What is our school code?

When registering for SATs or ACTs, a student may be asked for our “CEEB code” or school code. It is 341-764.

Is CCS a college preparatory school?

Crossroads provides a high school curriculum that follows the college preparatory track that is in place in all North Carolina public schools. This track exceeds the minimum admission requirements (MAR) of the 17 UNC-system institutions (including colleges such as ECU, UNC-Ch, NCSU, ASU, etc.).

As for our students’ responsibilities for getting into the college of their choice, they must earn a competitive GPA, participate in extracurricular activities, score competitively on their college entrance tests (SAT, ACT), and work to make themselves stand out to college admissions officers. Crossroads gives them these opportunities, if they choose to take them.

Do all students study the Bible?

Students at CCS attend Bible classes on a daily basis.  Age-appropriate concepts emphasize both Bible knowledge and personal application, along with Scripture memorization.  In addition, biblical integration is woven through the curriculum as teachers challenge students to evaluate academic concepts based on God’s Word.

NOTE: When we need to make up a significant amount of instructional time missed due to inclement weather, the head of school & board may add minutes to each day. Any changes to the schedule are communicated to our parents in a timely manner.

What is the school’s position on holiday activities?

To respect the views of all parents, we make every effort to avoid controversial topics and images. Since some of our parents take exception to Halloween, Santa Claus, elves, and the Easter Bunny, we will not focus on these ideas in our classroom. All holiday activities and parties must be pre-approved by the headmaster.  CCS does not acknowledge any significance related to October 31.

What is the school’s position on alcohol, tobacco products, and illegal drugs?

First, it must be stated that the use of any of these by school-age children is unlawful.  Our student handbook states that the possession or use of any of these will result in serious disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion.  The Board is committed to a drug-free environment.  Science and health curricula include information about the destructiveness of alcohol, tobacco products, and illegal drugs.

What are the school colors?

The school colors are navy blue, hunter green, and white.

What is the school mascot?

We are the Crossroads Christian School Colts.

Is the school asbestos-free?

The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all schools to inspect building materials for the presence of asbestos. AHERA excludes schools from the inspection requirement if the school was constructed after October 12, 1988, and has a signed statement from the architect or project engineer responsible for constructing the school stating that no asbestos-containing building materials were specified for use in the construction of the school.  Our school has been provided such a statement, and is, therefore, exempt from the requirement to conduct an asbestos inspection.  Copy of the EPA – AHERA Asbestos Notification for 2020-21.
