At Cornerstone Learning Community, our aim is nothing short of positively impacting the world. Our mission to inspire and empower compassionate, global learners informs everything we do.
Our PreK – 8th grade education is the local leader in project based learning, service endeavors, and environmental education. This begins with our youngest learners who participate in indoor and outdoor classroom activities, as well as in an intergenerational music therapy program in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Project – one of only a few such programs in the nation.
As students get older they advocate as engaged citizens, engineer solutions to complex problems, create inspired works of music and art, and make connections between our partner farm and the dinner table. In all such situations, you find empowered and compassionate learners who influence our world in real and meaningful ways.
In CLC’s Authorized International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, our middle schoolers engage in projects within a global context, extending their reach, potential, and sense of responsibility. Students graduate as capable and caring critical thinkers who create, collaborate, and innovate.
Our annual auction helps to make this world-class opportunity available to a diverse range of families by funding our scholarship program, seeding new initiatives, and sustaining essential programs.
Currently about 22% of our students receive need-based scholarships thanks to the monies raised by our annual auction. More directly these funds enable students who would otherwise be unable to experience an independent school.
As a sponsor and/or donor to our Under the Stars auction, you are making a difference at a school that makes a difference. Your contribution impacts students, who in turn impact the world.
In short, helping CLC helps others. Your generosity lives on in our broader community through the work of the students influenced by you.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you and yours on March 24, 2017 as we celebrate Under the Stars!
