At The Crossroads Academy

At The Crossroads Academy Boarding Schools for Young Adults - Crossroads helps struggling young adults (ages 18-25) become successful by teaching the values and skilled necessary to live independently in the real world.

We realize that there are many pathways an individual can choose in life. Our Program guides each student down a Pathway that will lead to success. The path for each student is tailored to meet their individual needs, interests and goals.

While at Crossroads students work daily to advance through “Pathways” that help them experience success as they gain valuable experience in becoming a well-balanced, independent adult. Each of the Pathways is separated into three steps. As students implement action plans and achieve goals, they advance through the steps for each Pathway. Students start each Pathway focusing on taking care of their basic needs, then begin looking outside themselves and eventually advance to become leaders and examples to others. Each Pathway step includes higher expectations of the student, increased independence and reduced frequency of monitoring. The program is designed for students to move through all of the Pathways over an eight to twelve month period.
