Message from Brad Choyt, Head of School

Thank you for visiting Crossroads Academy’s website. We are a coeducational, independent day school in Lyme, NH, serving students from kindergarten through eighth grade. As you explore our website and learn about the exceptional community that brings to life the mission of our school, I hope you will enjoy browsing the information for prospective families, visiting faculty pages, and gaining a genuine sense of how we foster strong minds and kind hearts throughout our 140-acre campus in the Upper Valley.

Cultivating a love of learning through our Core Knowledge and Core Virtues Programs, our faculty and staff are skilled guides for every student’s educational journey. We are a school that encourages appropriate challenges within an environment filled with joy and passion for learning. Adults at Crossroads value and understand how students think and are motivated to foster self-confidence while fueling inquiry, engagement, and a deeper understanding of the world around us. These high standards for academics and character development are rooted in a shared purpose: Crossroads educators are dedicated to inspiring our students as they actively contribute to civic life and help shape a changing world. Our families choose Crossroads because they want to be part of a community that supports and nurtures the best possible learning environment for their children.

As a parent, I know there is no more important decision than where we send our children to school. It is an investment in their lives and in our future. If you are visiting our website for the first time, we are delighted that you are considering Crossroads for your son or daughter and hope this site begins to capture the flavor of our school. But to truly gain a sense of Crossroads, please visit us in Lyme. Request a tour. Observe some classes. Meet members of our faculty and staff. And speak to our engaged students. Every day, they make our mission come to life in vital ways we could never have predicted. And every day, they put their stamp on our school, sharing their opinions and formulating ideas while helping all of us become better learners.

And during your visit, please stop by the Klee Building to say hello. I look forward to meeting you and believe you will quickly discover what makes the Crossroads experience so dynamic and compelling.

Yours truly,

Brad Choyt
