In today’s world, the most successful innovators among us share some common traits: curiosity, creativity, and perseverance. At Cornerstone Academy, we cultivate these traits within our students so the traits become habits of mind and learning. These habits contribute to making positive life changes so our students can be prepared to meet their goals and affect positive change in the world.

One way we encourage this type of thinking is by fostering curiosity. We allow our students to follow their ideas and engage in meaningful explorations through independent and small group projects. Through the creation of makerspaces, development of communication skills, and encouraging inventive thinking, innovation becomes part of our everyday life.

For more information on the makerspace movement and creating innovators, see our booklist on the resource page.
