Core Values


Crossroads creates an environment where all students flourish. Our welcoming culture is sought out by those of all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds, and we are committed to ensuring that every member of the Crossroads community is equipped with what they need in order to meet our high expectations. We are a community that reflects our city and our world, preparing students for a global marketplace.

High Expectations

We believe our students and teachers are capable of great things and inspire them to actively seek knowledge and understanding, think independently, reason critically, and embrace challenges. School-wide goals and expectations are owned by every student, staff member, parent and board member and equal accountability creates an environment where every student can excel.

Real World Learning

Our teachers work tirelessly to ensure that learning comes to life for students at Crossroads schools. Through hands-on, project-based, and authentic learning experiences and downtown expeditions, students explore real-world issues and problems. We strive to create a love of learning in all students.

Creative Culture

Every member of the Crossroads community is a learner and creator. Our students are challenged to be innovative as they solve problems and overcome challenges. Our teachers creatively engage their students, recognizing how each student individually learns and adjusting their teaching accordingly. And our organization uses cutting-edge research, forging and proving best practices, to give our students an excellent education.
