CEG desires for every scholar to attend and succeed in college. Grade level represents the best measure of college preparation for elementary and middle school students. Therefore, CEG measures the growth and grade level of all scholars, closing achievement gaps and moving students closer to grade level each year.

 2014-2015 MAP Fall to Winter National Growth Percentile for Lester Prep sixth grade

We are so proud of these 6th graders and can see that this founding class of Lester Prep are truly on their way to college. 

We are so proud of our prepsters for their growth in reading! At Cornerstone Prep, we assess all of our prepsters at the beginning of the school year to record our prepsters baseline reading fluency and comprehension levels using the Reading A-Z running records. Then, every prepster is assessed at least once every six weeks to track their reading throughout the year. At the end of this past school year, we were thrilled at how much prepsters had improved in their reading. See reading growth results here!

Terra Nova

The Terra Nova is recognized as one of the most rigorous national tests and has a norm created by approximately 350,000 students across the nation. This assessment was used during our first two years and has subsequently been replaced by the MAP assessment. See past Terra Nova results.
