Our Story

Since 2003, the Crossing has provided an avenue for educational success, specifically designed for students who struggle in a traditional school environment.  Our Founder, Rob Staley, a former Principal of  Concord High School in Elkhart, was passionate about making a difference in the lives of teens looking for a fresh start. He started out with a handful of students and a dream of helping them navigate challenges to find success in life and learn through academics, job training,  and faith-based character education.  Our students come from all corners of the educational landscape.  In recent years, the Crossing has developed Career Pathway Programs for students who need a practical hands-on education.  Our welcoming and safe family environment helps our students feel a genuine sense of belonging. 


With an average 1:10 teacher-to-student ratio, teachers can spend more time working one-on-one with students.

Job Training

The Job Training Program provides hands-on work experience and soft skills training to prepare students for a career

Faith-Based Character Education

Our Faith-Based Character Education program includes 30 minutes each day to share life together during our “Family-Time”.  Once a week, we offer an optional session called “God-Talk” where students are given the opportunity to grow in their faith walk.  Staff also engage with students during the evenings and weekends to promote unity and support.
