K-12 Wait Pool FAQs

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • Is the Wait Pool ranked?

    No. The Wait Pool is an unranked group of applicants. Should an opening become available in your grade, we will reassess the makeup of the grade and find an applicant who best fills the opening.
  • How long will the wait be?

    Because openings do not all come at the same time, you can choose to remain in the Wait Pool for as long as you would like. You can indicate how long you would like to wait in our pool in the Google Doc link provided in your decision letter.
  • How will you notify us if our child is accepted from the Wait Pool?

    We will call you immediately using the main phone number listed in your application. If we are unable to reach you at this number, we will try other numbers that are listed. We will not release the spot to another child unless all attempts to reach you by phone and email are unsuccessful.
  • Should I call Crossroads to check on our Wait Pool status?

    Please be assured that you will remain in our Wait Pool for as long as you indicate in your response. Once you have let us know that you'd like to remain in the Wait Pool, we understand that you would take a spot should one come available.
  • What do we do if we choose to enroll at another school?

    Please let us know as soon as you can if you enroll your child in another school. Please notify us using the Google Form included in your Ravenna notification, or via email or phone. For Elementary applicants use elementaryadmissions@xrds.org, for Middle School applicants use msadmissions@xrds.org and for Upper School applicants use usadmissions@xrds.org.
