Points of pride

A true neighborhood school, the Madison-Carver Academy is located at the heart of the Berg-Lahser Neighborhood on the west side. This school offers an excellent education to students in grades K-8 in a clean, safe, nurturing environment. Highly-qualified, passionate faculty and staff create lessons that are challenging, relevant, and meaningful, while caring for the whole child. Cornerstone utilizes technology to ensure that students are competitive, and have many opportunities to master material at their own pace. Building good character is infused in everything we do. We expose students to career options from an early age, so that they may explore occupations that align with their purpose and passion. Academic achievement, excellent character, and career awareness provide our students with the tools they will need to lead fulfilling lives.

School Safety Culture

We have developed an emergency operations plan for school buildings and trained all staff in school safety. All visitors to Cornerstone are scanned through an ID and real-time background check system. We have added additional security personnel for home athletic events and all schools use restorative justice practices.
