Cornerstone Schools continues expansion work at former Parkway Christian School building
By Donna Francavilla
BIRMINGHAM - AL — In just three weeks, a new high school is set to open in the Birmingham area. Cornerstones Schools of Alabama is transforming the former Parkway Christian School building in Center Point into a new middle and high school. With the expansion, the school's population combined at both campuses is set to increase to around 40 teachers and 460 students. Cornerstone will now be able to educate students from pre-kindergarten all the way through high school. Students in pre-k through 5th grade will attend the Woodlawn campus while middle school and high school students will be taught at the Roebuck campus.To expedite its expansion efforts, the private Christian school recruited hundreds of volunteers to work at both campuses. Several volunteers from Church of the Highlands, which assists every year during its "Serve Day," pitched in Saturday, cleaning the facilities, painting and doing other odd jobs around the schools. The first day of school for students is scheduled for Aug. 6.
