* Head’s Note

This Friday, we celebrate a wonderful milestone for Crossroads: our twenty-fifth anniversary! To prepare for this event, a group of dedicated parents, teachers, staff, trustees, and an alumnus from one of our first graduating classes met throughout last spring and over the last several weeks to plan a celebration that reflects our school’s unique culture. The day will include community service activities, student performances, a parade, burying a time capsule, and other activities that will both surprise and delight. We hope you and your family will join us in the afternoon (please arrive by 3:45 pm if you would like to see the parade) as we reflect on how far our school has come and begin to envision our next quarter century.

Crossroads Academy Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration


We warmly welcome the entire Crossroads community to celebrate twenty-five years of Strong Minds, Kind Hearts!

In September 1991, Crossroads Academy opened its doors–dedicated to the proposition that little people can think big thoughts and have a lot of fun doing it. In its first years as a K-3 day school, Crossroads had 15 students and 5 teachers in the basement of a church. Today, the school’s K-8 program has over 130 students on its beautiful 140-acre campus. Crossroads Academy is a model school with nationally ranked and award-winning students and faculty.

Crossroads will proudly celebrate twenty-five years of “Strong Minds and Kind Hearts” with an all-day series of events on our campus. The festivities will take place throughout the day with students and faculty participating in community service projects, activities, and games. Then promptly at 4:00 pm, the wider Crossroads community is invited to join us to continue the celebration with a school-wide parade and ringing of our school bell. At 4:30 pm, we will move to the gym for our main program, beginning with welcoming remarks and a keynote address by Crossroads founder Dr. Mary Beth Klee. We will also enjoy music, videotaped presentations, and of course, birthday cake! Our celebration will conclude with social time and refreshments hosted by the Crossroads Board of Trustees.
