Crossroads Charter Academy Middle/High School Reviews

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.

I moved to CCA in my sixth grade year. Since then I've always had a pretty strong connection with my teachers. Most of the teachers there really care about their students and that's something you really don't see all that often. However, there are two teachers I came into conflict with due to their beliefs affecting their work and their students. This bias can be seen in sports and clubs as well. Only certain groups are worshiped unlike others. Like most schools they let their uniform policy get in the way of them actually teaching. One thing I will give this school, is that their academics are taught very well, and there is almost no bullying. I've never seen such limited social conflict. This school demands and displays respect so much so that it feels like home.
I was at CCA for 13 years. It is a very friendly and helpful atmosphere all through my classes. Each teacher has the time to spend with me if I need the extra attention, even if its just a laugh. They also come to games and show support to the athletic teams.
