You Will Never Cease To Grow By Learning - Legacy-Advisors

Cornerstone Christian Academy is a co-educational, independent school for children in kindergarten through eighth grade, located in Kingsessing, one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Founded in 1988 by Dr. Tony Campolo (speaker, author, and college professor) and Jim Sweet (a Philadelphia attorney), 20 years later their mission remains: to educate children in an environment that provides the highest standards for academic achievement and personal development. The program provides a safe haven for neighborhood children during the summer, opportunities for academic enrichment and a nurturing environment in which they can develop wholesome relationships with peers and adults. The children participate in sports, games, field trips, learn skills and ultimately produce and perform in a musical at the end of the summer. The Legacy Foundation’s grant provided funding for their J Rock Summer Camp Program, which included arts and crafts supplies, field trip expenses, t-shirts for the campers and other expenses related to their musical production. The associates of Legacy Advisors also had the opportunity to volunteer their time and talents by visiting the camp and working with the children on various projects, in particular helping them prepare for their musical performance.
