Thank you for your interest in
Cornerstone Christian Academy & Tykes Preschool
We are thrilled at the prospect of your family joining ours. Cornerstone Christian Academy (CCA) was founded in 2001, serving grades K-8. Tykes Preschool was launched in 2003 & serves students stating at 18 months old through Pre-K.
Since the beginning, we have experienced growth beyond what we would have imagined. We believe that our growth is the direct result of our continued commitment to strong academics within a community cultivated through the love of Jesus. We are continually grateful for the opportunity to educate children to prepare them for their journey with a love for learning, a core value of kindness, patience, and discipline, but with unending support as they walk with God.
We are incredibly proud of earning ACSI Accreditation in both the Academy & Tykes Preschool. ACSI, (the Association of Christian Schools International) requires our school to maintain high standards and keeps us accountable to maintain God-driven principles. The level in which we approach education is unmatched assuring that your child will receive the finest school experience.
Tykes Preschool is rated within the top 1% of all licensed schools in the State of Nevada. Tykes has also earned a 5-star status through the Nevada QRIS Silver Stars program, being the only Private Christian Preschool to reach this status 3 times in a row!
Cornerstone Christian Academy and Tykes Preschool are both licensed through the State of Nevada.
We look forward to meeting with you, answering your questions and helping your child on their way to a SUCCESSFUL FUTURE.
