Education of children through the development of mind, body and spirit from a Christian perspective

Cornerstone Christian School is a non-denominational Christian school located in the Indian River Area of Chesapeake serving Pre-3 through 5th grade in a traditional classroom setting. Our main goals are to motivate our students to learn, to increase their knowledge of God and His love for them, and help them reach their full potential!

  • Offers Pre-3 through 5th grade
