Cornerstone Testing Information

Our goal at Cornerstone Classical is to support the home school family by offering classes taught by qualified instructors that build on foundations laid from year to year. This structure allows families to plan long term to reach educational goals and help to meet the Indiana Core 40, except for health and PE.  If for any reason we are unable to offer a specific class at the time of need, then it is the responsibility of the family to find other options to fulfill that requirement.
