Admission Procedures

Pre-school thumbs up

Thank you for considering Cornerstone School for your child’s early education. To register your child for enrollment at Cornerstone School please complete our online application in its entirety. Completion of the application does not guarantee placement.

Applications from currently enrolled students, siblings of current or former students are considered first and are to be submitted by mid December to receive priority placement.

Applications from new families wishing to enroll their child at Cornerstone but have no prior affiliation can be submitted beginning December 15. All application are due mid January. See our online application for specific dates.

All applications from new families are placed in an applicant pool. In order to develop positive learning communities we must work to ensure that students have the opportunity to learn and teachers to teach. We need to balance the classes in terms of size, number of boys and girls, and peers who we believe will work well together to bring out each other strengths.

If at any time during the application process you feel Cornerstone is not the appropriate choice for your child and family, please notify the school.
