Aloha CEEC Families,
“The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (Psalm 145:9)
We are pleased to announce that GracePoint Church will partner with Hawaii Baptist Academy (HBA) to provide a preschool for families in Central Oahu starting August 1, 2022. After much prayer and seeking God, our church’s Weekday Early Education Team, Elders, and myself believe God is leading us to transition Cornerstone Early Education Center to HBA Preschool @GracePoint. HBA will operate its preschool from our church campus and maintain the same operating hours and will grandfather/ honor the current tuition rates for our current students. We see this as a great blessing and partnership for all.
Registration fees parents have already paid to CEEC for both the summer and 2022-2023 school year will be refunded in full. In addition, HBA will welcome all students (3 and 4-year- olds) already attending CEEC along with new students who have been accepted for the 2022-2023 school year. HBA will do its best to consider accommodations for our toddler students as well. However, in the future the school plans to structure programs specifically around 3 and 4-year-olds.
We have provided a FAQ sheet to provide further information and details. A copy of this letter and the FAQ document are also available for review on our website www.cornerstonemililani.com. In addition to the FAQs, Ron Shiira (HBA President), Amy Vorderbruegge (HBA Elementary School Principal), leaders from GracePoint Church, and myself will be available to answer questions in person on Wednesday (April 20) and Thursday (April 21) at 6:00 P.M. each night at the church.
We understand that this change may present challenges and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this will cause you and your families. Both teams at GracePoint Church and Hawaii Baptist Academy will work diligently to help you transition and minimize the impact to our students, parents, and staff. HBA Preschool @GracePoint will encourage our current staff to apply for staff positions and make the transition with us to keep consistency where possible.
It has been an honor to serve you throughout these years. We look forward to the plans God has in store for all of us. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email email@example.com, or call 808-626-7719.
