Applying to Kindergarten

Crossroads will begin accepting applications for admission to the 2017-18 school year August 1, 2016. Below are details for every step of the application process to help you plan and prepare.  Our team is happy to answer any questions you have regarding our school program or the admission process.  You may contact the Elementary School admissions team at 310-582-4109 or via email. We look forward to getting to know your family better!

If you are a sibling, faculty/staff or legacy family, the application process is slightly different. Please click here to access your specific application steps. Note: you will need your Crossroads website login information. 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
    You must begin your Core Application Forms before you are eligible to register for an Elementary School tour.  We are offering six tour dates in September and October open to any kindergarten families who have started their Core Application Forms. You do not need to have completed the forms and paid the application fee to participate. All remaining tour dates are only open to those families who have successfully submitted their Core Application Forms. 
    Your Core Application Forms must be submitted before you are able to self-register for 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. 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. All custodial parent/guardians must take a tour prior to the interview. 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. Register for a Parent/Guardian Interview
    Please self-register for a parent/guardian interview with a member of our Admissions team via Ravenna HUB.  All custodial parent/guardians must participate together in one 30 minute session, offered September through January. Remember to schedule your interview date after your tour date. Please keep in mind that the interview is for adults only.

  5. Complete the Preschool Evaluation Form
    A hard copy of the required Preschool Evaluation form will be sent to your child's preschool by the Elementary School Admissions office the week of November 28, 2016. Your preschool will then mail the completed form directly to Ravenna Solutions, where it will be scanned and uploaded to your child's online application.

  6. 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.
