The Crossing School of Business & Entrepreneurship is announcing our newest campus at 2500 North Elgin Street in Muncie, Indiana. Located in the former Muncie Community Schools Career Center, the new location will feature self-paced academics, student-led businesses, job training, and character education.

The Crossing offers:

  • Small classes with a Teacher-Student ratio of 1:10 allow teachers to provide additional support to students who struggle in large classes or require more one-on-one attention.  
  • Faith-based character education guides students through the difficult situations and choices they face in order to equip them with a solid foundational belief system to guide them through life after high school.
  • A hands-on approach to job training allows students to learn soft and hard skills that prepare them for their future careers.

The Muncie area holds a special place for our administrative team at the Crossing. Board member Lyle Fisel, Ball State Class of 1972, Ceo Ryan Hill, Ball State Class of 2007, and our founder, Rob Staley received his Masters in School Administration from Ball State.

We’ve worked closely with the Muncie Community School’s board to make this dream come to life. We will have an ongoing enrollment of 40 – 50 students in our first year, in order to maintain the highest quality services to our students and families.


Since 2003, The Crossing has been giving struggling high school students a second chance at an education.  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 their challenges and succeed through academics, job training,  and faith in God. 

The Crossing School of Business & Entrepreneurship is a state-accredited, faith-based high school serving students who may have struggled with traditional classes, attendance, or not fitting in.

Our classes are small, with an average of 10–12 students per teacher. We are a work-based learning high school where each student progresses through a level system based on the work they accomplish in academics and job training. Our students get the help they need when they need it, creating individualized plans as well as the opportunity to work at their own pace. 

In our job training programs, our students will learn real-world skills that will boost their earning potential. High school graduates earn an average of $260,000 more over their lifetime than those who never finished. We offer students the opportunity to participate in hands-on job training through student school-based enterprises, micro-businesses, satellite teams at local businesses, and pre-apprenticeships. Not only will they develop technical abilities, but also “soft skills” that will make them more valuable to employers.  Crossing graduates earn as much or more as their peers after high school.
