Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences says

Crossroads School came into being in 1971 to provide a new approach to education. It was founded by a small group of educators and parents, led by co-founders Dr. Paul Cummins and Dr. Rhoda Makoff, whose goal was to provide a diverse student body a coeducational college preparatory education combining academic excellence with a comprehensive fine and performing arts program, community service, athletic challenge, and environmental education. Crossroad is a distinctly progressive school offering an intellectually demanding and creative curriculum within a supportive, personal environment that has at its base the notion of safety, equity, and inclusion for all. Crossroads strives to help each student develop a personal commitment to learning, a respect for independent thinking, a sense of social commitment, an appreciation of the valuable traditions of the past, and a concern for the future. Crossroads students are provided a spectrum of program opportunities including visual arts, literature, language, music, math, drama, history, science, dance, athletics, computer science, community service, and environmental/experiential education.


Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences received a Noodle Innovative School Award in 2015.

Human development is a defining component of Crossroads' curriculum across all divisions.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
