Cornerstone Christian School has been called and kept for the Lord’s plans and purposes in this community, our nation, and our world. Founded by a husband and wife team, Bryon and Lucinda Kustka, who saw the need for Christian education for this community, CCS is a discipleship Christian school.
Cornerstone Christian School (CCS) was established in the fall of 1984. The school originally began classes at the First Baptist Church in Papillion, Nebraska, and then moved to Calvary Christian Church in Bellevue. As the school continued to grow, CCS moved to Thanksgiving Lutheran Church in the fall of 2002. The school has continued to grow and now students can attend pre-kindergarten through the twelfth grade (Pre-K-12). The school year 2014-15 marked the first graduating class of seniors. Our campus is now located at 1001 N. Fort Crook Road, Bellevue.
Cornerstone Christian School is an approved school through the Nebraska Department of Education. All teachers hold a state of Nebraska teaching certificate and have a strong commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ and His children. CCS follows the NDE guidelines for the school day, the school year, and an established curriculum with assessment and evaluation.
Cornerstone Christian School is a discipleship school committed to the academic, spiritual, and social growth of each student. Our students receive an excellent education in all academic subjects along with instruction in vocal and instrumental music, art, technology, and physical education. Emphasis is placed on developing a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and a Biblical worldview. Students receive daily Bible instruction, attend weekly chapel services, and participate in service projects for the community, and high school students serve on annual missions’ trips both stateside and abroad.
Cornerstone Christian School has an outstanding history of student achievement and most students test between one and three grades above the national norm on standardized tests. CCS teaches a love for God’s Word with a comprehensive Biblical worldview and believes that academic excellence must be central and for God’s Glory. With the premise that all truth is God’s Truth, the CCS academic standard is one of excellence and commitment to the Truth of God’s Word.
Cornerstone Christian School has great parent volunteers who assist in the lunchroom, serve as classroom aides, drive for field trips, coach athletic teams, and serve on various committees and the Parent-Teacher Fellowship Committee. Cornerstone families are known for their care of each other and their generosity in service.
The school is a board-organized and maintained school. The school board consists of parents and community members. The CCS school board is one committed to prayer and discipleship.
This obedience and faith as a school will result in a Godly influence on our community, our nation, and our world- for His Glory!
