* Head’s Note

In this spring’s issue of Independent School magazine, visiting journalists described the ambitious goal of the Singapore American School: become a “world leader in education, cultivating exceptional thinkers, prepared for the future.” As part of this goal, teams of educators at this school visited more than 100 schools in seven countries to discover and learn from best practices across the globe. After months of travel and discussions, they boiled their findings into three qualities they hoped to foster at their school in Singapore: a culture of excellence where every student learns at high levels; a culture of care where every student is known and advocated for; and a culture of possibilities where every student has the possibility for personalized learning.

Crossroads Academy Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration

On October 21, we warmly welcomed Crossroads community members 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 proudly celebrated twenty-five years of “Strong Minds and Kind Hearts” with an all-day series of events on our campus. The festivities took place throughout the day with students and faculty participating in community service projects, activities, and games. Then at 4:00 pm, the wider Crossroads community was invited to join us to continue the celebration with a school-wide parade and ringing of our school bell. Afterward, we moved to the gym for our main program, beginning with welcoming remarks and a keynote address by Crossroads founder Dr. Mary Beth Klee. We enjoyed the singing of our new school song “Strong Minds, Kind Hearts,” videotaped and congratulations presentations, and of course, birthday cake! Our celebration concluded with social time and refreshments hosted by the Crossroads Board of Trustees.

Thanks to all who attended and contributed to make our school’s twenty-fifth birthday so memorable!
