Curriculum

Cornerstone Academy follows the 8-4-4 curriculum. Text books have been carefully selected to provide a comprehensive treatment in each area of learning in proper sequence. In line with school motto, “Knowledge founded on Christ”, Bible is taught every day. In addition, Bible truths are integrated with all learning objectives. This helps to have students who are all round, that is, spiritually, morally and academically.

The following non-examinable subjects are taught weekly:
Life skills
Physical education
Computer studies
Creative arts( Art and music)
Swimming

Students sit for KCPE exams at the end of Standard Eight

To supplement the classroom teaching, we provide a course textbook for every subject and supplementary books as needed. There are individual classroom libraries. Our pupils participate in inter-school quizzes, namely Class 4 Maths, Class 5 Science, Class 6 Social Studies, Class 7 Kiswahili and Class 8 CRE. The entire class benefits from the preparation and practice.

Instruction of high academic quality along with training in Christian character prepare our students to take their place in the home, the church, the nations and their vocations or professions.
