Crossroads Academy at Hunting Park

Our Purpose:
Our Goal is to ensure that 100% of our stakeholders i.e. students, staff, guardians, and school supports can identify an action or believe that shows that they are cared for or cared about as an individual.

Our vision is to Reset Futures.

Our mission is to assist students to “get back” on track academically, socially, and behaviorally. Crossroads Academy is a structured educational program to help students in 3rd-grade through 6th-grade with behavioral and academic issues.  We work in partnership with the home school and the family: to return the student to their regular school, with improved academic progress and a self-understanding of how to make better decisions in regard to their behavior in the future.

What is Alternative Education?

Our Alternative Education program is designed to provide a more individualized educational program for an “at-risk” population of students in a less restrictive environment.  Program components include a structured classroom setting where students can receive educational services, counseling, individualized attention and support within a small classroom school setting.  The components of Crossroads Academy’s behavioral and academic structures offer students who need help a second chance at success in the classroom.

Teachers and classroom support staff at Crossroads Academy address both disruptive behavior and academic issues. Students learn to improve study, social skills, and address anger management while continuing regular school curriculum and completing the requirements for graduation.

What Can Students Expect?

Teachers and support staff at Crossroads Academy address both disruptive behavior and academic issues.  A lower student to staff ratio allows our teachers and staff the ability to offer more individualized attention.

Students learn to improve study habits, social skills and anger management techniques while continuing regular school curriculum and completing the requirements for graduation.
The students attend a full day of school and follow a similar curriculum that they would in a traditional middle or high school setting.

Crossroads Academy attempts to individualize the curriculum to meet each student’s abilities and needs.

Life skills training and counseling are another important part of the daily routine.

Additionally, an in-house incentive program offers students the challenge to improve grades, attendance and participate in community service.
