CornerStone Christian Ministries welcomes NEW Board Member... Dr. Scott Elliott, D.C.! dr e

Once again, it is with much privilege and blessing that we announce the newest member of our Board of Directors, Dr. Scott Elliott. The Lord continues to bring strong and willing individuals of wise and quality calibers to serve and bring added value to our school board. Herein is another example of His grace and blessing upon our school!

Dr. Elliot currently serves our surrounding community at River City Chiropractic here in Post Falls (which we highly recommend). His heart and compassion to help others carries the full joy of the Lord and bears witness through his ever-present smile.

Again, we are blessed by his willingness to serve on the CCA Board of Directors. Congratulations Dr. Elliott! Thank-you for helping our school...

It is with great privilege and blessing that we formally announce our new Vice-Principal, Mrs. Jordan Helmuth! We have been fortunate to have Mrs. Helmuth not only as our middle school teacher, but serving as acting Vice-Principal for a majority of the past school year.

CCA's School Plan for Covid-19...??? plans

CornerStone Christian Academy –

Summary of Covid-19 Response Plan


Background: As many schools are preparing to return to classes soon, several “plans” have been made available that detail their guidelines based on certain criteria in regards to Covid-19. These plans have various levels, color codes, terminology, etc., that outlay various conditions that impact and affect their status of operation(s). As such, we wanted to revisit our “plan” in review as we close down one year and get ready for another.

We are full for 2020-2021...! full

It's what you could call "good news" and "bad news"....

We are FULL for this coming school year 20-21!

The Lord continues to grow us! We are very humbled to be at full capacity for the 2020-2021 upcoming school-year. We have filled ALL classes in elementary K-6th, ALL preschool, and ALL daycare spaces. It is a blessing, but somewhat difficult, not to have more room and openings though. We believe the Lord has shown us favor in our efforts to continue our educational and ministry offerings, and now we are ready to embrace another year...!

Yes, we will have school in fall (...in fact, where in school now finishing this year!) 

Yes, we have plans (as we did this year) for Covid-19 issues.

  • Yes, we can operate in full-shutdown (closure) with distance learning & teacher packets (like this year). 
  • Yes, we can operate in limited groupings of 10-or less with our split day schedule (as we did this year; also now a plan used by many other private schools in the state), if we are placed into limited restrictions.
  • Yes, we can operate in strict protocols if we get exposed or brought into a potential exposure situation of Covid-19 (as we successfully did with the few such instances we encountered)

Daycare Rates Revised (Effective 9-1-2020)


July 6, 2020

Dear CCA Families,

After much prayer and consideration, and in light of the recent and lingering consequences of Covid-19 (including the resulting impacts), CornerStone Christian Academy will be undertaking new rates for daycare services. With heightened cleaning and disinfecting protocols, we have no alternative other than raise rates to fund the increasing costs of operating. As we all know, the intensified cleaning efforts come with many costs beyond the cleaning supplies themselves (i.e. time, labor, resources). We are hopeful in your support and understanding in this difficult decision.


  • This new rate increase will go into effect September 1st, 2020.
  • Daycare services will increase $25.00 per-month, per student.

It has been the blessing of the Lord and the efforts of Mindy and Mrs. Young that have allowed our rates to remain unchanged for over 2-years now. We know that an increase can bring burdens, yet we trust our families to understand the need in light of Covid-19 and our efforts to provide the safest environment possible, especially as we continue to move forward.

We appreciate the prayers, support, and understanding as we undertake these new challenges. Please let us know if you have any questions moving forward.

Thank-you again for blessing us with the care of your child…
