Cornerstone Christian Academy of McLean County is an independent, Nondenominational Christian college-preparatory private school located in Bloomington, Illinois. CCA enrolls preschool through 12th grade. It has a total enrollment of approximately 400 students.


In 1997, the Eastview Christian Church preschool was taken over and renamed "Cornerstone Christian Academy of McLean County, Inc." In 1998, Cornerstone moved to Grace United Methodist Church in Bloomington, where it accepted students from preschool through 4th grade. It later expanded to three campuses at Faith United Methodist, which housed the preschool; Grace United Methodist held kindergarten through fourth grade; and Second Presbyterian Church for 5th and 6th grade. A new building was constructed outside Bloomington, and was opened December 1, 2003. In 2016, a high school addition was completed. The school has been fully accredited since 2006 by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).


Cornerstone offers a program held during the first two weeks of January called Winterim. During this time high school students are allowed to choose from various credit-earning classes not normally taught during the school year, particularly in the arts and industrial technology. 11th and 12th grade students are allowed to select an internship. Students also have the opportunity to travel abroad for study trips during this time.


Cornerstone's athletic teams are named the Cyclones, and their school colors are forest green and white. The school participates in the East Central Illinois Athletic Conference, and is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA).
