Building on our success with Crossroads Academy – Central Street and Crossroads Academy – Quality Hill, both of which have generated a groundswell of demand from the community, Crossroads Charter Schools will launch Crossroads High School in the fall of 2018.
Crossroads Charter Schools was founded with the intent of reducing the gap between the number of “high quality seats” in classrooms within the Kansas City Public School boundaries, and the number of children seeking those seats. In our short history, our students have made strong academic gains and our school has built an excellent reputation among the community as a place of high quality instruction and innovation in learning.
By opening Crossroads High School, (9-12th grades) Crossroads Charter Schools will create an additional 500 seats in our downtown classrooms. In addition, enrollment at each elementary school will grow to 422 students. In the year 2025 all schools will be at capacity and collectively serve 1,344 students in grades K-12, all in Downtown Kansas City.
The Crossroads High School model will put the students in the driver’s seat of their learning, anchoring personalized, project-based learning experiences within the “Downtown KC” classroom. The school will offer a full complement of academically rigorous courses, electives, and extracurricular activities.
All students who graduate 8th grade from Crossroads Charter Schools will have guaranteed admission in the new high school and additional openings will be available for students across the downtown region and KCPS boundaries. With our welcoming school culture we seek to foster a diverse student population that reflects the racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of our larger community.
Together with our downtown community, Crossroads Charter Schools has made a significant impact in downtown Kansas City. We are excited and humbled by the opportunity to extend the opportunities of a Crossroads education to students in the high school grades.
