What is the check-in process for an adult wanting to enter the school campus? Every visitor is screened in our Front Office using their government issued driver’s license. Our staff are immediately alerted if an individual is identified as a risk. Those who clear the screening process are issued a printed badge, including the person’s photo, reason for visit, destination, and date/time of entry. The badge adds an extra layer of security during this Covid season, because it allows others to see the visitor’s photo as their face may be covered by a mask.
Does Crossroads offer grants for families who want a Christian education but can’t afford private school tuition? Yes! Anyone is able to apply for our financial aid program, although we do reserve awards for families who have the greatest financial need. If you’d like to learn more, click here.
What resources do you have for first-year families? The Campus Life page on our website is a great online resource for first-year families. There’s info about uniforms, supplies, daycare, absences, FACTS, and you’ll find the Parent/Learner Handbook there too! Click here to check it out!
How can I get access to a Calendar of Events? The school calendars for all grade levels can be found on our website. Click here for a direct link to the Events page.
What other ways do you communicate important info regarding school or classroom activities? Our Week at a Glance emails are sent every Sunday afternoon to the families of Early Education, Elementary and Middle School learners. High School learners and their families receive the CCHS Classic, a learner-led publication, every Sunday afternoon. You’ll want to look there to stay “in the know” with important information to get you through the week. If you’re not currently receiving these emails, but would like to, please send an email to: email@example.com.
Do facilitators provide communications to parents about what’s happening in the classroom? We use Canvas to communicate about your learner’s grades, assignments, announcements and deadlines. Facilitators are also happy to answer any questions you may have via email! Parents, you have your own account, separate from your learner’s Canvas account, which is linked to each of your learner’s classes. Here’s your log-in page. Your username is your: FirstnameLastname (example: JohnSmith).
Can I get help navigating Canvas? Absolutely! We have a number of tutorials to help you find your way around. This link will direct you to these step-by-step guides. You can also contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the best way to get an update on my learner’s progress (academic, social, spiritual, etc…)? Canvas is the best way to track your learner’s academic progress. Facilitators will gladly connect with you about non-academic questions or concerns, as well! Remember, you can contact your learner’s facilitator directly via email, so please feel free to reach out any time.
Does Crossroads offer Christian counseling? Yes! Crossroads offers a variety of programs to help you and your family members, of any age, navigate the season you’re in. Virtual counseling sessions are also available. Click here to get started.

Do you have volunteer opportunities for my learner? Can those hours be applied to our family’s mandatory volunteer hour balance? Yes, we have serving opportunities your entire family can get involved in! Follow this link to get the whole gang into the Christmas spirit! We’ll continue to seek out volunteer opportunities like these throughout the year, as regulations allow. Due to current restrictions, mandatory volunteer hours for the ‘20-’21 school year are on hold.
Are there still opportunities to assist/volunteer in the classroom? Although visitors are currently not allowed on campus due to the waiver, families can still be involved in meaningful and creative ways! The CCS Parent Team will continue to spearhead opportunities to partner in projects and celebrations throughout the school year, including Amazon Wishlists for classroom activities and treats to celebrate the holidays! Updates on these projects can be found in the Parent Team sections of the Week at a Glance and CCHS Classic! For more information, please contact the Parent Team at email@example.com.
Does Crossroads offer tutoring? At this time, CCS does not have a defined Tutoring program that we sponsor and run from our campus. If you are seeking a tutor, please contact a local program, such as Sylvan Learning, Children’s Tutoring Services, etc.
Will we see more options for electives? How about a second language offering? Currently, electives are only offered at the High School level. We are considering the elective option for our Middle School once we move away from our COVID-19 restrictions.
Will after school programs be returning? Currently, after school programs are not being offered. This program will be considered once we move away from our COVID-19 restrictions.
What kind of sports programs do you offer in MS & HS? Will these programs be expanding? The Middle School regularly offers girls volleyball, flag football, and cross country in the fall, girls softball and boys baseball in the winter, girls basketball, boys basketball, soccer, in-line hockey, and track and field in the spring. During this COVID year, CCMS plans to offer each of these sports, pending league participation and county regulations. We are not currently planning to add any additional sports in the near future.
The High School regularly offers cross country, girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, softball, and golf. During this COVID year, CCHS plans to offer girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, and golf, pending county regulations. In the near future, we would hope to relaunch our soccer, baseball, and football programs.
What are the benefits of enrolling my high schooler concurrently and earning college credit while still in high school? Is this program mandatory for all learners? CCS is proud to offer an incredible optional Concurrent Course program through an exclusive partnership with Hope International University, saving learners (and their families) both time and money! This program allows learners to earn up to 55 college credits (approximate to an Associates Degree), alongside their CCHS peers, from their CCHS facilitators, while also earning honors credit for that content area. Additionally, these courses are offered at a phenomenal rate, which would save learners approximately $58,500, as compared to traditional credits through HIU!
