Tel: (310)829-7391
Grades: K - 12 | 1159 students
Crossroads School came into being in 1971 to provide a new approach to education.
It was founded by a small group of educators and parents, led by co-founders Dr. Paul Cummins and Dr. Rhoda Makoff, whose goal was to provide a diverse student body a coeducational college preparatory education combining academic excellence with a comprehensive fine and performing arts program, community service, athletic challenge, and environmental education.
Crossroad is a distinctly progressive school offering an intellectually demanding and creative curriculum within a supportive, personal environment that has at its base the notion of safety, equity, and inclusion for all.
Crossroads strives to help each student develop a personal commitment to learning, a respect for independent thinking, a sense of social commitment, an appreciation of the valuable traditions of the past, and a concern for the future.
Crossroads students are provided a spectrum of program opportunities including visual arts, literature, language, music, math, drama, history, science, dance, athletics, computer science, community service, and environmental/experiential education.
