- For Parents
Dear Prospective Family,
My name is Tami Riggs and as the Director of Admissions, I have the honor of working with families in need of finding the best possible school for their children.
Seeking an appropriate placement for your child can be a daunting task and we are here to help you through this process. We will provide you with the support and information that you need to make an informed decision for your child.
For more information, please contact me to schedule an interview and personal tour of the school.
I look forward to working with you. Thank you for your interest in Crossroads School, Inc.
When a parent first calls the school we spend quite some time on the telephone getting to know their child's needs and giving a short overview of the school. If the child sounds as if they would benefit from the school's program, parents are scheduled to come for a personal tour. During this time, parents/guardians share additional information about their child and have the opportunity to ask questions and tour the school.
Following the parent interview, a one-day classroom visitation for the student is arranged. This visit allows the child to develop an idea of what a school day feels like and associated expectations. A visiting child is assigned a “buddy” for the day and they are responsible for making the visiting child comfortable and guiding them through the day. This is a special privilege for our existing students and is carried out with great pride. In turn, the school’s faculty has an opportunity to informally assess the child's ability to work in a classroom environment, the manner in which they deal with his or her difficulties, and develop a general understanding of their academic and social abilities. At the end of the day, the faculty provides the parents/guardians with a review of the child’s day. A team comprised of the faculty associated with the child’s prospective placement meets to decide if a place is to be offered. If an offer is accepted, directions on how to access the admissions online portal are given. This system allows for the enrollment forms to be completed and all required documents to be up loaded and enrollment fees to be paid.
*Crossroads School welcomes all inquiries and accepts students year round if a suitable place is available.
*Returning students are given priority in the yearly enrollment process and then new applicants are taken on a first-come, first served basis.
Please contact our Director of Admissions for specific deadlines and details at 713-977-1221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Crossroads School has an established history of providing financial aid that can bridge the gap between what the family can afford and tuition. Priority is given to existing families since Crossroads is committed to ensuring that an existing student should not have to leave due to sudden financial distress of the family. Remaining aid funding is then distributed to incoming families in need.
Discussion and application for financial aid is conducted initially with the Admissions Director and then considered by the financial aid committee.
Crossroads School’s Immunization Policy is that every student enrolled at Crossroads School will be immunized against vaccine preventable diseases caused by infectious agents in accordance with the immunization schedule adopted by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Attendance at Crossroads School is contingent on students being current on all required immunizations.
Prior to the first day of school, all students must present valid written evidence from their treating physician (M.D. or D.O.), reflecting that all required immunizations have been received. The treating physician must be licensed to practice in the State of Texas and the physician’s license number must be reflected on the immunization documentation. The only exception to the foregoing requirement is a medical exemption signed by the student’s treating physician (M.D. or D.O.). All students requesting a medical exemption must present valid written evidence from their treating physician, reflecting the medical basis for the requested exemption. Crossroads School does not consider conscious-based exemptions or any other exemptions. Statement from the Texas Attorney General “Conscientious objections or waivers, which may be permissible for attendance in public schools, do not qualify as an exemption in Private Schools. A private school that does not accept state tax funds is not required to accept for enrollment a child who has received an exemption for the immunizations required by the Texas Health and Safety Code. (Atty. Gen. OP GA-0420)
Crossroads School admits students of any race, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
