- For Parents
Henry David Thoreau said "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him keep step to the music he hears, however measured or far away." This is the embodiment of Crossroads School's philosophy which is to respect each child's learning needs and to teach them accordingly.

The Crossroads High School student is a typical teenager who has one or more learning difference and is having difficulty learning in a traditional school setting. Crossroads students come from a wide range of backgrounds, skill levels and previous school experiences and have diagnoses such as: attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, communications disorder or auditory/visual processing disorder.
Our innovative teaching methods, along with our dedicated faculty, help each student incorporate executive functioning training, social skills, and self-advocacy. The strong relationships that develop promote a learning environment where students feel safe and valued. Crossroads School’s academic program initially looks like any other with English, math, social studies, science and electives. However, when you look inside the classroom you see a remarkable difference in the teaching of content, process and product.
The Crossroads "Out of the Box" teaching philosophy is based on the following tenets: We recognize that each child is unique, and children learn in different ways. We respect these different learning styles and seek to accommodate them. We strive to foster healthy interpersonal relationships with peers and adults. We encourage students to reach their highest level of achievement within the frame work of their capabilities and talents.

“From my son’s experience at Crossroads, I have learned that Learning Differences must be seen as opportunities, not obstacles. As educators and parents, it must be our challenge to see that the dreams of these ‘different learners’ are nurtured.” - father of a 4th grade student
“Crossroads has been such a blessing to our family. Here, my children are expected to learn, not simply ‘keep up’ with the work. The Learning Differences are understood and now school is a place they go to with excitement, rather than dread.”
- parent of 4th & 6th grade students
“It is not a ‘one-size fits all’ program. The individual attention, small classroom size and the social skills they teach our children sets the Crossroads program apart.”
- parent of a 6th grade student
“He finally found a place where he ‘fits’ and his learning differences don’t define him.”
- mother of a 10-year old student
