Welcome to Cornerstone Academy Preparatory School (CAPS)…We are so excited to have you join our Pride Lion Community.

CAPS is an exceptional school that is highly academic and challenging. We look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our scholars can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order for our scholars to be successful in school, our scholars need support from both home and school.  We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your scholar’s education. We ask that you guide and support your scholar’s school experience by actively participating in our community. Our scholars can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the various events and activities Cornerstone has been fortunate to offer.

We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:

  • Teacher-led class support as your scholar’s class Homeroom Parent
  • Leading and/or supporting PA events
  • Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers.
Pride Lion News is a monthly publication of the CAPS PA, in coordination with the CAPS Administration, providing a wealth of current information regarding CAPS events, activities and other important information for parents. Pride Lion News is electronically delivered to CAPS parents and Faculty/Staff via email.
 
If you would like to make a submission of a school related event or obtain a copy of Pride Lion News, please e-mail: parentsassociation@capssj.org with the subject title: Pride Lion News.
