Crossroads Academy is committed to academic excellence and moral integrity. It inspires its students to love learning, act honorably, and contribute actively to intellectual, cultural, and civic life.
Founded in 1991 by Mary Beth Klee, Crossroads Academy is an independent, coeducational day school for students in kindergarten through grade eight. Crossroads was one of the first independent schools in the nation to adopt—and then expand—the sequential, classic curriculum based on the Core Knowledge philosophy as developed by E.D. Hirsch. Our curriculum is integrated with a unique Core Virtues Program, a character education program created by our founder. According to Head of School Brad Choyt, “Our educational framework and 140-acre woodland campus empower experienced faculty to deliver a rich educational program. Upon graduation, Crossroads students attend the finest public and private high schools in New England and beyond.”
Crossroads enrolls more than 135 students from within a 50-mile radius. Students are drawn from numerous Upper Valley communities including Lyme, Hanover, Canaan, Orford, Lebanon, Piermont, Monroe, Grantham, Enfield, Grafton, and Warren in New Hampshire, and Norwich, Thetford, Fairlee, Topsham, Hartford, Vershire, and Woodstock in Vermont.
