Our family loves CCS! We have 3 children here and couldn't imagine being anywhere else! Our kids are growing academically and spiritually on a daily basis!
Crossings Christian School is where our 4th graders and preschooler go to school. The school is awesome and facilitates a culture of kindness on a daily basis. Our kids love going to CCS! Many parents are involved at CCS and that involvement is encouraged and appreciated. We love CCS!
The phenomenal growth of CCS is a result of their commitment to spiritual development and focus on academic excellence. The high school has developed college workbooks and is introducing Naviance (also used at Casady and Heritage Hall) for college research and planning. Juniors have a full week of intense work on college application/essay. They currently have 7 AP classes and 20 Pre-AP and Honors courses, dual credit/concurrent enrolment courses are available for Juniors/Seniors through John Brown University, and they also offers a partnership with Francis Tuttle in Engineering and Medicine The CCS ACT average is 25 (national average - 21.1), and the SAT average is 2100 (national average - 1498). Eighth graders take EXPLORE (Pre-ACT), and 9th -11th graders take PLAN (pre-ACT) to prepare for ACT and SAT. We had only dreamed of finding a school that supported the values and training from our home. My children are growing in Christ, developing godly character, and are being prepared for a successful life. I am forever grateful for the CCS visionaries who made this school possible.
I am a sophomore here and while no school is perfect, Crossings is superior compared to what I've seen at other so-called Christian schools in the metro. Attendance and punctuality are heavily encouraged. They don't focus on sports but the Booster Club encourages students to get involved in some way with extra curricular activities they offer. The school is growing all the time and still has a way to go thanks to the Lord. They will add a Middle School building (which means Middle schoolers are in the Upper School building for now), a baseball field, 6 tennis courts, and a real football stadium with a track. Everyone in the school is extremely friendly and ask if you like the school overall. The new Headmaster loves the students and wants the kids to have fun while running a tight ship at the same time. Parent involvement seems very high and the teachers care about the students' success. There's the saying, "You get what you pay for." That is a very true statement for the quality of education Crossings provides. I highly recommend this school if your looking for Christian education for your children.
If you have not been to this school lately, you will be very pleased by their progress. They don't even advertise and it is growing by over 100 students per year. Where are these children coming from? Public schools that are over-crowded and ill- managed. Crossings is not for everyone. Their mission statement centers around Christ, and it unashamedly walks it. Children are not accepted unless at or above grade level. Children are encouraged to honor God with their excellence in all areas. Discipline is firm, yet loving. Parents are very involved and active. Communication between teachers and parents is impressive. Classes are challenging, and your child must make an effort to be here. You must see what God has done in the last few years at this amazing place.
Our granddaughters attend Crossings and we couldn't be more pleased. I am an elementary school teacher with a recent master's degree in curriculum and instructional design. Not only does this excellent school meet and exceed the global common core curriculum, it instills social conscience and awareness in a spirit-filled environment. The knowledge, confidence, and faith our granddaughters exude is truly inspirational. Thank you, faculty and staff at Crossings Christian School
We are so blessed to have selected Crossings for our daughter's first experience in school in pre-K. She absolutely loves her teachers and friends. The school not only teaches our daughter her letters and numbers etc., but she also learns other important traits, such as how to respect and love others and most importantly how to love and follow God's teachings.
This school has a long way to go before they can be considered a college prep school. If you are looking for a middle or high school that is academically challenging I do not recommend Crossings at this time. I also believe the school administration does not have the qualifications needed to run the school. The school board consists mostly of members from the church and their children do not attend the school.
IF your kids are failing thats not crossings fault or any schools fault. This school is amazing. Go ccs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our children attended Crossings and we left due to concerns with the quality of education. Upon returning to public school, both children were performing BELOW GRADE LEVEL as compared to the other students at Edmond Public Schools. I am thankful we had enough sense to leave before more damage was done. I guess the old saying is true - you get what you pay for. Crossings costs less than other private schools because it is a subpar education. We should have seen that as a red flag and stayed in public schools.
Disappointed with the easy curriculum. This school caters to students who are just at or below their grade level. The middle school and high school grades are lacking in discipline, in-depth learning, and experienced leadership. (The people in the top four positions at the school had NEVER served in those positions before they came to Crossings.) The strengths of this school? The lower grades (wonderful preschool and kindergartens) and the parental involvement. We will continue to support/use the preschool, which has well-qualified, experienced, loving teachers.
Crossings Christian School has provided my two children with a solid education based on specific and carefully carried out learning objectives. I have one child in elementary school and one in middle school. Both schools have wonderful highly trained teachers and a demanding curriculum that is preparing my children for college. Both children attended public school prior to starting at Crossings and the difference in quality is amazing. I highly recommend this school because of its academic excellence. The safe, friendly Christian environment is the icing on the cake.
Our family was greatly disappointed in the quality of curriculum, teacher experience, and complete lack of credentials in the school's administration. We have returned to public school and have found that the curriculum instruction, classroom structure, and experienced, knowledgeable teachers and administration to be far superior to what we experienced at Crossings Christian School. CCS needs a complete overhaul on their ability to instruct students to prepare them for college and life.
My son started school here this past fall. He loves the school, the teachers, and the students. He has thrived here! The teachers and staff are awesome; they are not here just for the paycheck. Rather, it is so evident that they are here because they love children and have a calling to be here. My son cried when he found out that this week was Spring Break and there was no school. He told me he missed his teachers and wanted to go TODAY. It is so refreshing to hear him want to be there instead of on a break. At every function so far that I have attended, the Head Master prays and invites the Lord to be present and glorified in what happens there. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!
Our two children have attended CCS for five years. It may be the best buy in private education in the OKC Metro. The student-teacher ratio is roughly 13 to 1. Most subjects are rooted in Christian ideals. Our 8 year old is dyslexic and without an astute teacher's observations, we're pretty sure he would not have been diagnosed and given the help he needs. We have him enrolled in the schools AP Phonics program. reasonably priced and wonderfully taught. The extra-curricular activities are limited but growing. Most parents are actively involved in some form or another. From reading to the kids to lending teachers a hand to organizing fundraisers, the parents are an integral part of the school. Overall, an excellent place with visionary leadership from the principal and head master.
