We take great pride in the highly academic educational program we provide to our students. The Academy does not teach to the middle of the class, rather we teach in order to meet the individual needs of each student.

Why Private School

Transitional kindergarten through Grade 6 are the most formative years in your child’s education. Integrity, attitude, work ethic, confidence, and a sense of life’s possibilities are all shaped during this crucial span from early childhood to adolescence.

About / History

Cornerstone Academy was founded in 1996 when the director, Karen McQuade, followed a dream to start her own school. Her vision was to create a school that tailors instruction to each student’s unique abilities and needs.


Nestled on three acres of wooded land, Cornerstone Academy offers a peaceful, quiet and safe place for your child to learn and explore. Our school currently includes four large classrooms, a function/after school room, office space, and a kitchen area.
