Welcome to the best in education!


At Crossroads Christian, our goal is to assist the family in the mentorship and education of the student, and to ensure they have every opportunity for success. We offer curriculum from multiple sources and from publishers who provide superior educational courses and resources that help present that material most effectively. To provide the best materials for each course of mastery learning we offer virtual, consumable, and both on and off campus classroom instruction options for you and your child.

 

Small class sizes and qualified instructors ensure that students get the education they need to be successful.

 

We know every student’s life is different. That’s why CCS works with students and families to create their own schedule to offer flexible, personalized education with the best of classroom learning. CCS provides one-on-one teacher support for a custom-fit education. We remove the limitations imposed by a physical classroom and let students learn at their own ideal pace. Our students move faster and get multiple lessons done per day or take additional time on a concept to ensure mastery.

 

We know that students learn best when the material is relevant to them. Our one-on-one and small group instruction education model is designed for each individual student at all grades: K-12. Our education model helps struggling learners catch up to grade level as we quickly close learning gaps. It also allows students to complete two grades at one time, or other students to quickly complete one grade and move immediately on to the next grade. Why wait until next year?

 

Your children aren't just sitting in class anymore, staring at the ceiling, waiting for a lesson to be done that they already know. They aren't wasting time waiting anymore. They get immediate assistance if they need help mastering a concept.

 

What are your child’s educational needs? Don’t let your classroom limit you. What are you ready for?

 

As students come and go, enroll and graduate, and move on, we also employ active measures to assess performance and verify we meet state standards. CCS uses two types of alignments: external alignment and internal alignment.

 

External alignment is when the curriculum aligns with state mandated standards and testing objectives for what students should know and be able to do.

 

Internal alignment happens when our classroom instructional approaches and assessments reflect the objective of the standards.

 

Our programs mean your student is receiving rigorous academics and the highest quality education possible. CCS is proud to put students on practical paths to post-graduate success with innovative courses that promote critical thinking, emphasize problem solving, and prepare students to enter the work force or to further their education. CCS graduates have attended many institutes of higher learning, and that list continues to grow each year.

 

 

What we do: we provide a structured, interactive, self-paced education where each student has a curriculum based on his or her individual educational needs and academic goals. From Modified to Advanced Placement courses, every student will have the opportunity to succeed.

Home School Terminology

CCS is a THSC Partner Group

The Texas Home School Coalition provides a wealth of information for the homeschool community and more info can be found on their website at www.thsc.org.

Home School Terminology

THSC definition of a home schooled student:
A home schooled student predominantly receives instruction in a general, elementary or secondary education program that is provided by the parent—or a person standing in parental authority—in or through the child’s home [Texas Education Code 29.916 (a)].

The parent or person standing in parental authority might contract with outside sources in order that the student receives additional instruction. For example, a private tutor, co-op class or a college class. However, this source or these sources do not circumvent the parent’s role in determining the overall success or failure of the student.

Home school group:
All home school groups on our list seek to serve families who meet the definition of home schooling. This means their children participate in the group, but the group will not attempt to become an authority over the student’s education, per the definition of home schooling. THSC Partner Groups meet criteria as defined on THSC Types of Groups.

Private school:
Private school is a broad category of describing any non-public school. This includes traditional accredited private schools that require daily attendance and tuition, unaccredited private schools which are similar but not subject to the same accreditation requirements, home schools which are a type of private school but not regulated the same way as other types of private school, and other options that are a hybrid of these different types. For example, in a university model school, a student might attend the school 2-3 days per week and then be schooled at home for the rest of the week.
