Crossroads High School is a classical Christian school which prepared students for college and life. Coursework is chosen in order to provide students with knowledge and skills that will prepare them to learn, think, and communicate well, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Crossroads High School is accredited by the Classical Latin School Association (CLSA). CLSA is an association of elementary and secondary schools working to promote the transmission of the culture of the Christian West to the next generation through the Classical Core Curriculum TM, which focuses on the content study of history, literature, and the great ideas, with an emphasis on basic skills and the liberal arts, and a special emphasis on the study of Latin. The Classical Core Curriculum TM is a Latin-centered classical Christian curriculum implemented at member schools. CLSA academic accreditation is a way for schools to internally document their viability as academically successful classical Christian schools by holding themselves externally accountable and to verify to their respective communities of families that they are offering their students a superior classical Christian education. This accreditation provides an external verification and accountability of the academic integrity of our school.
Academic records from grades 9 through 12 will be used as criteria for graduation. In order to graduate from Crossroads High School:
- Students must earn twenty credits.
- Students must earn a minimum of one credit in Bible, four credits in English, one credit in fine arts/humanities, three credits in history, two credits in Latin, three credits in math, and two credits in science.
- Students who are transferring to CHS from another school or home school may receive credit for work completed previously when CHS receives sufficient documentation of their previous work. The administrator is authorized to accept this work toward CHS graduation requirements provided the work is of similar nature, i.e., similar course objectives and similar time of study.
Crossroads High School will maintain a record of each course the student completes and the grade received for that course.
Credits earned at CHS may or may not be recognized by public high schools should your child choose to transfer. Be aware that your child may not be able to obtain a diploma from a public high school, just as would be the case if you attended another private school or home schooled your child and subsequently enrolled him or her in a public high school.
Colleges, however, view the transcript on equal terms with other private high schools. Colleges are eager to enroll well-educated private school students. Crossroads graduates have been accepted to and are currently successful in the colleges of their choice. Qualifying students are eligible for college academic scholarships as well.
Students are required to complete 25 clock hours of service for each year they are enrolled at CHS. Service denotes any volunteer (unpaid) activity done to benefit people outside one's family. Service hours are to be recorded on the Service Hours form, which must be signed by the student and parent and turned in to the principal before graduation.
