Frequently Asked Questions
Must I attend South Ridge Community Church?

Do you have childcare beyond school hours?

What does your curriculum include?
Crossroads provides a rigorous, multi-sensory education through creative, active lessons. The core subjects are progressive and age appropriate. Students begin by learning the basics of reading through a systematic approach to phonics, and progress to complex tasks such as being able to analyze multiple texts that provide conflicting information on the same topic and identifying where the texts disagree on matters of fact or interpretation. In addition to Bible and core subjects, CCA offers music, art, computer, library, Spanish, and physical education classes. Crossroads chooses resources and textbooks that support the Common Core Standards, that present the material well, and that are consistent with Christian education. Both Christian and secular publishers are used; however, all subjects are taught within the context of Christian values.
Do you provide transportation?
No, Crossroads does not provide transportation; the majority of our families have carpooling arrangements. Depending on where you live, you may be eligible to receive a NJ State reimbursement of $1,000.00 for each child enrolled in K-8th grade at Crossroads.
Do students wear uniforms?
Students wear school approved tops from Land’s End. All students wear tan, navy or black khaki pants and sneakers. Friday is jeans day. Shorts or skirts are allowed as long as they meet our dress code standards.
Do you have a lunch program?
Crossroads offers a hot lunch program of delicious, nutritious meals. When possible, we order organic produce and packaged goods to make the program as clean and whole food as possible, and the majority of the hot lunches are made from scratch. Ordering is done on a monthly basis online through RenWeb Parents Web. For children with a nut allergy, we have a nut free table available in our cafeteria.
Is there tuition assistance?
Yes, Crossroads works closely with parents who want their children to benefit from a Christian education.
