Our Vision

Transforming lives through education by focusing on the heart and mind





The Crossing provides a state accredited academic education by maintaining a balance of certified teachers and professionals from a variety of backgrounds. We meet students where they are, build relationships with them, and equip them for the future through Job Training and Faith-Based Character Education.


our mission:

Empowering struggling students to become contributing members of their communities through academics, job training and faith-based character education.


When a student attends the Crossing, he or she is more than just another line in the enrollment logs. The Crossing is a FAMILY, and from the moment our students step through our doors for the first time, we treat them as members of our FAMILY, caring about their development in every area of their lives.
