After 35 years of offering this popular, classroom-focused conference for elementary teachers, Franciscan University is ending Creative Cornerstones with the summer 2015 course. If you wish to be among the 6, 500 elementary educators who have benefitted from this experience, we urge you to register soon in order to guarantee a place in this final opportunity.

    Creative Cornerstones Apple

    Training Today's Educators for Tomorrow's Classrooms!

    Designed for teachers who work exclusively with elementary PreK-6 students in a regular and/or special needs classroom setting.

    You can rest assured that the high professional academic and practical quality will be maintained in the Summer of 2015.

    Creative Cornerstones has a history of exceptional enrollment and many classroom teachers have been closed out. To avoid disappointment in 2015, please register early for the conference of your choice. We will close all registrations at the time when all accommodations are spoken for.

    We look forward to seeing you at Creative Cornerstones this summer.

Franciscan University of Steubenville is no ordinary university, and a Franciscan education is no ordinary education. Rather, it's an education as rigorous and demanding as it is faithful--an education that challenges you intellectually, forms you professionally, and feeds you spiritually.
