Crossroads Charter Academy Middle/High School Reviews
My son started at CCA at the beginning of the 2017/18 school year, after having some pretty major issues at a BRPS elementary school. He has excelled greatly at CCA, and as long as we live in the general area, he will be attending this school. My only real complaint is that, at times, communication about events seems to be lacking. Sometimes we're notified of things way in advance, other times, it's last minute. Other than that, all the staff have been great, my son is thriving, and I love the small classroom sizes!
We have been involved with CCA for almost 20 years. A few years ago I would have given the school a much higher rating, but I feel that the last year it has lost a lot of what made it great. The character education it was known for has slipped and the sports program that was excellent has become a joke. The new AD does not put forth any effort in finding quality coaches and it definitely shows in the programs. The good athletes are no longer participating or transfering to other schools in the area. Athletics are not everything, but they are an important part of high school. Academically the school is doing well, but once you lose the student athletes, and character education, academics will surely follow.
I graduated from Crossroads Charter Academy last year and continued my education at Central Michigan University. My transition to college was not a difficult one and I believe that is due to the education I received at CCA. The school focuses on academics above all else which is wonderful. However, CCA lacks diversity among staff and students. Students are also not able to take AP courses. Dual enrollment at Ferris State University in Big Rapids is the only advanced class option for upperclassmen at CCA. Although it was not necessarily a problem for me, I do recall a number of upperclassmen could not take advantage of the dual enrollment option due to lack of transportation to and from the college. Other than these things I have noticed, CCA is a good school. I applied to most of the scholarships that were funded specifically by CCA or in association with CCA during my senior year and I have to say winning some of these scholarships greatly helped me fund my first year in college.
