The Crossing School of
Business & Entrepreneurship
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 through their challenges and find success through academics, job training, and faith in God. Our students come from all corners of the educational landscape. Many have struggled in traditional educational settings, wrestling with issues like poor academic performance, attendance, social conflicts, addiction, or behavioral problems. In recent years, the Crossing has also begun to serve students who need non-traditional Career Pathway Programs. Our welcoming and safe family environment helps our students feel a genuine sense of belonging. We work with our students to develop innovative competency-based education and career programs.
