Program Distinctives

Cornerstone is unique in that not only will you receive a solid academic preparation for your professional education, but you will be taught from a biblically Christian worldview. We have a proven track record of giving students what they need not only to get into veterinary school, but to succeed once they get there. More importantly, our graduates' scientific knowledge is built on the solid foundation of the Word of God so that their faith is built up along with their minds. We recognize that caring for animals with skill and compassion is part of the creation mandate to us as God’s stewards of all He has made. Lots of schools around the country can provide a pre-vet education for the mind; Cornerstone is unique in using God’s Word to prepare your heart as well.
