Crossroad Academy is indeed the premier school in Gadsden County. The school's mission to educate with a business empahsis certainly impacts students beyond the basics and gives real-life lessons that students can take with them. I can see the school's effotrs to make students competitive beyond FCAT and strives to motivate students to become 'college bound competitive.' The school is advanced.

Crossroad Academy is a school of excellence, where students not only learn, but their lives are transformed. We boast of great teachers, rigorous curriculum, and growing parental support. One of our sixth grade students made a perfect FCAT score in Reading, just to name one of the accomplishments that sets us apart from other schools. I am a proud teacher and parent of an excelling Crossroad Academy Charter school scorpion.

My child is involved in pre-K. She seems very, very excited about learning. She takes learning seriously at age 5. She wants to continue learning even after the school day has ended.

Crossroad Academy Charter School is a school of excellence. Being that I just graduated from Crossroad I know exactly what I'm talking about. Crossroad defines themselves as a school of business & industry. They are truly representing their name. CACS' theme for last school term was Think Success. Imagine Future. Achieve Goals! They will do whatever it takes to make sure that each student meets promotion requirements. Now that I'm attending EGHS I can proudly take Crossroad with me mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. I miss all of my faculty and staff members very much. Hopefully they will receive this review.

I would not recommend this school to anyone who values their childrens education. Although my childrens FCAT scores improved I not reenrolling them for a second school years. After last term all the great middle school teachers have left for other assignments.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
