This school is AMAZING! Teacher/student ratio is good. The uniformity of the school is good. The morale of the school is good. It's simply just a wonderful school. The principal is aware of each child on campus. She is involved with the kids throughout the school year as well. The teachers are God fearing and inspirational and are there to assist with any concern you have. Because it's a 60/40 there are many parents around campus and the environment feels friendly and safe. My children were academically prepared last year as well as spiritually fed--perfect combination in a school!! Love it!

We couldn t be happier! Hope Christian Academy was an answer to our prayers. It is a small school with sweet children and a staff who loves God and seeks to instill His values into the children s lives. The teachers are caring and because of the small classroom sizes, it allows them to truly get to know each of their students. The dedication and love I have seen poured out from the staff has been refreshing and encouraging. The students are a huge part of why we love this school! They are kind and well-mannered, you can tell they come from homes with parents who are truly invested in their lives. I regularly volunteered during recess last year and never heard one unkind word spoken, all the children regardless of age played together, and it was a joy to see. For us, it s the best of both worlds. Our child is able to socialize with other children of the same beliefs, participate in fun school related activities (crazy dress up days, musical plays, lego & jump rope club, prayer night, water day, ect) grow in their education (including PE, music, Spanish class) all while being able to stay with their family 2 extra days per week!

I currently have a 1st grader and 3rd grader who attend Hope Christian Academy. They are very different children in personality and academic skill but BOTH are thriving at this school. The class sizes are wonderful- no more than 16 kids in a room. The teachers are professional, highly skilled and extremely caring. This staff nurtures my children's faith by constantly pointing them back to God. I cannot say enough positives things about the staff and teacher at this school- they are people we greatly respect. I really enjoy the 2 days of home-based learning as well because I get time with my children that I wouldn't have if they were at school 5 days a week and it allows me to be very involved with their progress. We also love that parents are truly part of the community and are always welcomed on campus.

I have two children who attended HOPE Christian Academy. One is now graduating from high school and the other is entering her senior year in college. Their success in secondary schools is a direct reflection of the quality of education at HOPE. Not only were they perfectly prepared academically, they were equipped with a healthy sense of self-worth, a strong spiritual foundation, and, because of the two Home Based Learning Days each week, an understanding of the mechanics of study and self-motivation. Relationships are very important at HOPE and the community aspect is an environment that encourages students and supports families. Schools with this kind of "like-mindedness" among its staff, families and students are rare, and though it may take a few years of comparison elsewhere, It is not unusual for "graduated" students to return to visit the campus and remark about what a special place this was for them to grow up.

My children began attending HOPE Christian Academy when it was called Crossroads Community School and it has been an amazing school for our family for more than ten years. The community of believers that make up the families, the teachers and the administration defines a warm and inviting environment for children to learn academically at the highest level while still putting Christ-like character building first.

We love CrossRoads Community School. There is not another school like it in the East Valley. The model of 2 home school days and 3 days at school works great for our family. My boys get to experience the best of both worlds. I am able to spend 2 precious days with my kids at home and I have 3 days while they are at school to do all of the other things in life I need to do! The teachers are amazing and I feel like my boys are getting the best education possible!

Our granddaughters have gotten an A+ education at CRCS. I have been thrilled, as an educator myself, to view their excellent curriculum. The CRCS teachers challenge their students to excell with projects that stimulate their higher thinking skills. When CRCS students enter the public school in 9th grade, they are on grade level or above. I have had an opportunity to observe this with two granddaughters.

This unique school was the perfect fit for our two daughters. They have both now moved on to high school with great success. They were prepared in every way for the transition thanks to this marvelous educational concept that partners teachers with parents to equip their children with strong Christian values, confidence, and the tools to succeed academically.

We love the model this school uses. Students are in the classroom with a teacher three days a week and at home to do school on the other two. This provides our children with a classroom experience in which they interact with other students, teachers and staff and they also get to be home to learn with us on the other two days.

I love CRCS because it truly is a family. If someone is sick, hurting, or celebrating something joyful in life, the whole school comes alongside each family to help. The teachers care about each student and their family, and want to equip each child to go into the world a positive leader.

