As stated in our philosophy, Crossroads is committed to “the development of each student’s physical well-being and full human potential.” From grades five to 12, the Athletics program inspires students to pursue competitive team sports, furthering friendships, building character on and off the field and promoting school and individual pride. For those who participate in interscholastic athletics, the experience is as much a part of their education as any other subject in school. The athletics venues are classrooms of another name, where outstanding educators called coaches guide student-athletes to a greater understanding of themselves, their peers and their chosen sport.
