Principal's welcome

Welcome to Cornerstone Christian Academy! I am so glad that you are taking the time to learn more about our amazing community. My name is Andrew Duininck and I am excited to be partnering in the leadership of CCA and continuing to serve and grow this flourishing community. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year and to tell you a bit about myself.


I am originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I received my undergraduate degree from Bethel University in Minnesota and received my Master’s Degrees from Liberty University in Virginia. My wife and I, along with our two young boys, moved to the area after serving in public and private schools in Texas, Arizona, Indonesia, and Oklahoma.


I have had the opportunity to travel to many different parts of the world and experience life and culture as it is defined by the variety of ethnicities that color our beautiful planet. I believe the diverse opportunities I have had have truly shaped my teaching and leadership style. I have a great passion for our diverse world and pride myself in having the skills necessary to reach all my students and lead my colleagues.


I seek to combine my faith with my educational philosophy to directly influence the next generation of leaders and learners for Christ. As Christians, we have a moral obligation to influence those around us for the kingdom of God. I seek to expand my realm of influence and use every opportunity as a platform to share the gospel and influence the development of strong leaders through staff development and direct student interaction.


I am very excited about the opportunity to work with you and your children. If you have questions or concerns at any time, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to help your child be successful and to partner with you in their social, moral, and academic development. Feel free to stop by the office, contact me by phone at 815-895-8522 or send me an email at . I look forward to seeing you in August and working with you and your child this school year!