Crossroads' homeschool days are a great blessing for us. Insecure about developing an entire program on our own, we are so grateful for the provided curriculum and help. We can find any weak areas and give extra time to full understanding and comprehension. This is an excellent way to be involved in your child's education. The best of both worlds!

This is a very unique model of schooling and so far it has shown to be a school that values quality education and Christian character development within a very nurturing and safe environment. This is our first year and my son has done very well. He is excelling in his learning and has an excellent kindergarten teacher. Our Home Base Learning days, which are Mondays and Wednesdays, are good because it has allowed us to continue the nurturing of our son at an educational, spiritual and emotional level. We are very thankful to have Crossroads here in the valley and are blessed to have such an excellent school where our children not only flourish and excel academically but are also encouraged to model Christ's example in their daily living.

I have schooled three children at CRCS - experiencing all grades K5 through 8. What a wonderful school it is! I highly recommend it! One of our girls promoted from CRCS to a high school with an IB program; she did so well that she received top scholarships for the university of her choice! CRCS did a terrific job preparing her for that transition.

CrossRoads is an amazing school. It is unbelieveable how our children have grown spiritually and academically. I really believe this school invests and lays the groundwork for future leaders. All the parents on are on the same page and we all strive to give the best to each other and our children. I rate this school an A+++

This school is wonderful!! My children get to attend a school that fosters so many wonderful characteristics that we try to instill and emphasize in their daily lives. The educational excellence at this school is wonderful. The Home Based Learning days give us quality time with our children and allows us parents to be very involved with the curriculum as well as allowing us plenty of flexibility. The school model gives us the freedom and involvement of home schooling without the stress and allows our children to socialize, relate and befriend other students. The teachers are full of encouragement and love for the students. This we truly appreciate. The families here are very wonderful, caring Chritian families. They come together like family. The tuition for this school is lower than 5 day schools. Couple that with the Christian environment, excellent education and love my children recieve, It can't be beat!!!!

CRCS is a great school! We have had our children there since 2003. I am totally thankful for the extra time I am able to spend with my children. I didn't think I could ever home school on my own and CRCS allows me the opportunity to spend the time with them but now have to come up with all the curriculum. It is truly a blessing.

We have been educating our children at CrossRoads Community School for the past 6 years and currently have four children attending now. We could not be happier! We really value the quality education and character development that our children receive at this school. CrossRoads provides an emotionally, physically and spiritually nurturing environment that children flourish in. It is such a privilege and comfort to know that we have found our home in CrossRoads and do not have to constantly compromise or re-evaluate our educational plan for our family every year in an attempt to meet the diverse needs of our children. The small, intimate class sizes, caring teaching staff who genuinely love working with children, and the cultural diversity are among our favorite things about this awesome school. We are very blessed to have CrossRoads partner with us in educating our children.

There should be more schools like this one! Parents still play an active roll in their children's education, and the teachers are the best. You work very closely with your child's teacher and get to know all the other students and parents in the class. Small class sizes, and a real 'no student left behind' policy. PE, Music, Spanish, Science, Math Olympics, Spelling Bee, Art, Volleyball and Basketball teams. All the electives you could want for an elementary school, and more get added every year. Special community projects are encouraged, as children learn to serve others. Is there a perfect school? This one may be close!

CrossRoads is a unique mix of home-based learning two days a week and three days of learning at school with caring Christian teachers. The teachers teach the new concepts during school days and then send home a homework packet to do on the other days at home reinforcing what was learned at school. CrossRoads has many extras including Spanish, Music, Chapel, PE. field trips, SAT Testing, spelling bees, as well as all of the core subjects including the Bible. Students are challenged and enjoy the small school community of friends and families. I would highly recommend this school.

I have two children at Cross Roads. We have grown with the school for the past 4 years. I enjoy the time to homeschool a couple days and the benefits of a teacher and friends. The thing I like most about the school is that it changes to make the best opportunities for the children. Multiple teachers in the higher grades give them a better education, and prepare them for high school. The Kindergarten teacher is Amazing! Each teacher we have had has been wonderful at listening to our needs and stretching my children to their full potential.
