Academic preparation for the ever-changing world.
The Upper Division experience at The Cornerstone School offers a challenging, yet engaging curriculum coupled with the skills needed to flourish in a twenty-first-century world.
The Upper Division curriculum reflects high academic standards, and our faculty is dedicated to allowing each student to discover their academic, social, creative, and physical strengths. Because social and academic skills are inextricably linked, we strive to create a supportive, respectful, and safe atmosphere where students can explore interests, take responsible risks, and develop academic skills and knowledge.
Dedicated faculty members work together to create an engaging curriculum, rich with opportunities for deeper thinking as students develop key twenty-first-century skills: communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. We aim to help students grow in self-awareness and self-discipline so they can manage increasingly challenging coursework.
