Crossroads School’s growth over the last three decades is striking. While Crossroads was founded on big ideas like student-centered education and whole-child development, the initial scale of the operation was decidedly small.
The numbers show the School’s consistent expansion of innovative programming and demonstrate its founding commitment to a socially, economically and racially diverse student body. The consistent growth is a testament to the School’s philosophy as a foundation both strong and flexible enough to withstand the pressures of increasing enrollment, and to the leadership that has kept the philosophy at the forefront of decision-making for fifty years.
While the evolution that these figures show may be impressive, the only real way to measure the School’s success is in the impact it has had on students’ lives. Many alumni say their years at Crossroads were transformational. Fifty years later, the story of the School’s development is most apparent in the people whose lives have been shaped by their Crossroads education.
