Cornerstone Christian School was opened in 1978 through the initiative of the elders at the Fort Collins Christian Center. They felt a sense of responsibility to provide an opportunity for Christian education to the children of the Fort Collins Christian Center. Enrollment was soon opened to families from other congregations.
The governing body for Cornerstone Christian School is now called Cornerstone Ministries which was established in 1999. The Board of Directors of Cornerstone Ministries oversees the policies and programs of the school, and assists with disciplinary matters. Parents may discuss issues with the Board of Directors by contacting the principal or one of the board members to arrange a meeting.
