With locations in Arlington and Green Cove Springs, Crossroads Christian Schools offer a K-12 private, Christian school opportunity for students with special education needs, as well as those from low-income families. Each school is approved for Florida state scholarships, such as the McKay scholarship, Gardiner scholarship (formerly PLSA) and Step Up for Students scholarship.
Our mission is to uncover and develop the unique, God-given talents and abilities within each child. Crossroads Christian Schools were founded to provide a faith-based education to students with varying backgrounds, needs and goals. Each course is taught with a faith-based moral foundation and perspective, as we strive to help students develop into productive citizens as they learn to apply values of character and integrity to every aspect of their lives.
We recognize that every child learns differently and all students have their own individual needs. We don't design our students around our programs; instead, we design our programs around our students.
One parent expressed the impact our school had on her son: "I want to extend a big thanks for the tremendous academic progress my son has made. I also want to thank the teachers who continue to strive to keep the academic level up to standard, which is not easy to do when dealing with children who may need accommodation but is so critical ... thanks for the exceptional director and teachers and their patience and integrity, who always see the abilities in both my boys, and push them to meet their potential."
• Low teacher/student ratio
• Highly qualified teachers
• State-of-the-art resources
• Tracked progression of every standard taught
• Fair grading methods
Crossroads Christian Schools provides an alternative approach to the traditional classroom, by maintaining smaller classrooms, employing qualified teachers skilled in assessing the student's grade level and differentiating the instruction necessary for each individual student. In addition, we offer a variety of teaching methods and curriculum within the context of an encouraging, nurturing environment, so students have found great success in our schools. The majority of students who enter Crossroads Christian School are able to catch up to a desired grade level and stay on course for graduation.
We service students who may have specific learning disabilities; speech, orthopedic, language or other health impairment; intellectual disabilities; emotional/behavioral disabilities; dual-sensory impairments; developmental delays; and autism spectrum disorder.
We utilize a variety of resources recognized by the State of Florida, including McGraw Hill, Apologia Science, Globe-Fearon Pacemaker Series, AGS, Go Math, among others, and have developed our own proprietary Bible curriculum.
Our standards are based on the Sunshine State standards, not Common Core. We only teach courses for which we have standards. Each course offered in our schools is listed in a curriculum guide with the following information:
• The level/grade to which the course is offered
• The credit value of the course (high school only)
• The major concepts and content
• The intended outcomes, standards and objectives
• The designated text and resource options
We also use a combination of textbooks and technology (tablets, laptops, TV's).
Students are placed in appropriate grades by functioning level, not grade or age level. Student assessments are completed using iReady software to diagnose strengths and weaknesses in both language arts and math. We use this data to track development throughout the year.
Our commitment to you
• Develop each student to their fullest academic potential.
• Ensure that your child is a better reader.
• Demonstrate and encourage respect, honor, integrity and responsibility, with the Bible as the foundation of the school.
• Continually pursue excellence in all areas.
Crossroad Christian Schools are members of SACS (AdvancED) and are currently in the process of full accreditation. Accreditation with this prestigious organization is designed to help educational institutions increase their ongoing performance efforts for the benefit of their students.
Our transcripts are accepted by both public and private schools or colleges.
