Important Announcements

School closure UPDATE: Governor Andy Beshear is now recommending that school closures are extended through April 20. CornerStone Prep is committed to ensuring the safety of our students, families, and staff and we will follow this recommendation and do our part to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, the date that we plan to return to school is now Monday, April 20, 2020.

Non-Traditional Instruction is in full swing for our Royals! While we miss seeing students everyday, we are thankful for the opportunity to continue instruction through virtual platforms like Class Dojo and Google classroom. We are also exploring ways to increase our digital instruction through Google Hangouts and Zoom and will update you as those become available to students.

While this is an unprecedented situation, we appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time. If you have any questions, please contact the school at (270) 841-7540 or

Mrs. Lile is excited to be returning as the Principal at CornerStone Prep for the 2020-2021 school year. In living up to the CornerStone Prep motto, Mrs. Lile will be serving as principal in a distinctly different manner. As many of you know, her husband Jeremy recently returned from deployment and is now stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. The organizational leadership at CornerStone Prep has been restructured to allow Mrs. Lile to relocate with her husband and conduct business remotely. Mrs. Lile will work on-site at times throughout the year as well.

What does this new organizational leadership look like?

Mrs. Lile will continue to be the head of the school. She will serve as the chief executive officer, overseeing all operations. She will provide instructional leadership and set the overall tone and agenda for the school, students and staff. She will collaborate with the board of directors to implement school policies, enforce these policies and manage the staff to ensure compliance with the school's policies. Mrs. Lile will also establish goals and objectives for the school and work with employees to ensure compliance with these objectives.

Mrs. Lile will be graduating with her doctorate in Educational Leadership with a Superintendency certification in May. Her coursework has played a vital role in the restructuring of the organizational leadership at CornerStone Prep. Simply stated, Mrs. Lile's role will be very similar to that of a public school district's superintendent. Most superintendents work off-site and conduct regular site visits throughout the school year.

Who will be in charge when Mrs. Lile is not working on-site?

Mrs. Audrey Morgan has been hired as the Executive Director and she will conduct daily operations. Mrs. Morgan will administer the budget, oversee the facility, encourage parent involvement, handle disciplinary matters, and assist Mrs. Lile in establishing and implementing goals and objectives for the school. Simply stated, Mrs. Morgan's role will be very similar to that of an Assistant principal.

Will anyone be assisting Mrs. Morgan with daily operations?

Mrs. Rebekah Buchanan will be serving as the Office Manager and will maintain student attendance and academic records, process admission of new students, oversee school-wide assessment, as well as assist Mrs. Morgan with administrative responsibilities.

Who will I contact if I have a question or concern?

Most likely, Mrs. Buchanan will be the first person you speak with when you call the school. If Mrs. Buchanan cannot answer your question or resolve your concern, she will refer you to Mrs. Morgan. If Mrs. Morgan cannot answer your question or resolve your concern, she will refer you to Mrs. Lile.

CornerStone Prep is excited about this distinctly different opportunity!

A Note from Your Teachers

I'm going crazy without you! I know it's hard when things change, it's okay to adapt and do things differently. Keep stretching your science muscles, step outside for fresh air when you can, take care of your body and mind, and find someone you can help. ~Mrs. Buchanan

I am so proud of each of you for working hard this week. Keep up the good work. I miss your sweet faces and I hope to see you all soon! ~ Ms. Bowles

Hey y'all! Think of this time as an opportunity. Is there a skill that you've always wanted to learn? A book series you've always been interested in? Take this extra time we have all found on our hands to learn something new. Love y'all dearly and miss you even more! ~ Mrs. Walter

I miss my kinders!!! I can't wait to see all of your sweet faces again. More info to come next week. ~Mrs. Clayton
