didn’t understand. Instead of this being a solution, it made matters worse. 


Because they were so limited in resources and people, they just couldn’t take the extra time out to really find out what worked for Quentin. All they could do was place him in different programs that made no change in his progress. By the second nine weeks we felt that the public school wasn’t working and we prayed to ask God to lead us to the school that would be best for us.

Cornerstone's first Shakespeare play was a great success! The Fellowship Hall was filled to capacity for this fabulous combined effort with seven of Cornerstone's own students combining with sixteen area homeschool students. Many thanks go to the parents who jumped in by creating costumes and directing talented performers,   making this evening a lot of fun! Special thanks to Shereena Alvarado, (Gordon's mom) who turned the stage into a magical fairy forest! Thank you for supporting this fun event.
