- Crossroads Academy is an independent, coeducational day school for students in grades kindergarten through eight. Crossroads sequential, classic curriculum is based on the Core Knowledge philosophy as developed by E.D. Hirsch, and the Core Virtues Program, a character education program created by our founding head. Head of School, Jean Behnke, says, "Our practices and our campus support our engaging and experienced faculty in delivering these two programs to our student body. Upon graduation, our students attend the finest public and private high schools in New England." In 2004, Crossroads was accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), whose visiting committee noted, "Students at Crossroads Academy appear happy to be there…(they are) actively engaged in their work with a sense of fun, respect, curiosity and enthusiasm." Crossroads enrolls over 140 students from a forty-mile radius of Upper Valley communities including Lyme, Hanover, Orford, Lebanon, Piermont, Haverhill, Grantham, Pike, Newport, Enfield, Orange, Grafton, and Canaan in New Hampshire, and Norwich, Thetford, Randolph, Quechee, Corinth, Tunbridge, Waterford, Woodstock, and South Pomfret in Vermont.
