On enrolment at Cornerstone each student is allocated a tribe (or house) for the purposes of inter-tribe events and competitions within the school.
The four tribes are:
- Asher (green),
- Issachar (yellow).
- Naphtali (blue),
- Zebulun (red)
Tribe competitions take place throughout the year, and include Athletics, Swimming, and team sports, in the summer, as well as Bible quizzes, and Performing Arts in the winter. Students are encouraged to compete in events wearing their tribe colours.
