About
Welcome!
 
I am so glad you have chosen to consider us as your partner in the most important responsibility you have as a parent, preparing the next generation of responsible adults.  It is so exciting to be in the planning process for the upcoming school year. We admit new students who qualify in accordance with the Admission Policy and the date and time we receive each completed application until such time as classes are full. Once enrollment reaches capacity, all new applicants will be wait-listed.
 
Although we hope to partner with you, we want all parents to make this decision consciously through research and prayer.  Our Admissions process aims to help you reach a truly informed choice. Take time to exam our website and review the information provided about our curriculum tuition, and the processes we use in providing a superior education for your child. Please take the time to visit us – and any school you may be considering. Tours are a wonderful way to see the school, meet the staff and catch the vision.
 
As a parent, you are delegating the responsibility of educating your child to someone else. What are they teaching? Does it align with your values? Secular education not only teaches students that God is irrelevant, but sameness in curriculum, instruction and testing; thus removing independent thought and critical thinking skills. How true is this in the modern education system? 
 
Crossroads is not here to produce co-dependant students who conform to the norms of society, mass opinion, or what popular culture dictates as truth. We decline global education and bring education back to the individual. One of my favorite quotes is “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”  Crossroads develops students academically and socially into engaged, independent learners and competent decision makers with character focus on respect, ownership, accountability and responsibility.  Our motto is simple: academically advanced, globally prepared, courageously Christian.
 
Crossroads strives to serve parents who are seeking to educate their children in God's truth.  At Crossroads, we will faithfully provide a challenging and enriched college preparatory Christ‐centered education.
 
Again, thank you for your interest in considering Crossroads your school of choice.  
I look forward to meeting you and your family.
 
 
Sincerely,

Crossroads Christian School is a career and college-preparatory Christian school. We value a learning environment that considers individual student needs while encouraging growth academically, spiritually, emotionally and socially.  CCS is a private part-time Christian School that provides a one-on-one and small group learning environment that supports a students’ home-centered education.  On-campus classes meet two to four days per week, with at-home learning occurring on the alternate days.

With instruction and guidance from experienced, degreed and certified teachers, it offers the unique opportunity for the one-on-one instruction that is so productive in a homeschool environment, while encouraging socialization and interaction with instructors and peers.  Combined Schooling Options include: Part Time Enrollment, Full Time Enrollment, Extended Enrollment and Dual Credit Enrollment. In addition to enrollment options, students enrolled may choose the college bound or career (non-college bound) track and have access to participate in select extra-curricular activities, mission trips, etc.  

Because homeschools in Texas are private schools and are not regulated by the state, CCS Homeschool students have unlimited opportunities for coursework and electives. In order to ensure that CCS Homeschool students have comparable accountability and privileges as the students in the traditional setting, Crossroads Christian School has set the necessary standards to keep the program accountable.

Inspiring leadership as well as learning, CCS is a quality alternative to the educational concerns we face today.  Our roles as mentors and educators offer a level of individualized care that no other school can provide as we foster individual achievement through flexible, personalized learning.  We provide a structured, interactive, self-paced education where each student has a curriculum based on his or her individual educational needs and academic goals.  From Modified to Advanced Placement courses, every student will have the opportunity to succeed.

CCS is a non-denominational private homeschool that will transform the lives of students both academically and spiritually. Our program is not a child-care facility, day-care center, or licensed before-school or after-school program nor do we offer child-care services. We conduct background checks for all program employees and volunteers who work in our program.

CCS is a THSC Partner Home School Group

The Texas Home School Coalition provides a wealth of information for the homeschool community and more info can be found on their website at www.thsc.org.

Home School Terminology

THSC definition of a home schooled student:
A home schooled student predominantly receives instruction in a general, elementary or secondary education program that is provided by the parent—or a person standing in parental authority—in or through the child’s home [Texas Education Code 29.916 (a)].

The parent or person standing in parental authority might contract with outside sources in order that the student receives additional instruction. For example, a private tutor, co-op class or a college class. However, this source or these sources do not circumvent the parent’s role in determining the overall success or failure of the student.

Home school group:
All home school groups on our list seek to serve families who meet the definition of home schooling. This means their children participate in the group, but the group will not attempt to become an authority over the student’s education, per the definition of home schooling. THSC Partner Groups meet criteria as defined on THSC Types of Groups.

Private school:
Private school is a broad category of describing any non-public school. This includes traditional accredited private schools that require daily attendance and tuition, unaccredited private schools which are similar but not subject to the same accreditation requirements, home schools which are a type of private school but not regulated the same way as other types of private school, and other options that are a hybrid of these different types. For example, in a university model school, a student might attend the school 2-3 days per week and then be schooled at home for the rest of the week.
