Reason for choosing Cornerstone: Cornerstone is organized as a ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Belize. It opened its door in 2003. Cornerstone serves the young people in the rural areas of the Corozal District. Cornerstone provides a holistic learning experience in which the students  view the different area of studies using a  Biblical worldview.  Not only do we help our students grow academically but we also instill in them values and morals that will help them become productive citizens.

Principal’s remark: Cornerstone offers a Christ-centered education. We believe that ALL students are rationale creative beings made in God’s image and deserve an opportunity to have an education. The Cornerstone Staff is committed to work along with your child to help them excel academically and to instill in them lifelong values that will prepare them to positively impact their communities. Our curriculum engages the students to view the world using the Spectacle of God’s word and think Biblically about all of life.

STATEMENT OF DOCTRINE

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Romans 12:2

Cornerstone Presbyterian High School holds to the doctrines of Scripture as set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith.

 

WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE is the revealed, holy, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. It is our only authority for life, and is our rule of faith and practice.

 

WE BELIEVE GOD IS TRIUNE. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are together one God in three distinct persons (The Holy Trinity).

 

WE BELIEVE GOD IS SOVEREIGN. He is the supreme ruler, absolutely in control of everything, and sustains all things by His power.

 

WE BELIEVE GOD IS THE CREATOR. He created everything out of nothing and created man in His own image, giving him dignity and worth.

 

WE BELIEVE GOD IS THE SAVIOR. Before all time, God the Father chose those upon whom He would set His special love. He then sent His son to earth to die on a cross to save those whom He chose. The Holy Spirit applies the work of Christ to all who respond by faith, indwelling them upon conversion.

 

WE BELIEVE MAN IS SINFUL AND SEPARATED FROM GOD. Before coming to

Christ for forgiveness, man is at enmity with God, deserving eternal damnation. Every part of man is affected by sin, rendering him unable to come to God apart from the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.

 

WE BELIEVE ETERNAL LIFE IS OFFERED TO ALL MEN. The benefits of Christ's death are freely offered to all, and to those who respond by faith alone, the free gift of eternal life is given.

Student Life

Athletics

The Cornerstone Hawks

We believe that our body is the temple of God, therefore our  vision as a school is to use sports  to reach out to our young students and help them develop athletic skills, team-work, service to others, responsibility, endurance, but most importantly praise God with their whole body.

Service opportunities

As Cornerstone seeks to guide and motivate our students to positively impact our communities and the world we serve, we strongly believe that service learning is an important aspect of education.

 We therefore  provide opportunities for our students to serve their peers, the school-community, Belize and the world at large as an expression of their love for God.

Chapel

As a school community we provide the opportunity for our students and staff to worship and celebrate God’s faithfulness in our lives  during our Tuesday Chapel.
