About Us

Cornerstone Family Schools (CFS) is an independent parent-led educational organization dedicated to assisting Christian families who have chosen to train their children in a responsible manner primarily at home. To accomplish this goal, CFS provides a structure of accountability, support, and encouragement for parents who desire to provide their children with the best possible training. This includes development of faith and virtue, essential knowledge and skills, and preparations for “life work.”   

  While the primary role of CFS is to provide accountability and support to home school families, CFS also offers a variety of optional group activities and enriching options not normally available to an individual home-educating family. In summary, the combination of accountability, familial responsibility, and resources is intended to educate and train young men and women to work in and minister to the world with the character and love of Christ. 

  An elected board, comprised of Cornerstone member parent  volunteers, meets monthly to guide the organization. The board members, who serve three-year terms, oversee the budget, activity policies, and many other points of business.  Since CFS is a volunteer only organization, it takes the commitment of all member families to volunteer in various ways to provide the opportunities available to members.
