Our Mission is to provide youth with leadership development training and educational support in the areas of STEM related courses to augment their matriculation in public school.
The Cornerstone Center For Science, Technology, and Leadership Development began as a math tutoring program in the 2000-2001 school year. It was held two days a week.
The Center as it exists today was founded in 2009, and was named the Leadership Academy. Thus, other programs were added in addition to the tutoring program. In August of 2011, the Leadership Academy officially changed its name to The Cornerstone Center for Science, Technology and Leadership Development.
This Center is divided into four main components…
This program provides tutoring services for K-12 students, mainly in the subject areas of mathematics and the sciences. This program also conducts workshops for SAT, EOG, Leadership Building (skill) seminars. It also provides individual and group counseling.
Reading Enrichment Program
This program is conducted bi-weekly on Saturdays for grade levels K-5. This is for at-risk or underprivileged students. The sessions are normally from 9am -12pm. Special events may cause the program to run as late as 2pm.
This program provides free-play basketball during after-school hours. Periodically this program will provide lessons for participation in a more structured manner (i.e. Golf, fencing, martial arts, etc).
It is an eight week (35 hrs/week) camp held over the course of summer break for grades K-12. It provides a structured academic curriculum of math, science, reading, and writing. Recreation, field trips, and other extra curricular activities are also provided.
