CBA is a wonderful school where students are given not only an excellent education but also a wonderful foundation in moral truths and Biblical principles. Our family has enrolled in CBA for many years, and we love it! I could not recommend this school any more highly!! P.S. I have a Senior this year. You do NOT have to get a GED to enroll in a college - a CBA diploma is acceptable! The administration stays in touch with state colleges to ensure that the high school students graduate with the needed credits. HOWEVER, ALL public and private school students must take the ACT test to enroll in almost any college nationwide. CBA strongly urges our seniors to take this exam during their senior year. A GED is not required.

My daughter will be entering her fourth year at Crossroads. I chose this school over my alma mater (another "Christian" private school) because, although I loved my school at the time, over the years it had become no more than a place parents sent their children to get the out of public school, not a place where they received an outstanding and thorough Christian education. Crossroads has much stricter standards than I hold for myself as a Christian (women don't wear pants, etc.), but I've never felt anything but acceptance from the staff of Crossroads. They do ask ladies to wear a dress to school functions, but no one is turned out the door if someone forgets. There are so many examples of how my child has been taken care of by her teachers and the staff that I wouldn't know where to begin. Often I don't even know of these instances unless my child casually tells me, and I am always astounded. The staff truly treats these children like they are their own. As far as the education is concerned, I was valedictorian of my class and brought up with the same A Beka curriculum and advanced into second year status in college. I recommend the school and the curriculum.

As a parent, I couldn't be more pleased with CBA. The teachers and staff are dedicated to giving my children the best learning experience possible. Every student is known and loved personally by every staff member (my children even talk about how nice the lunch lady is!). The curriculum is challenging for the students, but gives them a very solid foundation. My child attended public kindergarten and struggled with reading and phonics. When he entered first grade at CBA, his teacher spent hours working with him to help him learn to read. I'm grateful for CBA. To the student who posted below - CBA IS a school built on Biblical standards and principles, but those standards are not shoved down anyone's throat, nor is a student looked down upon if every standard is not adopted personally by every family. If you really disagree with the standards, you don't have to attend school there. To post what was posted about the academic quality of a school because you do not agree with their beliefs - I believe that's called slander. If you are a parent wanting your child to receive an excellent edudation and learn to develop discipline and character, CBA is the school for your family.

As a previous student I hate writing this, and yet I feel I must. Spiritually-this school is decent, but they teach many baptist traditions as if they are in the Bible, when they aren't.(Women must wear skirts and you must go to the altar every time there is an oppurtunity) Academically-there is a pathetic amount of emphasis put on academics. Students are given study sheets for tests which practically have the entire test for them, "Bonus questions" are given which have nothing to do with the subject being tested upon. Proper grammar and punctuation was never checked for in essays(if we are actually assigned even one during the whole school year.) You get a pass on homework if you were out soul winning or card selling. They tell students that we are getting an exceptional education that exceeds that of public school, but I find myself struggling in school because I was not taught how to study, proper grammar, etc. I hope a parent or teacher reads this and sees what need to be done. The school has potential, but currently I can not recommend it at all.

my child attends this school. he totally loves it. everyday he comes home telling me about how much fun he has had at his school. its rare these days to find a school that truley cares about your child and makes learning fun. it unbelieveable how much my boy has learned in such a short period of time!

I love this school. The teachers and administration appear geniune. My children love this school and the teachers. My children have requested to return to Crossroads no matter where we live. I love the curriculum and the spirit filled atmosphere. I am reassured as a parent that my children are safe and getting a good education, all at a price that I can afford.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
