Hats Off To Our 2023 Graduates!

Parents, Students and Educators
What They Say

“Though I didn’t know it at the time, CDS meant everything to me. Ultimately, I was the one who made the choice to turn my life around and go down a new path.”
Student, Fort Lee, NJ

“I want to personally thank you for all of your help with this very difficult family. Their son is in great need of treatment and I know both parents are comforted by the high level of care that he will receive at Cornerstone. For them I know that they see the 24/7 hot line as a godsend: Mom said that it’s the first time that she can really sleep at night.”

Case Manager, Essex County, NJ

“Cornerstone meant a lot to me. It taught me how to cope. It has truly made me the person I am today, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Student, Union, NJ

As the school year ends, it’s nice to reflect upon our students and recognize their hard work and many accomplishments, especially those of our graduating seniors.  Over the past year, our students have worked diligently on their therapeutic challenges and completed academic work.

We are also very excited about our eighth-grade students, nineteen of which will be graduating and moving on to the ninth grade. While most students will remain at Cornerstone, there are several who are returning to their district for their high school experience. Congratulations to our graduates. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors; always remember your Cornerstone family! Hats off to all of you for achieving this milestone! 

Be bold, be courageous, and be your best…
