Founded in 2001 by Mike and Martha Zeher, Cornerstone Academy was established to provide specialized instruction for children with learning differences. The Zehers recognized a great need in their community, and other families experienced the intensified stress of parenting a child with learning difficulties. Feeling a burden to meet that need, the Zehers initially sought to develop a Special Education department in a larger Christian school, so that students with learning differences could be served with excellence alongside their general education peers. But when that did not seem feasible, Cornerstone Academy was established as its own school for students with learning differences.

Now, the initial vision of Cornerstone’s founders is being realized.  Cornerstone remains an educational haven for students diagnosed with learning differences while welcoming students of all learning styles and abilities. Through compassionate instruction and scaffolding, Cornerstone is committed to educating and equipping the whole body of Christ.
