Middle & Upper School Admission

Core Values

List of 5 items.

  • A Humane Process

    We want this process to be as enjoyable, easy and accessible as possible. We greatly value an anxiety-free experience for students and we only require materials that are absolutely necessary for us to get to know your child and family.
  • Character and Academics

    Grades don’t tell the whole story of your child. In addition to a strong academic profile, we want to understand the strengths your child possesses that influence their academic achievement and social-emotional growth. We ask all applicants to complete the Character Skills Snapshot, a cutting-edge tool that we believe in. Character skills are as important as academic skills in life and school success.
  • Collaboration over Competition

    We’re different from other schools. We want to learn about your student in an authentic, collaborative environment with other students. Our Small Group Interview program is designed for students to work together in comfortable and intentional settings.
  • Student Voice

    Above all, Crossroads honors and nurtures each student’s voice and ideas. Your child will have a number of ways throughout our process to share who they are with us, including through their student questions, Small Group Interview, and Character Skills Snapshot.
  • Transparency

    The Admission process should not be mysterious or opaque. Our entire process is oriented to understanding your child and family, from the parent and student questions to the Character Skills Snapshot. We also openly share how the applicant review and selection processes work at Crossroads.
