- For Parents
Crossroads School, Inc. was founded in 1977 by Carol Garnett, a Masters Level Special Education teacher. After twenty-one years of service, Ms. Garnett retired and Gila Arnoni, Ph.D. stepped in as the Head of School. Motivated by her wish to meet the needs of as many students as possible, Dr. Arnoni created a board of directors, and in 2004 the school was granted its 501(c) (3) not-for-profit status. To this day, Dr. Arnoni continues to advance the Crossroads mission and upholds the belief that students with learning differences will flourish when provided with personalized curriculum, continuous encouragement, a low student to teacher ratio, flexibility, a rewards system and creative teaching methods.
Dr. Arnoni, an alumni parent, holds a Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology and a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology. Dr. Arnoni has sixteen years of experience in education as well as experience in research and program development. Under her leadership, Crossroads School, Inc. has continued to thrive. Enrollment has steadily increased leading to the purchase of additional property, the development of a Twice Exceptional (2E) program, and the opening of a new high school. Today, Crossroads School is recognized as a leader in the specialized education of students with learning differences.
Crossroads School, Inc. prepares students with learning differences (K-12th) to integrate into a conventional school or college by facilitating maximum academic and social potential in an emotionally safe and supportive environment.
