Program Distinctives

Science at Cornerstone is taught from the point of view that we can learn more about our Creator by studying and caring for his creation. While God's inspired word (the Bible) is the ultimate authority for all truth, his creation also provides us a window to glimpse some of the creativity, wisdom and beauty that are his. After completing this hands-on and challenging program, you will be well equipped to help middle and high school students encounter God by learning about the things he has made.
