Mission and Philosophy
Crosscreek Charter School inspires academic excellence by empowering each student to reach his/her fullest potential as a lifelong learner. In order to best respond to each child's unique learning style, the school offers an educational experience based on well-researched innovative methods. Educators, students and parents work together to create a nurturing, child-based learning environment to develop the whole child as a responsible, compassionate member of both the school and its surrounding community.
Crosscreek is a community based school dedicated to providing the best educational experience to all children of Franklin County and surrounding areas. Low student-teacher ratios, small overall school size and active family participation allow faculty, parents and students to create a feeling of community for children of different races, religions, socio-economic backgrounds and academic abilities. The school community is also supported and enhanced by our larger Franklin County community.
About Our School
Our school opened in August of 2001. The vision of this school's child-centered and family-oriented learning community began with a group of parents in Franklin County who dreamed of a school for their children where "every child could be empowered to reach their potential as a lifelong learner." Today our facility, staff, and parents continue to provide academic and social activities that allow children to find and practice their individuality. Like any school, we constantly seek ways to grow and continue to learn with our students how best to create a school that is innovative and enriching in its practice. Through this site, we want to share our ideas, our hopes and our vision with you.
