If you need assistance with your login information or aren't sure you have a username/password, please work through the retrieval process here.
  1. Create a Ravenna HUB Student Profile
    By creating a Student Profile in Ravenna HUB, you are able to manage your online application and submit and track all supplemental admissions forms. You are also able to register for optional admissions events prior to submitting an application. You can create a Student Profile by completing the following steps:

    • Create a Ravenna HUB username and password
    • Select Add Student (Basic Information, Current School, Household Information, Photo)
    • Go to School Directory
    • Select Crossroads School For Arts and Sciences

  2. Submit the Core Application Forms
    Once you have successfully created a student profile in Ravenna HUB, you are now ready to complete your Core Application Forms. Your Core Application Forms include the Application for Admission as well as the Parent/Guardian Statement. Core Application Forms are due on November 4, 2016 and must be submitted before you are able to self-register for a parent/guardian tour and a parent/guardian interview. All remaining supplemental forms are due January 10, 2017.

  3. Register for a Parent/Guardian Tour
    Please self-register for an Elementary School tour via Ravenna HUB. Designated tours for families applying to grades 1-5 will be offered in January. Led by parent/guardian docents, the campus tour takes you through classrooms where you will hear from teachers and observe Crossroads students. You will also meet the Managing Director of Elementary School Admissions as well as the Director of the Elementary School. Please make every effort to attend the tour date for which you are registered. Due to our limited capacity for Elementary School tours, we cannot guarantee a new tour date should you miss your scheduled tour. Tours are for adults only.

  4. Submit an Administrative Recommendation Form
    We require one (1) administrative recommendation form for grades 1-5. This form may be completed by a Head of School, Academic Counselor or Dean. The administrative recommendation form is a “delegated form.” What this means is that you will delegate the form via Ravenna HUB and the administrator will be emailed a secure link to complete the form directly online. This form must be submitted by January 10, 2017.

  5. Submit a Teacher Recommendation Form
    We require one (1) teacher recommendation form for grades 1-5. We strongly prefer your child’s current teacher to complete this form. The teacher recommendation form is a “delegated form.” What this means is that you will delegate the form via Ravenna HUB and the teacher will be emailed a secure link to complete the form directly online. This form must be submitted by January 10, 2017.

  6. Submit a Transcript Request Form
    Please print, sign and submit the Transcript Request Form to your child’s school. The school will be responsible for mailing the requested academic records to Ravenna Solutions via USPS. Upon receipt of your child’s transcripts, Ravenna Solutions will scan and upload these items into your child’s online application. Your child’s transcripts must be received by January 10, 2017.

  7. Register for the Visit Morning
    Your child will attend a Visit Morning on Friday, February 17, 2017 from 8-10 a.m. Through participation in individual and group activities, children will be able to meet the teachers of their grade level as well as other children applying to their same grade. Children will also participate in a few academic assessments designed to evaluate skills in those areas. Please register via Ravenna HUB no later than Friday, February 10, 2017.

    Participation is a requirement of the application process. If you are an international or out of state applicant and need to make special Visit Morning arrangements, please contact the Elementary School Admissions office by phone (310-582-4109) or email (elementaryadmissions@xrds.org). There will be no make-up Visit Morning for California residents.

  8. Apply for Tuition Reduction (Financial Aid)
    If you would like to apply for tuition reduction (financial aid), please make sure that you have checked off that area on your application form. All families seeking aid must complete the Parents’ Financial Statement for the applicant child at sss.nais.org (Crossroads School code is 2676). Please scan and upload your 2015 Federal Tax Return to the sss.nais.org website by January 12, 2017. Your 2016 Federal Tax Return must be scanned and uploaded to the sss.nais.org website by February 8, 2017. Please keep in mind that tuition reduction decisions cannot be made on incomplete files, so be sure and submit your materials in a timely fashion.
