The school is now seeking enrollees for pre-K through all high school levels. The curriculum is centered around a ?classical Christian model.? Students, even at the elementary school level, are required to study Latin. They also must regularly attend brief, nondenominational chapel
services at the school. ?One of the passions that I have within the classical Christian model is making sure that we train up and equip students who can think for themselves,? Steve Marshall said. ?We want to help students who can discern, who can reason, who can argue, who can defend their point of view and articulate.? When it comes to hiring teachers, he looks outside normal channels for instructors who are a special fit for Cornerstone. ?I look for three passions in my teachers,? Marshall said. ?We are a Christian school, and they have to have a passion for the Lord. They have to know Jesus Christ as their personal savior. That?s important. The second passion is one for teaching. Not everyone is called to be a teacher. I want teachers who have a passion and are not just picking up a paycheck because there is nothing better to do. The third is either a passion for the subject area or a passion for the age group.''
