The Core of Life at Crossroad Academy Charter School

The Core of Life at Crossroad Academy Charter School

Crossroad Academy Charter School of Business (CACS) aims to provide a rigorous educational program that launches students into twenty-first century learners. Core values are the heartbeat of Crossroad Academy: Inspire. Achievement. Making a difference. Character. Accountability. Commitment. Service. These core values embody life at CACS. Crossroads takes the business of education seriously and ensures that student learning is not confined to the classroom. Faculty and staff make a concentrated effort to capitalize on "teachable moments," those moments when valuable lessons occur beyond the classroom. The mission at CACS is to "develop children’s excellence and success," and the vision is a supportive and appropriate learning environment with an engaging curriculum and relevant educational experiences. Students learn important life-long skills by working independently and cooperatively in all academic areas, including foreign language, physical education, and technology. Crossroads maintains that consistent high expectations and mutual respect foster self-discipline and lead to increased student performance. As a high-performing charter school in a highly-impoverished community, Crossroads is frequently asked, "What is your recipe for success?" It’s simple. Students are the main ingredients. Crossroads takes a diverse population of students with varying academic capabilities, adds the most hardworking, dedicated, teachers, and mixes in a researched-based curriculum, rigorous instruction, and continuous progress monitoring and allows the learning to marinate and bake, then garnishes the whole with highly-involved parents & serves with LOVE.
