The mission of the school is summed up in its motto, "Transforming lives for the glory of God." California Crosspoint High School wants students to become not just "smarter" or "better," but different. Transformation means a complete change of character from the inside out, and the school believes this takes place when there is a change in a person's nature and character. That is why the school emphasizes spiritual development and maturity, which leads to a change in character which ultimately will lead to academic, personal, and professional success. The high percentage of California Crosspoint High School students who become successful, influential, and contributing members of society is evidence that the school is accomplishing its vision of producing leaders who will impact the world for good.

Since its inception in 1979, every graduate of California Crosspoint High School has gone on to college or military service. The college preparatory program currently sees three-fourths of its students graduate as Advanced Placement Scholars, over one-half as California Interscholastic Federation Scholar Athletes, and one-third eventually go on to graduate level studies.

The private, Christian school with an open and inclusive admissions policy is known for having high expectations in academics and character, accepting no excuses for lack of achievement, and cultivating a loving and supportive school community that goes the extra mile for one another. The result is a learning environment where students are on task, highly engaged, physically safe, emotionally secure, and thoroughly prepared for whatever life has in store for them.

The curriculum and program are designed so students will achieve to the best of their ability in every subject and discipline, and in all aspects of their life: academic, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual. Thus, students are engaged in a variety of programs, activities, sports, competitions, clubs, and service projects throughout the day, each day of the year.

Practical and relevant content, along with critical thinking, are constant instruction themes each class period. The school's new campus thus has industrial, technical, artistic, and culinary maker spaces. Entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, and leadership are incubated and cultivated, allowing each student to accomplish amazing things. The thriving school culture challenges students to dream big, pray often, work hard, and achieve great things for God's glory.
