JOIN OUR TEAM

We welcome a staff with backgrounds and experiences as diverse as those of our students. Our staff includes people of all ages and walks of life. What our team shares in common is a call to lift up struggling youth by meeting them where they are, loving them unconditionally, showing them grace and truth, and challenging them to make choices that honor their potential.

Together, we are working to transform and empower our students.

A UNIQUE APPROACH TO LEARNING

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. Our welcoming and safe family environment helps our students feel a genuine sense of belonging. We work with our students to find solutions and overcome their obstacles.

Faith-Based Character Education

The most important element to our success is our belief that through God, all things are possible.  Daily Family-Time and optional weekly God-Talk sessions are an important part of character development for our students.

Career Pathway Instructors

Our teachers are referred to as Career Pathway Instructors (CPI) because they are more than just teachers.  Our unique programs include both academics and job training.  Though some Career Pathway Instructors spend the majority of their time in the classroom working with students on academics, they also play a vital role in our Job Training Program.  Other CPI’s may work primarily with students on the Job Training Program as their main focus.  Each position is unique to the campus’s needs.  Each job posting will include information regarding the primary focus of the posted position.

Self-Paced Academics

We utilize an online learning program that is self-paced for our students.  Our teachers assist students with their classes and provide support when needed.

Quote from staff member about what being a teacher is like – we need one quote from a CPI that is primarily in the classroom and another from a CPI that works more with job training.
