Idaho State moves closer to "School Vouchers" IDAHO

Have you heard of "school vouchers"?

This is a program used in various other parts of the country. It essentially allows eligible families to obtain funds equal to the private education allowance that is allocated for their eligible student(s), and use those funds to pay for an ACCREDITED school of their choice. 

We are not sure of the eligibility qualifications yet, but the process is moving forward for State legislative approval. We definitely support this choice to be afforded to all families in Idaho!

AS ONE OF THE FEW ACCREDITED SCHOOL IN THE AREA, WE ARE CERTAIN THAT IF THIS MEASURE PASSES WE WILL BE FULLY ENROLLED WITH SIZABLE WAITING LISTS.

Please review the letter just received and begin to familiarize yourself with the aspects of the program. Again, private schools who meet accreditation will be in high demand should this measure pass.

Ms. Wilcox served as the 5th grade teacher here at CornerStone from 2009-2014, and has been longing to serve at the Lord’s next opportunity.

CCA Board of Director Changes board of directors

With the 3-year anniversary of CornerStone Christian Ministries soon approaching, the Board has begun a mandatory change of directors as required by the school by-laws. At the conclusion of a director’s third-year of service, they are required to either resign their position or make an official notification to the Board that they wish to serve an additional term.  We have been blessed beyond measure with the directors who have served through this inaugural term. 

Co-Chairman Jay Eisenbarth, Director Theresa Malarkey, and Director Jeanne Selden have advised that they are taking this transition opportunity to step-back and resign their potions accordingly. Each of them have expressed their desire for our school to continue in our future plans and hopes for abundant blessings as the Lord guides our way. Although we have no measurable way to show our appreciation for their dedication, service, and love of our children, we know the Lord Jesus is fully aware of their help to our school.

Thank-you Jay, Theresa, and Jeanne! May the Lord bless you and your families for all you have done for us!

With the Lord's blessings,

Rev. John and Kimblery Young

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. - Heb. 12:1 (NLT)
