Who We Are

CornerStone Preparatory School began as a Madisonville satellite campus of Heritage Christian Academy in 2017. In just two short years, the school experienced sufficient growth to enable it become an independent school. We began the 2019-2020 school year as CornerStone Prep at our location on Center Street in Madisonville, where we continue to grow. 

CornerStone seeks to forge foundations from a biblical worldview by equipping students academically and spiritually for college, career, and life.

Mission: Equipping students with academic and spiritual foundations for life

At CornerStone, we believe that building a strong foundation is key to success. Our name is a direct reference to Jesus Christ, who is the cornerstone of our mission. We firmly believe that without Jesus as the centerpiece of our foundation, everything else will falter. By placing Jesus at the forefront, we can build upon other foundational blocks, such as faith, academic excellence, and character.

The foundational blocks of faith consist of developing a biblical worldview, having a kingdom mindset, and serving others. Academic excellence is achieved through mastery learning and acquiring 21st-century skills. Character is built through upholding integrity, taking responsibility, showing respect, and prioritizing health and wellness. At CornerStone, our mission is to build foundations that last a lifetime.

We are dually accredited through ACSI and Cognia (formerly AdvancEd) which allows us to offer an education that is recognized and accepted by universities throughout the country and around the world.  Acquiring accreditation from these internationally known organizations ensures that the processes and procedures by which the school makes decisions – around curriculum, instruction, and assessment – supports student learning.

Core Values


  1. Love and glorify God in all that we do (1 Corinthians 10:31, 1 Peter 4:11).


  1. Do everything, including academic teaching, in a way that helps fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).


  1. Affirm and encourage parents in their God-given roles and responsibilities (Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Proverbs 22:6).


  1. Educate with excellence in a Christ-centered environment (Luke 2:52, Proverbs 1:2-7, 3:13-20, 9:9, and 10:14).


  1. Integrate home and school in age-appropriate ways through curriculum design and student activities.

Statement of Faith


  1. We believe in the Bible as the authoritative word of God.


  1. We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


  1. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His expected return in power and glory.


  1. We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death.


  1. We affirm that salvation is by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
