Cornerstone is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2005. The original aim of Cornerstone was to provide a Christian-based educational environment to the Bastrop community. For over a decade, Cornerstone High School did just that. However, after seeing a bigger need for Christian education at younger grades, we restructured our organization in 2019.
In August of 2019, Cornerstone started offering programs for toddlers through kindergarten and Cornerstone High School became Cornerstone Christian Academy. The plan was to adapt to the needs of our community and then grow with our families. Cornerstone still aims to provide a Christian-based educational environment to the Bastrop community. We have just changed the way we are accomplishing that goal. In August 2020, Cornerstone will be expanding to provide a first through third grade program as well.
The posted position is to assist lead teachers with overseeing our various programs and filling in for teachers that are out. This position will involve assisting Cornerstone's teachers with running their programs according to the stated mission and values of the organization. Cornerstone's mission is to help parents lay a foundation that their children can build meaningful lives upon. As an organization we value Christianity, personal responsibility, collaboration, curiosity, and character.
All teachers could be expected to pray with and for students and to talk to them about God, be responsible for all matters concerning their classroom, build strong relationships with the staff, parents, and students, be excited and willing to learn and grow, and conduct themselves in an upright manner. All these things will be done with the ultimate purpose of helping parents successfully prepare their children to go lead purposeful lives.
The long-term goal of our organization is to pursue our mission and values long enough to foster a vibrant, faith-based toddler through twelfth grade community that helps parents teach and equip their children with the knowledge and resources they need to go live excellent and meaningful lives that positively impact Bastrop, its surrounding communities, and the world.
Although experience and skills are important and will be considered, we are looking for people who are primarily motivated to help our organization achieve these goals. We look forward to hearing from you!
