18 Jan Crossing Considers Opening Additional Schools
The Crossing National board of Directors are in constant dialog about a strategic growth plan of expanding the Crossing model across the United States. At the present time, six schools are hosted across northern Indiana. In order for a new school to open in a community, there must be two components that endorse the Crossing; the community which provides a facility and operational costs and the public school corporation which contracts with the Crossing to supplement student tuition. The Crossing is committed to serving as an extension of public schoolsby servicing those students who have not been successful in a traditional school environment. This would include students who are failing academically, feel uncomfortable socially, have been expelled, have experienced encounters with the law or are just looking for an alternative learning environment.
The Crossing model focuses on 4 core areas: Academics, Character, Leadership, and Careers. Each of these core areas has a strategic plan and is the focus of all board and staff meetings.
At the present time, the Crossing is in dialog with several school corporations about starting a school next fall. Although no schools have made a commitment for next year, the following school corporations are looking at the Crossing as an option for their students: Wawasee Community Schools, Warsaw Community Schools, Frankfort Community Schools, South Bend Community Schools, East Allen County Community Schools.
If you are interested in starting a Crossing Educational Center in your community, please feel free to contact our corporate office at 574-533-3429 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
