Teacher training and development are an essential part of Cornerstone's overall plan for improving instruction and student performance. Cornerstone invests over 50 hours annually to train our teachers with the latest research on accelerating learning and the use of technology which supports and enhances our mission and objectives. The focus of our technology is not on the technology itself, but on how the technology can be used as a tool to further support the student’s learning goals and spiritual growth.
