Spiritual Life


Cornerstone Christian Academy junior high and high school students enjoy special retreat times in the fall, where they travel with staff to retreat centers. These student retreats are part of the educational environment at CCA, and it is a requirement that all full-time students attend these retreats.

Junior high students travel to Timber-Lee Christian Center, at the beginning of the school year, with the goal of building stronger relationships with each other. This retreat is planned not only to help students improve their relationship-building skills, but also to expose them to team building skills, outdoor adventures, science and history education, and spiritual insight. Timber-Lee is located in East Troy, Wisconsin, about a 90-minute trip from CCA. Activities include high ropes, a zip line, canoeing, animal encounters, wilderness survival, night hike, campfire, farm animals, archery, leather shop, dinosaurs, fossils, creation experience, and more!
