Welcome to the Cornerstone Charter Schools Washington-Parks Academy Home Page
Charter Schools are, "Chartering a Better Course for Detroit's Youth"
and helping to create a new city for all. The Cornerstone Charter Schools
Foundation was derived from 20 year of educational excellence established by
the Cornerstone Schools Association. We share the same focus on developing the
whole child, student success and measurable results.
Our mission is to provide students with a comprehensive and rigorous education
that prepares them for higher learning and life. Our dedicated community of Faculty, Parents, Friends, and Partners
supports a standards-based curriculum. Together with learning based on
principles like integrity, character, and service, the result is
civic-minded children who are well prepared for life and leadership.
Standards of Character Education: Love, Peace, Patience, Kindness,
Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control, Citizenship,
At the Washington-Parks Academy we prepare our most valuable resource for a secure
future through a rigorous curriculum, personalized learning instruction, an
11-month school year, a nurturing love of others, and a deep and rich learning
experience in a safe and clean environment. That's why great things are
happening at our school every day.
Our children are currently participating in a comprehensive music program that
includes choir and violin. They are also learning the importance of economics and
foreign language, preparing them for life and leadership in a global economy.
It is in ways like these we provide an exceptional education to Detroit’s
you to visit the Cornerstone Charter Schools Washington-Parks Academy to meet our
children, faculty and staff. Should you decide to send your child here, or
become a Partner or Friend to one, know that you’ll be helping to chart a
better course for Detroit’s youth now for years to come.
