Crossing Academy is a Christian school for 3’s, 4’s & and Kindergarten. We offer full-day programs for all ages with variable options to best help the needs of our families. Before and after care is available for families who need it.  Our mission is to help students think biblically and thrive academically. Thinking biblically means we facilitate an environment where our children know that they are loved, cherished, and have a special created purpose that God has given them. To thrive academically means we want to raise up life-long learners who enjoy the process of growing in their knowledge and skills.
