Cornerstone believes that each student is created by God with a unique set of virtues, that is, characteristics, gifts, skills, traits, etc., specifically designed to make the individual "fitted" to fulfill God's plan for their life. Not only does this virtue set specifically suit the individual for blessing them and fulfilling God’s plan for them, it is meant also to bless their families and the whole world. Christian/Biblical education, therefore, seeks to provide an environment whereby each student's virtue set may be maximally developed.
The virtues, as far as Christian education is concerned, are divided into four categories: the academic (intellectual), aesthetic (creative), athletic (kinesthetic), and spiritual/moral (character and salvation).
In the proper educational environment, the virtues within each category are allowed to fully flower according to the student’s gifting. By providing this environment, learning is more permanent, more enjoyable, and more productive. Ultimately, the student’s learning experience results in becoming what God intended, that is, by "becoming" what God gifted them to be. This brings maximal glory to God, happiness to the individual, and ministry to the world.
