Cornerstone New Technology Update

Posted on: October 12th, 2016 by Admin

Cornerstone’s computer technology has been vastly upgraded because of the generous donations that were given to “Gifts from the Heart,” at our auction fundraiser last spring.

The most visible changes that have been made in Cornerstone’s technology area are bringing our computer lab up to current standards with brand new hardware and software, providing four new iPads to be used in the Kindergarten, first, and second grade classrooms, and also replacing outdated classroom computers, including those used by our yearbook class. A generous friend of Cornerstone also provided us with new computer tables which provide better functionality to the lab space.

Our sixth through twelfth grade students are already enjoying the benefits of the new computers as they do research and prepare papers and presentations with Office 365; our first graders have used the iPads to reinforce counting lessons from their class; and generally our classrooms are running a lot better with the new equipment.

Cornerstone’s educational technology changes are aimed at positioning our students well for academic success, as well as building long-term employment skills. We thank God for the faithful partnership of donors that help provide for the financial needs of an excellent education at Cornerstone Christian Academy.
